I feel like December is a sprint to the finish line. And I’m tired of hearing how I should slow down and focus on the reason for the season. I think we all know what we need to do this month and we should all just get on with it as cheerfully as possible.
Being thankful was last month’s problem.
We don’t have to do that anymore.
This month we are supposed to focus on being cheerful. Holly and Jolly. Merry and Bright. Silver and Gold.
So let’s do it. Let’s go to three different children’s school performances all in one day with a smile on our faces. Or go to those three Christmas/Hanukkah parties in seven days wearing a bright and happy Christmas sweater. (Do they have Hanukkah sweaters? Christmas has plenty of ugly ones to cover all denominations so maybe that was seen as being enough.) Let’s spend more than the suggested budget for our coworker secret Santa. And laugh merrily as our kids switch their entire Santa list on December 23rd.
Come on everybody! Let’s get going in the festivities.
We will have all the time we need to relax in February after we spend January trying to improve ourselves and lose weight.
Now is not the time to slow down and enjoy.
Now is the time to buy a box of chocolates and hide it in your underwear drawer so you can sneak a piece before every celebration!
I may not be found consistently on this site this month but when I am you will know it will be with a smile on my face and a box of Sees chocolates in my hand.
And if all else fails, I’ll see you at the gym in January.
