Hygge

Hygge 

Even though we have already had the winter solstice, for those of us in the thrust of winter, sometimes it seems that the early darkness won’t get shorter anytime soon. While wintertime can be long, especially January; the plus side is this is the season to get your Hygge on!

Maybe you will just get cozy and embrace all those favorite things that make snuggling up so fun to do.

Some simple and easy ways to get your Hygge on are:

  • have a favorite warm drink
  • put on some soothing or favorite music
  • read a good book or more
  • change up your environment with new scents
  • changing your lighting can change your mood
  • watch a favorite movie
  • take a short nap with a cozy throw
  • wear your favorite soft sweater, even if it is old
  • enjoy a cozy fire or just enjoy some quiet time watching it snow
  • make a favorite family dish

While Hygge can mean different things for each  of us, it all involves enjoying the moment. What are those small things that make a day special for you? How long has it been since you have done your favorite?  By changing up our routines and doing something we enjoy that is cozy and involves the senses, it can help make us less prone to affective seasonal disorder and depression. It can lift our outlook and attitude when we incorporate some time especially for those simple things we enjoy and that gives us little breaks in our day to look forward to. Even at the end of a very busy day, just something short and cozy can make it just right. So what are we waiting for… let’s get our Hygge on!

Living Life

New Beginnings

Journal Entry: Jan 02, 2021 ~ Today is the beginning of another year and the end of one that I am not sad to see go. While it could have been much worse, it has been worse for so many which makes me sad. It is not just one part of our world, but the whole world that has experienced so much unhappiness due to Covid-19. But we have started a new year with promises of a better year as immunizations have started.

While many lives have been impacted, it has also resulted in many coming to better realize what is truly important in life. Many families have developed deeper relationships due to having to slow down the non-ending rush of activities to spending more time together. The holidays have had their challenges also. While being in an older at risk group, while I appreciate the increased protection from exposure; in some ways, I also feel like I’ve been put on a shelf to pick up living at a later time.

This year, I am looking forward to never taking for granted again being able to hug my love ones, visit and share meals with family and friends, and be able to travel whenever I want … and hopefully without a mask. I am grateful even though I feel guilty as if complaining. I am looking forward to this new year of healing, love, fun times, travel, and sharing love. I am planning on living the life I imagined and hopefully you will too. ~

Thank you for visiting. ~ terre

Sunday

Prayer of Saint Francis of Assisi

 A Prayer of Saint Francis of Assisi

                                               Lord make me an instrument of Your peace.

Where there is hatred, let me sow love.

Where there is injury, pardon,

Where there is doubt, faith,

Where there is despair, hope,

Where there is darkness, light,

   and where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much

seek to be consoled, as to console,

To be understood, as to understand,

To be loved, as to love,

For it is in giving that we receive and

it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,

And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

 

If this prayer speaks to you, please feel free to share. Thank you for visiting today.  ~ terre

Challenges & Positivity

Staying positive

No matter where you are or what you are having to do at this difficult time, staying positive can be oh so hard when our world has been turned upside down. But you can do it. Just finding one positive or lovely thought a day can help you get through and make such a huge difference in being able to do what needs to be done. Thinking of you all… we will make it through this and hopefully when it is all done, we will be a kinder, peaceful and more loving world. Blessings for strength and courage wherever you are. ~terre
