How is everyone doing? I hope you all are feeling ok and if you are not remember it is ok not to be ok. Finally broke up from work and ready to push forward with celebrating the holidays! I am not going to lie came home after work and had a couple of gin and tonics, as why the hell not! So I am feeling a bit more after of the storm and I think I am over the worse of it now so fingers crossed things will only get better. Todays post is really late so sorry but went to get a few things from the supermarket and took longer then I thought it would.
Blogmas Day 22 – don’t just put a bow on things!
I am starting to feel my Christmas spirit rise a bit more today and no it is not down to the alcohol. I think now I have broken up from work I can now concentrate on things I couldn’t put 100% thought process into, so my self care is back on track a bit more.
So today I am doing another Christmas tip – don’t just put a bow on things
Sometimes we can just put a smile on or say we are ok when we are not for the sake of not upsetting other people, especially around this time of year. We just wrap ourselves up in Christmas paper and put on a bow on top and act like everything is ok.
Don’t push your need aside over the Christmas period it is important to remember you matter as much as someone else’s Christmas. It is easy to throw self care out the window as many distractions out there and then we can end up back to square one after Christmas and undo a lot of work and recovery. So remember yes enjoy yourself but don’t suffer for the sake of others. Christmas is about everyone including you.
Until tomorrow people!
Take care all
