Calm Down and Enjoy Christmas

Does the thought of Christmas really stress you out? Do you get all jittery about getting the right gifts and worry about Christmas dinner for fear of those family members you’d rather not see ?

I know it’s not as easy as it sounds but today I shopped and didn’t buy any fancy gifts. I bought simple gifts that I’m certain my daughter will love and I don’t know yet what we’re having for Christmas dinner but I reckon it won’t be fish and chips.

And what if we are because I’ve spent all my time wrapping chocolates? Then I know I’ll be eating it with the two people I love most in the World and we’ll all be happy. Could be better but so many people would give up their riches to just sit with people they love at Christmas. Let’s be grateful.

Calm down. Relax and enjoy Christmas. I’ve calmed down today even though I still have gifts to buy and can’t tell how I’ll afford them. Yet, it will still be a very merry Christmas. Remember don’t stress.

Also, ditch the fear. Don’t run to the shops because you think everything will run out. Shop because you’d really like to buy your friends nice gifts they’d like. Do it with joy and love. Enjoy doing it.

Look for simple recipes if you’re cooking. Soak in the sights, sounds and aromas. Celebrate this Christmas like a child would. Go where you’re celebrated not tolerated and have a Merry Christmas.

      No problem Stacey. I think it’s great to remember those who don’t have all the priviledges we’ll have this Christmas like light and water yet will be happy. There’s more to life than gifts at Christmas.
