Why I LOVE Christmas!
The beginning of December in our home, is traditionally dedicated to the end of year dance concerts & celebrating the end of the school year, so as you can probably imagine our calendar is generally quite FULL with school & dance performances & we also have the added bonus of celebrating the majority of our family birthdays at this time of year.
Sure I could waffle on about the craziness which traditionally surrounds us at this time, but rather than jump on this revolving roundabout of craziness, I prefer to set the intention to be patient & kind with myself during this time & if I do find myself forgetting to be mindful, which has been known to happen, I gently remind myself of my intention & bring my focus back to my mindfulness practice. So, I absolutely love when Christmas time rolls around & all our end of year obligations have been met, because it is always a beautiful reminder of what is TRULLY important in MY life.
