Searching madly for my Christmas spirit at the moment🎄 ✨
It seems to have gone missing this year. I can’t quite put my finger on why exactly 💁🏻♀️
I think a big part of it is that christmas doesn’t just happen on its own. Gifts don’t just magically appear, cards don’t write themselves, the festive food doesn’t whip itself up. Sure, we don’t have to purchase and give gifts, write cards, cook food or go to events.. but i sort of enjoy those things all the while dislike organising it all! Of course I put that pressure on myself because it’s what I grew up with.. that’s how things “should” be done.. There are extra events to attend which I love but at the same time the introvert in me is exhausted by extra events on my calendar... I mean I can barely survive doing the basics and keeping the kids alive and well 🤣
This year I actually feel like I could just ditch Christmas and proceed straight to the three week holiday by the beach we have planned ☀️ So, please.. if anyone has any surplus Christmas spirit.. please sprinkle some my way.. lord knows i need it!
Disclaimer - I know that there are so many who have it way worse than me and Christmas an be a difficult time for many. Like the homeless man i saw@at the park today with His shanti house set up. This is just my truth at present and doing what i can to find “the joy”. Now.. to go an make some magic happen with these elves. Every damn night I forget them 🤣
