Cultivate solitude and quiet and a few sincere friends, rather than mob merriment, noise and thousands of nodding acquaintances.

And now Christmas is almost over in my time zone and the countdown for new year begins
At a time when everyone is overdosing on everything Christmassy, excitement over 2018, I am starting to feel very very fatigued by this whole joy and Cheer part of Holiday Season.
No, I am not depressed or suffer from lethargy in general, I am just not into anything fun at all at this point. I am tired. My cheeks hurt. My legs ache and my ears yearn for some white noise.
It’s maybe my introvert inside rebelling against my extrovert exterior or it may be feeling kind of like eating too much of that chocolate cake you love and then feeling bloated and uncomfortable after it. Too much of a good thing you know.
My body and mind are craving some quiet time. I want to sit alone, watching the world from my window. I want to quietly read a book. I don’t even want my little one around for like few hours ( there, I said it!)
I want zero festivity & a massive piece of peace.
What are you feeling?
Does too much of a good thing make you too crave for your bat cave?
Do share. I am all ears.
