“Christmas, my child, is love in action. Every time we love, every time we give, it’s Christmas.” ~ Dale Evans
Is it to early?
Hi friends! Taking a break from NaNoWriMo for some Christmas Cheer! Whaaaa? I know! You are thinking seriously? It is only November third! (I already heard it on Insta friends, haters gonna hate.) but since Hallmark has been playing Christmas movies for over two weeks and it IS 2020, I am ready for some Christmas cheer. Christmas always brings me so much joy, and especially now, when the world around us is so volatile it is important to focus on the good. ON the warm and fuzzy.
Don’t get me wrong, I am not saying to stick your head in the sand, (I do know what today is, and yes I AM doing my civic duty) but when you are constantly focusing on the negative. Consuming any and all negative thoughts and actions, life is going to seem and look pretty dismal. I am not a half empty kinda gal, which is why my Christmas tree went up on Sunday.
Is it REALLY?
Yay! Technically it went up a week ago Tuesday, but we decorated it on Sunday with the kiddos. And friends let me tell you it makes everything so much more cheerful and warm! Especially since we turned the clocks back on Halloween (boooo, literally) and it feels like the polar vortex has descended upon us yesterday and today, AND we got snow BEFORE Halloween. I will admit I am NOT ready for the cold weather!
SO no friends it is NOT to early. And it is bringing me a helluva lot of joy. And like I said, THAT is never a bad thing! SO bring on the holly jolly cheer!
Baby I am back
I am super excited because I will be participating for the second time in Blogmas! I say this and will probably jinx myself, but I feel like I have gotten my blogging mojo back somewhat. It has been a struggle since long before I left New York coming up with a consistent schedule, and just feeling inspired. I think I was honestly feeling burnt out. Which might sound surprising, but social media is also my day job, and it hasn’t always been a fun place to be around of late.
And while I cannot control the negativity or what other people say or post, I can control my little sliver of the cyber world, and bring joy and positivity, realistically and authentically, because guys I am NOT going to be positive about single digit temps….Ever. It is all about baby steps, y’all, baby steps, and I think, I have finally gotten my blogging mojo back, an early Christmas miracle! (to soon?)
