Year of Contentment 2023

Contentment keeps coming up for me. I have been choosing to let pressures get in the way instead of caring for my psyche. Winter in Wisconsin is a beautiful and reflective time, a time to choose contentment, hygge, to snuggle in as well as get outdoors. Practice makes habit, so 2023 will be a year of seeing and creating contentment. Join me in this healthy practice. Happy New Year!

Year of Contentment 2023
Year of Contentment

Contentment lives inside
in the quiet reaches of knowing,
that old knowing,
in our bones.
Contentment lives in Nature knowing
the birds sing.
I, too, sing my song of little joys.

A new year to see
from a perch of contentment
Believe it and see it,
see it everywhere
in the face of a sleeping babe,
a snowy sunrise,
a belly laugh,
the transition of a loved one.
Contentment is in the daily mundane
and life-event passages.

In this new year,
use words of Contentment
of celebration
of love.
Emulate Contentment
to help others find theirs.
Love thyself
Love our blessed world
for here is where we dwell
the untrodden path within,
