I freaking LOVE Christmas!! Or, at least, I used too…
This year, it’s been difficult to get in the holiday spirit.😢
I’m not sure exactly what’s going on with me;
whether it’s that my brother isn’t going to be home for the first time ever; or
if it’s the lack of adequate snow in our usually frozen prairie; or
maybe it’s that I’ve just got so much going on right now that the busy is overtaking the cheer…
I suspect a combination of all the things but likely the largest part is being busy.
I told my mom that, for Christmas, what I really want is time. After recently reading an article on the power of “Nope”, I realized that time is something I need to create for myself, so;
This year, I’m saying no.🙅♀️
No to unnecessary gatherings.
No to needing decoration perfection.
No to over-gifting.
No to doing it all myself.
I’m going to make time, and room, for
more looking at lights,
more shared cooking,
more baking with the kids,
more laughter with friends,
and more MOMENTS to make memories of, instead of material items.🎄💑
Stop the creation of busy and start creating time for your moments, your memories, your LIFE. ❤✌
