This year is not letting up and part of me feels like I didn't really start a new year but rather, added a 13th month to my calendar.
The thing is, I've had to take the time. I've had to put the brakes on the crazy. If I don't do it, no one will. While I don't have resolutions (you guys know how I feel about those), I do have goals and aspirations.
My biggest one this month is to take time for me. I know the lesson, y'all. Why is it so difficult to execute? I don't have a history of self-care in my family so this is all new to me. Enter my new mornings.
I wake up before I need to get the kid up and out of the house for school. And I do two things:
- I mediate
I have some apps I use for meditation (haven't settled on just one yet). And for the delight? Well, that's simple. Enter my C Squared aka caramel chofee! Let the record show that I have a 20 oz coffee cup. While I can drink out of this one cup all day, I only have this one cup. Here's the quick and yummy recipe.
I like to put 2 shot glasses of the hot chocolate and one shot glass of creamer into my cup, fill up the rest with coffee and then sit somewhere. While sitting, I invite you to look around in gratitude, breathe easy and enjoy what might be the only quiet moments of the day.
This drink feels luxurious to me because of the chocolate. Like, what's not luxurious about that? And if I'm feeling fancy and have few more minutes to sit and enjoy the quiet, I drop some whipped cream on top because, it's 2016, folks! Let's live a little!!!!!
This is how I'm delighting in the near year. How about you?
