Well folks, Christmas is officially here! I honestly can’t even believe it. I spent the past few days wrapping presents, finishing up cookies, and spending a little time relaxing. I’ve been a slight scrooge the past few weeks and I’m not exactly sure why. I suppose the magic of Christmas seems to fade a bit every year I get a little older. The stress of the holiday seems a little bit more prevalent than the cheer. If someone would have told me this early, I would have insisted on not growing up. Anyone else feel this way this time of year?
I have been wonderfully blessed over the passed year and even more so over the past month. Unfortunately, I seem to be carrying around this heavy weight that I just can’t seem to shake. I’ve always had this way of focusing on all the bad or worrisome things instead of the good. Kind of a bummer, right? Sorry, I know this is not what you want to be reading on Christmas Eve.
Anyway, what I’m trying to say is that I’m going to spend the next week away from the computer, a little holiday blog-cation. I’ve been chugging along pretty steady since January and just want and need a little time to figure out how I can have a truly happy New Year. It seems like 2013 is a great time to stop worrying so much and put a little happy back into life.
With all of that being said, I will see you in the New Year. Wishing you all the peace, happiness, and love that your hearts can hold this holiday season! Merry, merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
