Everyone gets all excited around Christmas. Thanks to advertising on T.V. and in stores its not hard to forget whats important about the holidays…your family.
My family is bigger this year by two cute little baby girls. Due to this we are restructuring our Christmas traditions which has given me a good amount to think about.
I did not really know what I was expecting to do for Christmas this year. What I wanted the most is time with my family, my puppies, and my husband’s family.
As you get older Christmas becomes less about the presents and more about the people in your lives. Sure you might have to drive all over to see your family and your significant others family. But its worth it!
When I think of Christmas I do not focus on what awesome presents I got one year or another. In all honestly, I could not even remember the presents as much as the feeling I got. When you are all gathered in the living room, the energy in the air is filled with excitement, and you are just enjoying the process of giving and receiving. It creates such a wholesome feeling that I believe people associate that with the presents.
But it’s not! It’s about the laughter, joy, and love that you are sharing with the people most close to you. The ones who have been with you from the beginning! The energy boosts your soul and makes you feel connected 🙂 Its worth so much more than the lump of material you are unwrapping.
So while your family is enjoying this Christmas make sure to take time to breath and focus on how wonderful you are feeling! The Holiday’s are about being with the people you love 🙂 Hug them tighter, love them more, and make sure to tell them how much they mean to you!
