This year, I like December. That's a new thing. My goal was to enjoy the holidays and I'm glad my plan is working. We have a busy weekend ahead, but I'm not anxious or stressed about it or how fast Christmas day is approaching. The decorating is finished, the shopping mostly done. I'm exercising, eating well and trying to get at least 8 hours of sleep a night. I'm only making one gift and, although I haven't finished yet, I've enjoyed working on it and knowing that I can take my time and savor the process. The holiday cards have been here for weeks, but I won't get to addressing them until Wednesday or so. And I am ok with that. To make things even sweeter, there were peonies at Whole Foods today. I splurged and I'm ok with that, too.
There is so much goodness surrounding me. I am so thankful that I took the steps to slow down and enjoy the season.
So, yes, all is calm.
And all is bright.
