Love is the thing that makes everything else worthwhile. It’s easy to get wrapped up in the Christmas rush and that frenzy can even be part of the fun. Dizzy with excitement and plans it’s easy to let go of the consistency that good strong habits form – but that’s ok because this is a two-day affair and my goal is to just enjoy it and to practice mindfulness and gratitude.
Take it from Bing and Rosemary, whatever your plans or goals, count your blessings. As I think about it there are many. Christmas Eve and family are synonymous and I am so grateful. Spending Christmas Eve together is a tradition that is like an anchor that keeps me close to who I am and who I strive to be. Shared history, generous, loving, funny, encouragement, believe these are all words that adorn the word family for me.
These are the words that shape my inner thoughts about who I am and what I can achieve. What words are shaping your inner thoughts? If you celebrate the holiday, don’t worry so much about overindulging. Make happy memories and have a good time. Be mindful and selective about the food but don’t let any worries about it distract from the experiences.
Love is the gift that matters most.
