Creating your own holiday magic

Merry Christmas friend!

While December is the most magical and wonderful time of the year, this season can also bring stress, overindulge, drama, worry, sadness, longing and sorrow. 2020 has been a year of impact. We have all experienced shifts, some individually, many as a collective. This holiday season will look different for many of us but different doesn’t have to mean bad. Actually, change can be a great thing if we approach it with an optimistic mindset. We’ll work with what we’ve got because 𝕒𝕝𝕝 𝕨𝕖 𝕙𝕒𝕧𝕖, 𝕚𝕤 𝕒𝕝𝕝 𝕨𝕖 𝕟𝕖𝕖𝕕. With a new year just days away, now is a great time to really think about what brings you joy during the holidays and then focus on doing more of that. Sometimes we fall into routines and we forget to even question them- we just do. We go where we are expected, we do what’s expected and it’s easy to lose sight of the reason for the season within our multitasking agendas. As a mom, I understand the deep desire to make everything perfect- from the decorations to the gifts right down to the each crafted memory, but in creating all that perfection I often lost touch of the meaning behind it all. I wasn’t doing it with love, I was doing to do. Doing to do rarely brings us desired results. So this holiday season instead of doing for the sake of doing and going for the sake of going, instead of overspending on things to try to make up for all of 2020’s weirdness, consider shifting your awareness to creating your own holiday magic.

Be present. Indulge in the moments that will make beautiful memories. Create your own holiday magic.

This evening after dinner we drove around to look at Christmas lights. It made me smile and reminded me that beauty can be found in the simplest of things, like a strangers Christmas lights.
