It’s the most wonderful time of the year!

So I am a wee bit delayed on the blogging front, and I am aware that Christmas was 2 days ago – and wasn’t it wonderful?! Christmas has always been my favourite time of year. For those of you who don’t know, I am a December baby…but most often than not I forget that my birthday is approaching because I am thinking about CHRISTMAS! The carols, the trees, the decorations, the food, the people, the joy, the laughter. There is just this magic that is around Christmas time.

I also find that Christmas evokes a feeling of nostalgia. Where you reminisce of a time where you were so excited in the lead up to Christmas. The thought that you had made it onto Santa’s Nice List. On Christmas Eve carefully placing out a glass of milk, a cookie and a carrot for the reindeer. So excited that falling asleep seemed impossible, and that you actually believed that you heard the jingle of Santa’s bells and the sleigh landing on the roof. Then on the day of Christmas, waking up super duper early to open the gifts that had been left in the stocking and underneath the tree. Spending the day playing, being with family and eating. There is nothing quite like the excitement a child feels at Christmas time.

How about as an adult? I still love Christmas. I still get excited about it. However the excitement is for different reasons. I get excited to see the excitement of my nieces. I remember exactly how that feels, and in turn their excitement is infectious, and you can’t help but to be excited too! Then there is just spending time with the family. That is the most beautiful part. Being in each other’s company. No where else to be, no where else to rush off to. To just be together and appreciate one another.

In my next blog I will be focusing on gratitude and the year that has been 2017. Ever since I was a teenager I have always spent the final days of the year reflecting on the year that has been, and what I hope to manifest in the following year.

Stay tuned.
