I am on a plane making my way back to Los Angeles after a much-needed escape back home to the Midwest for Thanksgiving. I leave feeling full; literally and figuratively. Full from the massive amounts of food & drink I consumed but also filled with a hearty dose of family and friends.
Our roots are what shape us and help us become who and what we are. Mine start in Wisconsin and a part of me will always remain where I began.For me, the holidays provide an excuse to eat what I want, have an extra (or three) glasses of wine, laugh, relax and ultimately let my guard down. I realize this is not the case for everyone as families come in all sorts and sizes. My remedy is to focus on the best moments and live in those memories.
As I sit here in turbulence, over the great Western Plains, I realize my transition back into reality today is also a bit choppy.
Maybe it is just the Monday blues or a post-holiday melancholy….either way, I need a little help to restart my reality after the holiday break.
Luella says…Pass the Cream and Inspiration.
These images provided a respite for me on this hard day back to the grind. I am going to make a considerate effort to find more of these in my every day life.
How do you remedy a moody Monday? I am open for any and all suggestions.
