stop, remember, relax...

It's World AIDS day, a time to remember those that we've lost to this disease, those that fought to make others more aware of it and the prejudice that faced many dealing with it, and a chance to continue to hope and fight for a cure.

I've had a lovely day off.  I slept in, went to see Burlesque (which was so enjoyable and better than I expected and full of great music), and just hung out.  I put no pressure on myself to accomplish things and it has been refreshing.

And it's Wishcasting Wednesday, a chance to put your wishes out into the universe, to share them with others, and to share in the dreams of others.  I love it.

This week Jamie asks:

Where do you wish to go slow?



I think this is the perfect question for this time of year, where a lot of us tend to move at such fast paces, going from obligation to obligation, without taking time for ourselves and to truly enjoy the moments with friends and family. 

I want to slow down and take a breath during this month.  Take stock and be happy in those moments with my friends and sister.  And to simply not worry so much about things that really don't matter and focus on those things I can do for others and myself.

I wish to slow down this month, like I've managed to do today, without putting any rules on myself to live up to some unattainable standard that leaves no one happy.

As you wish to be happy in the moment and just breathe, I wish for you also.
