What I'm Learning
Hi, I'm Chelsea! I’m on a mission to help you find joy and goodness in every day.
On this blog we talk about the big things (like chasing dreams) and the small things (like what books we're reading) because happiness comes in all sizes.
I hope that this Christmas is one of your best yet. I hope that you spend this next week surrounded by people who love you fiercely. If you can’t, I hope that memories of those people hug you tightly this week.
I hope that you take time to remember what this season is really all about. I hope that if you haven’t really been celebrating this season, that you celebrate to the fullest this week.
I hope you allow some of the wonder and curiosity left over from childhood to shine through this week. I hope you allow yourself to believe that there’s some magic left in the world, even if it’s just for this week.
I hope that you choose to not let stress weigh you down, no matter how many presents you have to wrap, no matter how many miles you have to travel.
I hope that if this Christmas is hard for you this year because of someone you lost in 2014, that you tell someone. I hope that you choose joy over grief and precious memories over tears.
I hope that you give back this Christmas. Whether it’s with your time or your money, whether it’s food or a smile, I hope that you get to experience the joy of giving.
I hope that you make this Christmas special for you. I hope you don’t let the pressure of the expectations of others change what you do this week. I hope you spend your time how you want to spend your time, that you see the people you want to see, and that you avoid all adult responsibility as much as possible.
I hope that your Christmas is filled with all things merry and bright, with love and joy and magic, with glitter and confetti and wrapping paper with your favorite forest animal on it.
I hope that you laugh at Will Ferrel parading around Central Park in yellow tights, that you tear up a little when Linus reads the Christmas story, and that you fall asleep each night warm, happy, and full of magic in the glow of a Christmas tree.
I hope that this Christmas is magical for you. I hope it goes down in the books as one to remember. Merry, merry Christmas, you beautiful soul.
