As many of us do, I love the holidays. There’s something about the weather, family time and Christmas music playing everywhere, oh and lets not forget the FOOD. What I also love about this time is that it shows us how fast time passes by and reminds us to slow down-to live every moment to the fullest and dedicate the remaining of the year to those you love. There are so many things I am personally grateful for which honestly I don’t really want to list here because the list is endless and I might forget something as I am writing this now. However, one of the things that I continue to strive for is to be intentional with my time. It is not always easy especially with everything I have going on but it so important. My husband is so much better at this than me when it comes to our daughter and I love that he challenges me daily to be the best mom I can be. By challenging me I mean by example. I tend to be a perfectionist and as mentioned in a previous post I am a common over commitment offender. However, I am happy to report that I have become a lot better at this and have learned the power of saying no. Honestly, saying no is so important to not only keep your sanity but for your overall happiness. It comes down to what I mentioned at the beginning- intentionality with your time. Don’t focus on what you didn’t get done today; that your house is a mess that you were late to a dinner etc. focus 100% on what you are doing in the present moment without distractions. It is hard but it is one of the best gifts you can give to yourself and those who are around you.
May you all have a Happy Thanksgiving surrounded by LOVE. I leave you here with one of my favorite looks this season. I love the color of this sweater, not only is it warm but extremely affordable. 😉
