Inward Journey

Snow scene at Shipka PassImage via WikipediaA lot has changed for me the past year. I help start a non-profit and I got a job and became the bread winner of my family. This has caused a lot of inner conflict for me as I find myself unable to find a new balance yet. I am looking forward to the Winter months not just for the beautiful landscapes the snow provides but for the purpose of looking inward to find my new peace.

I recently asked, "Why is it so hard to pursue happiness?"
I think the best answer that I received was "because happiness changes"
As with everything in life!

I look around and see the last of the leaves falling to the ground and feel the chill in the air. While, I don't look forward to the commercialism of the holiday to come that I always succumb to due to respect for my husband...
I do find some little joys that do come with this season.
So while I look inward to find my new path I will be sure to remember my hot cups of tea, snuggles in bed and comforting smells of spiced baked goods.

I love your answer to the happiness question. Happiness does change doesn't it?

I find that the period between Samhain and Yule is when I gather together in my mind what I want for the next year and Yule is when I plant those intentions.
