When we are low, or when we are navigating choppy waters, it can help to look at things from a different place. For me, that is helpful in not allowing roots to grow in the place I find myself.
I’m often late to Christmas decorating, trying to bring house order first. This year, I decided to go early, swap the priority. Our tree always goes in the hall. It looked great there in a spot made for it - but then a piano arrived a couple of Christmases in and, for more than ten years, every December, they have been like two lead singers when somebody has to be the lead guitarist!
So last week we put the Christmas tree up in the kitchen. It’s a generous room and there is a great spot for it. I’m sitting here now smiling as I wonder why it took so long to adapt and change. (Ditto the garden table blog in summertime!)
I find that lesson comforting. We can change things at any point we like. And we can change things when we are ready, not when we feel we should be ready.
Hello tree, in the kitchen with me.
