Whew, what a year!
I’m currently writing this on my first day off for the holidays, sitting at the table in our living room, our Christmas tree to the right of me. It’s such a relief to finally have some time (and a clear head) to sit down and write again on my blog.
I remember when I was younger, for Christmas our class would have to write a piece on “What Christmas Means to Me” and it would be published in the local newspaper. There were always some funny responses to read and ones that had a deeper meaning, kids wise beyond their years.
For this year – what does Christmas mean to me?
At the moment, it means rest from a busy few months at my job. A break where I can sit and read books, do more creative things and not feel as worn out. A time to reflect and find peace.
Peace is what I am looking for most this Christmas season.
In a world where it feels like that is the complete opposite, it can feel a bit overwhelming. My mental health this year has been a rollercoaster, as I’m sure it has been for many of you reading this. Too many ups and downs, it would be nice to have some stability.
That’s why from Christmas and into the New Year, I’m going to be doing some “reclaiming”. Reclaiming back my creativity and drive to do the things I love (like writing on here!). Reclaiming the mindset that I know what is best for me.
I hope whatever you are feeling at this time of year, you will find peace.
Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays to you and yours.
