As I write this blog post, instead of sitting in my usual spot, the office at home, I thought I would continue the festive mood by sitting by the Christmas tree with it’s beautiful twinkling lights whilst drinking a cup of tea and a mince pie. You cannot get more festive than this!
Christmas is a time of year conjures up a mixture of thoughts and feelings, it is also a season of familiarity, full of traditions and not to mention an endless to do list. Whilst most soak up the atmosphere of the festive season, one thing that people think of, yet often forget to do is reflect upon the year that we are about to leave behind; sometimes we just need to take stock amongst the overflowing preparations to organise ourselves for the fresh year that awaits.
Today’s post is particularly personal to me; it is often said that we can forgive and we don’t necessarily forget, well this I can relate to and is true. I can honestly say that this is one of the most difficult posts I have ever written, but I now feel strong enough to be able to finally talk about it.
When I was in my twenties, I met someone who influenced so many aspects of my life, some were for the better such as how I shaped my career; but others were not so good such as how relationships are not supposed to be.
“Do something today that your future self will thank you for”
A week today will be Christmas Day! I hope you are all prepared and ready for the festivities (I’m very disorganised this year so I still have last minute bits to shop for!)
When we spread messages of joy and positivity, we feel good but we also remind others of what joy feels like and it may just inspire others to do the same. It is these small acts of kindness that make a big difference.
Happy Sunday all!
We are only 9 days away from Christmas Day, I hope all of your festive preparations are going well and that you’re enjoying the build up to the big day.
When we are feeling frazzled in the build up to Christmas, sometimes it is good to just take some time to yourself, so today’s it is simply about being kinder to oursleves and making a little bit of me time.
“How do we change the world? One random act of kindness at a time.”
