(Think Positive Monday: sharing tips and keeping me in line to live a happier and more positive life)
The phrase, “Make Time For Christmas” sounds a little odd.
Why do I need to “make time” for Christmas when the Christmas season is banging on our door the minute after Halloween ends? I’ve been shopping, prepping, decorating, singing Christmas songs, and baking all season long. Christmas is everywhere. I don’t need to “make time” for it, I’m living it every second.
Yes Christmas is everywhere. And as much as I love this season I sometimes catch myself just going through the motions. Sometimes treating traditions like another thing to check of my ever-growing to do list. Before you know it, Christmas day is upon us and over in a blink of an eye. Pretty soon all the decorations are coming down and music goes back to our regular non festive favorites and we’re stuck with Winter blues.
I think one of the most fun things about Christmas is the preparation.
It’s easy to get caught up in the rush and busyness and forget to actually enjoy the little things that makes this holiday so special. The little things ARE the big things and I think that can often get lost in this overwhelming time of year.
So I’ll be signing off the blog for the rest of the week to truly enjoy Christmas. You can always follow along on instagram.
My brother and his wife arrive tomorrow and we have a full week of fun and love with my family and Ryan’s family and friends. It truly is the most wonderful time of the year.
I wish you and yours a very Happy Holiday Season, however which way you celebrate!
