‘The Ice House’
It’s okay to feel tired and It’s okay to need to rest.
Just because it’s Christmas, just because we’re told that everyone has to be the life and soul of the party because it’s Christmas, doesn’t mean you can’t take time out if you need to.
And if your experiences, either now or in the past, mean that you don’t want all the music and parties, fuddles and Christmas jumper days, that it all just feels too much, that’s okay too. Christmas doesn’t mean you have to stop having human vulnerabilities and needs.
Or put it another way. We’re mammals and it’s okay to hibernate at times if you need to. Forget for now the fear and the fury, the noise and the madness.Lay in the embrace of Winter and sleep and dream.
