Yesterday, I had a case of the Christmas flu which I was surprised I had caught considering this year’s Christmas preparation has been relatively pretty easy. Caught it I did and I am a little disappointed that I allowed the Heat Miser of my shopping experience to get to me, but it did. So now I have to adjust. Give myself a break. I know in the past, that I made myself make that Christmas was a spectacular experience at my own expense. As I have gotten older and wiser, I make sure that I really focus on what Christmas truly means to me and how best can I genuinely share that with the most important people in my life. My decorations are a third of what they once were, I start shopping and decorating early and mindfully so that I have time to enjoy the season and be prepared for any snafus or illnesses that my creep up.
Yes, I did watch a Hallmark Christmas movie, had a cup of tea and peacefully enjoyed the lit Christmas tree and refocused my energy back to the simple and basic joy of the holiday season and acknowledging the people I love so dearly.
Many Christmas Blessings,
