As the weather cools, the snow falls, and the smell of winter permeates the air – the fairy tale feeling of the holiday season sets in for me.
And I take into account what I’m thankful for this year, and everything in my life that makes me happy, gives me joy, and fills me with love.
I suppose it’s the same for most of you out there: the thought of my mother happy with all her children and children-in-law around her, my sisters in their full lives, my brother enjoying the solitude of the outdoors, my father calming down, the thought of the smile on my partners face when he walks in the door and I’m sitting there in the condo we just bought with our newly adopted kitten, and a round of drinks with new and old friends.
Nothing that makes me happy has anything to do with the material items I own, and I’m sure for 90% of you, it’s the same.
So take a moment, take a breath, and enjoy the season. Enjoy your friends, your family, your person, and your animals. Don’t stress about all the presents you need to buy, because in reality, you don’t need to buy anything. The holidays should be about happiness and the things in our life that bring us joy; not filled with stress about money and objects.
Take a moment, soak it all in, breathe, & enjoy it
Happy Holidays to you and yours!
