Christmas is slow in coming this year….well, not really. It’s quickly approaching, and I’m not even close to being ready!
Travel and sickness have given me an extra little challenge this year in preparing for Christmas. I mean after all, I have family coming to stay, a house to clean, food to cook, presents to buy, presents to wrap, etc….
I’m trying desperately not to let it overwhelm me, stress me, or discourage me. Of course, there’s still that little bit of me, that wants it to be “the perfect Christmas” for everyone.
I know I can’t make this happen. I can’t make “perfect happen.” I know I shouldn’t even consider trying.
I know I should just concentrate on the people in my life, and not the things.
Trying with all my might to keep focused on this…simply.
Trying with all my might to stay focused on “love” at Christmas…and the giving of love.
Something that is so much better than any gift I could ever buy.
(Oh, I’ll work on getting some gifts too! I mean after all, I still have a few days left, right?!)
Focus on the reason for the season, my friend. Your family is blessed to have you, you are enough. XO
I did my best…thank you so much for the kind words of encouragement. It meant a lot, and you are most certainly correct! 🙂 Thanks again!
Society pressures us to be perfect and we keep trying until we stress ourselves out. It is impossible to be perfect in an imperfect world. I used to drive myself crazy trying to be a perfectionist. We just have to be the best imperfect person we can be and do the best we can. Merry Christmas!
You are so correct. Every year I seem to manage it a little better, so I think I may just have it figured out! 🙂 I hope you had a Merry Christmas – mine was “imperfectly perfect” 🙂 Thanks for your kindness! Hope you have a blessed New Year! 🙂
Merry Christmas, my friend!!
All the best to you and your loved ones in Year 2014! Cheers~ 😀
Thank you so much! I’m a little late with the Christmas wishes, but I do hope that your New Year is full of wonderful moments! Cheers to you too! 🙂
No worries, my friend!
Thank you so much for your lovely blessings and do have a blessed Year 2014~ Cheers!! 😀
