New Year, One Week Home

The holidays can be an extremely magical yet emotionally taxing time. It goes by quickly and reminds us of all we love and lack — and for that I am grateful.

In the past two weeks, I’ve been able to catch back up with myself. When you’re always on the move and always working, it can get easy to get stuck in your own world. It becomes hard to really be present for the people, places, relationships and loved ones around you. The holidays quiet the noise.

I tend to put myself into my work so much that I can forget to take it easy. Being home has not only allowed me that time to reconnect with my heart, mind, body and soul, but also reconnect with the people who have taken up the biggest spaces in my heart.

“Home looks good on you.”

There was a teacher who quickly became an older sister to me in high school. She was a young mom and told me she wanted her daughters to be like me. Crazy, but it’s humbling to be reminded of my still heart, what I grew up on, what I’m living for…

A mother’s is endless, and I am always so inspired by single moms and can only hope to one day be that mom too.

We all need a little holiday to remind us why we’re here — what we’re living for, what our purpose is, what we can look forward to.

Home is my happy place, and I’m thankful for those who make home feel like home to me — and make leaving it that much harder! Yes, I’m a sentimental sap but I figure it’s these kind of moments that we live for. Sending you all my love out there, for more power to make this new year your year.

There’s a lot to be thinking of as the new year is well under way — changing course of work, goals, aspirations, personal health, relationships and my relationship with myself.

But damn home, you get me every time.

Let’s fall in love with life all over again.

With love and honesty,

Rachel
