The holidays are fast approaching and before we know it, another year will arrive. It is easy to get caught up in the flurry and the insanity of the season. Shopping, decorating, planning our feasts…the lists go on. It’s easy to get lost in the excitement.
It is this time of year I try to slow myself down. I can easily get overwhelmed in the chaos between work and the holiday season. I try to seek out those small moments which bring a smile to faces, my own and others. Sometimes it can be as small as holding a door for someone when their hands are full or dropping a couple dollars in the collection bin outside the store or just looking at my holiday decorations.
This year, I’m lucky enough to be able to step away from work for the Thanksgiving and Christmas weeks. It’s a first in many years where I will be taking such a break. I’m looking forward to picking up some of my favorite past times during this time of rest – decking the halls, binge watching holiday movies, and baking mostly.
If you follow my site, first of all, THANK YOU! I started this site December 22nd last year and am always amazed when someone takes a moment to like some of my creative works or follows my site. My followers surpassed 100 users this year which just leaves me in awe.
I’ll be continuing to post through the holiday season, but I hope you’ll all understand if I’m not here every day…but I’ll try.
As we embark on the coming weeks, may you find ways to focus on the joy of the holidays and find happiness this season!
