December Goals

Can I shoot y'all straight? My only goal for this month is to be present with my family and friends and enjoy this holiday season with them. The next few weeks for us are FULL of celebrations and I wouldn't have it any other day. This is what I live for. We will be celebrating the joy of the coming of the light of Christ through the jolly and sweet celebrations of Christmas!! I'll share as these things unfold and hope that y'all can all squeeze in some sweet time celebrating this season. I can think of Christmas holidays where I was lonely or struggling, and it can be really hard. If you're flying solo, reach out to a close friend and y'all decorate a gingerbread house or whatever! I think these sweet, tiny things offer glimpses into the hope ahead.

  1. Yes to weeks packed full of celebration! This is the time for it, and though it can get a little crazy, it's all such good stuff that I don't mind. I find that being present at each individual event instead of thinking about what's next makes everything seem less chaotic!

  2. I only gave myself a couple goals for this month so I can focus on being present too. And one of them is to celebrate Advent well. ;) Here's to a purposeful December!
