Before I go any further I have to do this…………
I kind of like saying hello to a new month and I obviously have not took the time to do that! Can you believe we only have 21 days till Christmas?!!?!?
My shopping list is small and I haven’t put up my tree yet. Or decorated the house. Or sent out a Christmas card. I still have 21 days right?
I don’t know where my head has been but Since Thanksgiving time has flown by! I’ve had to motivate myself to get things done. It’s not a lack of wanting to do them it’s more of a procrastination thing. There’s always tomorrow, right?
If you been by my Facebook page you’ll notice an increase in motivation posters, it’s because we all need it. We have to constantly motivate and refresh ourselves on why we do what we do. I do what I do because I owe it to my health and I enjoy it. However, as a working adult life does tend to take over. Work, community activities, holidays, family life, etc…..that list could go on and on. It’s up to me (and me alone) to put myself in an environment that’s positive and motivating. Even if it’s subscribing to positive Facebook pages, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, friends, family (yes there are positives and negatives, you can pick). What you read, see and hear. It’s like I always tell my 9 year old SaSa (family friend) “be careful what you see because you can’t unsee it.” That’s true for a lot of things.
I even take time to sit down with my Bible for quiet time. I have to carve out that time because I need to stay connected and grounded when the world gets hectic. It is so SO important. It’s easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of the holidays but taking time to be still and be quiet makes a huge impact on your life. For me, sitting down to read, meditate/marinate on the Word reminds me that there’s so much more than all of this. Kind of like don’t sweat the small stuff.
So as these next hectic couple of weeks come and go you may see more motivational type material around me. If so, I’m doing it for both of us. Enjoy this time of year. Make plans, dream, wish and hope and enjoy it. End the end, that’s what it’s all about.
