There is something about the holidays this year. I feel so incredibly warm and fuzzy about them. I have this soothing magical feeling that I can close my eyes and access. It is wonderful.
This four month (or so) time-frame is reminding me to take it easy- enjoy. Cherish the people in my life… those who help me find well-being. Those who induce the magical feeling.
While decorating for Christmas today, I smiled as I unwrapped the ornament pictured below.
Susan and me, in 5th grade. It was actually Christmastime. Susan had turned eleven three months prior, I was about to. This was the year that an amazing bond was formed between us, and that bond is now nineteen years-old.
Putting this decoration on my tree gave me that magical feeling I have been enjoying so much as of late. I am trying to hold on to those moments where I “get it” and I see the big picture. Yes, money sucks… and yes, I walk a fine line with my health… but those things can hold too much power, if allowed- and they can drain a person’s energy. The beautiful people, moments, and connections we get to experience in this life should be allowed to replenish our energy.
… Warm and fuzzy is something money can’t buy and soothes any ache.
Susan, thank you for keeping me focused on the beauty.
