It’s that time of the year again!
My experience this time of the year can either be lots of ho ho ho-ing or OMG where is the time going and how am I going to get everything done?
I have always loved the holiday season. Show me anything with red, green or other sparkly colors and I get all a ga-ga. Add in the playful (Santa) and elegant (Angels) symbols of the season, and I’m in holiday heaven.
Yet, if I’m not being conscious about how to “do” the holidays, I can end up being quite stressed out. This used to happen to me all the time.
Instead of feeling the magic of the season, I often ended up feeling more like the Grinch instead.
So, I don’t do that anymore…or at least if I find myself starting to even go down that road…I quickly remind myself what I truly want: to be connected with the wonder and magic of life, which connects me to the ultimate spirit of the season: Joy!
And, as I’ve been quite busy as the year winds down, I know now, more than ever, how important it is for me to keep myself grounded in what I really want this season. Otherwise, I’ll get out of balance, be an unhappy elf, and be disconnected from my joy. That’s no fun!
This year, I’m looking forward to staying home, decorating (got it started this past weekend) and spending time with friends at small gatherings we’re planning (instead of hosting a big party).
It’s all about keeping tabs on what will keep me from getting stressed and what will bring me more joy and comfort, too! I wish the same for you, too!
