Oh, East Coast February, you aren’t my favorite. We’re about done digging ourselves out of the holidays but can’t quite see the light of spring. It’s true, March isn’t far off, but I am always overeager for the arrival of warmer temps, crocus blooms and wispy silks. This month tends to be a little darker, a little colder and a little longer than I’d like, even though it’s a scant 28 days long. I blame it on that damned groundhog.
I’ve been finding comfort in three bean chili, almond milk cappuccinos, lots of hugs, snuggles with a reluctant Mac, hard core sweat sessions, hot yoga and of course, an appropriate playlist: ease and grace. It’s less about powering through and more about being inside of the darkness. Feeling what it’s like. Breathing in light, exhaling darkness and finding strength from within. There is always room for a little more levity, more smiles and gratitude in everything you do. Listen here, and tell me if you dig.
