As December becomes a reality, and Christmas creeps up on us faster than we can believe, I'm trying to take time to savor these moments. Every year I feel like Christmas flies by faster, and especially now with this additional part-time job, I don't want to get so caught up in the work that I can't enjoy the beauty; that I don't focus on the real reason we celebrate!
Today I'm especially grateful to announce that I was accepted into my dream school, and will be attending in the fall of 2017! And receiving the letter made me stop and think, my life is pretty great. I could complain about being at work for 10 hours one day, or I could be grateful for the time I had off on Sunday, to spend with my family, to read, to watch Gilmore Girls by the Christmas tree with a cup of apple cider. It's perspective.
And with this concrete goal of school next year to work towards, I've got fresh wind in my sails; I'm so crazy excited about all the possibility 2017 is going to hold! (Am I getting too far ahead? New Years will be here before we know it!)
Today I'm choosing to focus on the good.
What's making your heart happy today?
