Christmas Calm

I’ve been feeling very tired of late.

Actually come to think of it, I’ve never really recovered since my Europe trip in October.

Neither have I caught up with work, house chores nor life in general since.

And whenever I seem to have a window of time, I seem to want to prioritise spending time with the kids.

Which in itself is not a bad thing, but everything else seems to be calling out to me…

  • The overflowing laundry basket
  • The mountain of paperwork on my office table
  • The Oculus Rift
  • The withering garden plants
  • My flabby belly begging that I do some exercise…any exercise

There’s just so much to do. I feel like I’m drowning.

And with Christmas just round the corner, there seem to be this immense pressure on my chest.

A Friend just asked me during our lunch together if I’m planning a Christmas Party this weekend. (For the past couple of years, I’ve been doing a rather EPIC job at my Christmas Parties).

A light bulb turned on. Bing!

I told him that I’d be toning it down this year into a simple Christmas picnic instead…a Potluck!

This holiday season, I’m going to slow down. I’m going to breathe and just enjoy the moment with my family and friends.

A calm and peaceful Christmas.

“Peace on Earth, Goodwill towards men.”

Merry Christmas!
