I can’t believe we’re already nearing the end of January. Time flies, but I for one am so grateful for how this month unfolded. For me, this has truly been a month of slow living and reflection. Music over TV, books over blogs, outside over inside, writing as much as I possibly can, taking inventory of material possessions and asking myself the simple question of “does this add value?”
Quite honestly, I was nervous to stay in Naples for a couple of months while I figured out what would come next, but now that I’m one month deep and only have another month to go before I make the next move, I’m cherishing every single moment. I’m so grateful, because I know it’s rare for us as human beings to be able to create time away from our day to day lives and routines. It isn’t the “norm”, and it isn’t wildly accepted in our culture of the tilted work/life balance – favoring the former over the latter, of course.
But it’s doable. It’s healthy. Let me be your proof ;)
So, on to the music. I wanted to start sharing monthly playlists that I’ve created. I liked the idea of categorizing the music I was in to each month, because as we all know – music is a reflection of how we’re feeling at any given time. It’s fascinating when I look back at what I was listening to six months from now, or even a year from now. Sometimes I cringe ;) and that’s okay, but it’s a unique way of time travel. A different way to look back. So here’s this month’s collection – hope you enjoy! x
