Merry Christmas Eve Eve! My cold from last week is still lingering, and Christmas Day will be two weeks since I started feeling under the weather. I’m kicking myself now because if I had just laid low this past weekend maybe it would be gone by now…instead I visited with friends who are home from the holidays, celebrated an engagement, and took an ill-advised nap after work on Monday, which resulted in in not sleeping last night. I’m in the middle of a lack of Christmas cheer mixed with a little FOMO (fear of missing out) and the aforementioned sickness. I’m sure it will turn around, especially once it actually is Christmas (the build up to the holiday is what actually gets me down). I felt it was important to share these feelings in case there were others that feel like something is “wrong” that they aren’t baking cookies, revealing in love, or celebrating in some other fabulous way.
If you are baking cookies, revealing in love, and being fabulous, good for you! I would never want to rob you of your joy. My official last Peace Perspective will be up on Sunday, but this photo find from Pinterest also needed to be shared. No matter what your tradition is, or what new tradition you start, I hope you have a Merry Little Christmas. There doesn’t need to be tons of people, treats, or presents. Sometimes its good to just enjoy the quiet.
