Hello dears, it’s the holiday season again and pretty soon a BRAND NEW year! Can you believe it? Because I hardly can!
It feels just like a few short months ago we were preparing for a different kind of holiday season, one we had never seen before and yet a full 12 months have gone by. While things feel like they’re back to normal, which is amazing and such a different feeling from what we had last year – it’s also INCREDIBLY EXHAUSTING!
Holiday Season 2020 was spent at HOME. No one was going anywhere! In fact, this time last year half of the world was still in lockdown. Holiday Season 2021 has seen a return of events, parties, festivities and crowds are back in the malls and stores as if we aren’t technically still in a pandemic. It makes me so happy that we are choosing to continue living life even with the circumstances.
However, taking a year off has me rusty. And not just rusty, it takes way more energy for holiday parties, dinners, events and festivities after having NOTHING at all this time last year.
Important reminders for Holiday Season 2021:
- Perfection does not exist! Always strive to try YOUR best
- How much I can complete or check off my to-do list does not determine my worth
- Be intentional! With your time, who you spend it with & when giving gifts
- Not everyone deserves access to you, be protective of your energy
- Take time to slow down and enjoy the festive spirit around you
This year, if it feels REALLY hard even if you’re SO thankful for a ‘normal’ holiday season and being able to spend it with family & friends – please don’t be hard on yourself! And at the same time, if you’re anxious (since we’re still in a pandemic) and it exhausts you to decide what you should do – remember to honor yourself & don’t be hard on yourself whatever your decision!
And the best Present for under your tree this year –
Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery.
Today is a Gift, which is why we call it the Present ❤️🎁
Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays from my family to yours,
