It's hard to believe that December starts on Sunday. It feels as though this year has gone by so fast, but also that it has been so full of many wonderful things.
It's hard to even begin putting down all the wonderful times I've had this year, the places I've visited, people I've met, old friends I've caught up with... I know that I am blessed.
Recently though, I have not been focusing on those blessings and remembering them as they are. I have found that instead, I've been counting what I don't have, rather than what I do. And that is not how I want to live my life.
So I'm stepping back and taking a break.
This December I'm going to take a break from social media, from Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, blogs, and all of those things that make it so easy to compare your life with the lives of others. I'm going to instead focus on some of my favourite holidays - Advent and Christmas - and fully enjoy the joyful buzz of the season.
And so, this might be a bit early, but I wish all of you a wonderful holiday season, whatever holiday it is that you are celebrating, and I will see you again in the new year!
(PS. I will still be checking my email, so you can contact me that way if the fancy strikes you.)
