The only thing I want to do this December is to live life deeply in the here and now.
To let go of any expectations or plans and simply let things be what they will be.
To snuggle under a blanket with a good book and hot chocolate.
To treasure the time I have together with my family, knowing they are becoming fewer and farther as we all get older.
To watch the frost thaw each morning while huddled in front of the fire. To prioritise cake and cuddling loved ones.
To take my time with my morning cup of tea.
To put my phone down and stay focused on my own holiday season and not compare it to anyone else’s.
To embrace all the love and joy that’s surrounding me.
To listen deeply, talk mindfully, and laugh loudly.
To take deep breaths when things get too much and remind myself this is my Christmas to enjoy too.
To stop worrying about the future or the things that could have been, and instead focus on slowing down and pressing pause on all the magical moments, now more than ever. 🎄❄️
