I figured out that the magic is all in my mindset. With everything really, but here I’m talking the holiday season. I used to take the holiday season sooooo seriously. We celebrate Christmas and Yule in our home. Everything had to be perfection. We went into debt buying gifts (which made the new year super stressful). When company came over I would stress myself out and be exhausted trying to make everything perfect, to the point I forgot to enjoy the moments with the company that came to see us. So this year I am setting some Holiday intentions to keep myself present and maybe, just maybe I will be less stressed and enjoy the season I love so much, even more!
Slow down and savor the moments.
Take time for self care.
Have gratitude even in small things.
Take time to log off
Take time and reflect on the past year and what I want different in the new year.
Create a new year bullet list of intentions, visions and goals.
Have a weekly date night with my hubby.
Create a new holiday tradition with my hubby. In Iceland they exchange books in the days before Christmas and spend Christmas Eve reading them and eating chocolate.
Set an example to others.
Make Amends. Apologize. And Forgive.
