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 write some version of this post every year, and just like always, it’s just as much for me as for anyone who may read it.
Here we are, less than two weeks out from Christmas. Things tend to start to get a little hectic around this time, so I wanted to drop in with my yearly reminder for you to slow down and savor.
‘Tis the season for gifts and parties and lots of plans, yes. It’s also the season for joy and gratitude and wonder. Don’t lose those last three because you’re so caught up in the first three.
Joy and gratitude and wonder are all free, but you have to look for them. And, in my personal experience, it’s a lot harder to find them if you’re running around at light speed trying to do all the things.
So this week, slow the heck down for a minute or two and just savor the good things around you. Listen to your favorite Christmas music. Actually look at the Christmas lights in your neighborhood instead of just rushing to get home so you can rush to the next thing. Don’t run yourself so ragged that you arrive at Christmas day exhausted and stressed over how much money you’ve spent. That’s no way to start the new year.
This time of year is beautiful and special for so many reasons other than what you can buy or what you have to do. So don’t miss that!
Have the best day today. Do yourself a favor and savor the week, okay? Love you, mean it.
