Because of my blog post yesterday, I gained the courage I needed to speak up. That’s truly the benefit of writing in this blog, it helps me work out what I’m thinking in my head and be able to come to others with a clear message. 🙂
Today, I’m feeling a bit better about things. I woke up this morning and it was as if something clicked. I don’t want to be mopey any more. The christmas season is here! It’s time to water the grass on my side of the fence and just enjoy life! Sure work is stressful – but I’ll be damned if I’m going to let any of that take away from my favorite time of year.
I want to bake cookies. I want to go see xmas lights. I want to sing carols and wrap presents. I want to give gifts and be thoroughly spoiled in return. I want to bundle up near a bon fire and drink hot cocoa with a little kahluha in it and watch the xmas ships drift by listening to some good jazz music.
I want to revel in what I love about this time of year. The quiet moments, when snow is falling and the world goes still. The crazy chaotic moments, when the kids all wake up on christmas morning and there’s music and laughter and exclamations of surprise over gifts they weren’t expecting. It’s the time of year that I am more aware of how good I have it. When I will randomly hand out a $10 or $20 bill to homeless folks I see on my commute every day.
It’s the one time of the year when I just want to give to everyone I see – and make sure that they have enough. That they are warm, fed, and loved.
Why? Because …. it’s the most wonderful time of the year. 🙂 Damn it! 😀
Much love to all of you in neverland.
