Let us keep Christmas beautiful without a thought of greed!
Another year, another Christmas! Merry Christmas 2019 to you all!
Though it’s a day I always know is coming, I never seem quite mentally prepared for it! Each year I promise myself to change my outlook surrounding the most anticipated day of the year, yet I always feel like a bah humbug. I know, I know, it’s a matter changing my mindset. I’ve always said that once I started my own family, circumstances might be different; I might just actually feel the holiday cheer and spirit. I’m optimistic that it’ll happen, but this year was undeniably tough and when I ponder Christmas, I more so hoped the hours jetted on by….
This year I learned the meaning of ambiguous grief, meaning feeling a loss for a person/people who are not deceased but removed from your life. The holidays as a result of these situational circumstances amplified my sadness and grief. I know all too well that life happens, and countless times I’ve learned to roll with the punches, but I somethings I guess I’ll never understand, some things just aren’t meant to.
I did towards the end of the day, I snap out of the blah space and acknowledge the day. I also wrote an intention to not allow myself, regardless of where I am in the world or what I am feeling, to have another bahhh humbug Christmas Day. Though life isn’t picture-perfect and people come and they go, I owe it to myself to begin creating my own holiday traditions and even if that looks something like throwing a solo shindig, just to celebrate Jesus, then so be it!
I do realize that no matter wherever you are in life, it’s still a gift. What I am most consistent with every year is making sure I do my part. Greed is not a familiar characteristic to me anyway, but I do want to encourage that we continue making Christmas beautiful through love and good deeds! What is life without it?
Peace and Forever Blessings,
