Christmas time has always been my favorite time of year.
As we prepare to celebrate the birth of Jesus, the atmosphere is always filled with so much love! People seem to be a little nicer, the cold seems to be a little more manageable, and the coming of snow is a little more desirable. It’s a scene of beauty the entire month of December. It is a time to let go of whatever hurt you this year, toast to whatever made you smile, and reflect on all the lessons learned. It’s truly an amazing time.
Yet somehow…I am not excited about this holiday season. I don’t know whether it’s the absence of my family’s presence or how hectic my schedule seems to be, but it just doesn’t feel the same this year.
I have been trying to watch Christmas movies and listen to the Jackson 5 Christmas selection, but nothing seems to be working. It is quite disheartening that I am not able to enjoy the time of year I look forward to the most.
I leave for my home state Christmas Eve. Maybe I’ll feel better once I am able to connect with my parents.
Please feel free to leave comments and suggestions on what I could do to cheer myself up and get into the Christmas mood! 🙂
