christmas is such a magical time of year. a return to childhood and the magic that surrounds flickering lights and grasping tight to the dream of a white christmas.
looking ahead, i am choosing to not get stuck in the slump that often comes post-christmas. i am living in the magic and light that upholds this wondrous season. it is so easy to transition from the splendor of the holidays to a gray, sleepy winter. but, we always have the power to choose perspective. and this year, i am choosing to look for the good.
as the year draws to a close next week, i've been pondering 2013 and what i hope will come from the year ahead. more than ever, i want to suck the marrow out of each day. this year has taught me (time and time again) to never take a moment for granted, but simultaneously, to not get caught up in the drama or ho-drum of every day nonsense. it is easy to do - and believe me - i am in no way perfect, but i am going to try really hard to enjoy every last second, because really, no moment is ordinary.
this year, i hope to get lost and not be held back by the "could-be consequences". often the most magical things arise by just letting go.
all these things and more are buzzing around in my post-christmas mind. they are making me feel cozy and warm and inspired. all of this time surrounded by family and love is just the cherry on top. feeling so blessed, and wishing the same for you - and so much more. xo
