Wednesday how are we?! Boy, does it feel good to be back. I know the blog posts have been a little far a few between lately, and I apologize for that. Like all of you, I am human and sometimes life just gets the best of us. It’s one thing after the other and then you wake up and you realize you lose sight of some of the things you love doing, writing this blog is one of my favorite things I do. So I am so excited to be back on track with all of you. I thought that because we are all struggling right now with finding just enough time during the busiest time of the year, that it would be good to focus on how we can make that time not slow down, but maybe how to make the time memorable. With the shopping, decorating, traveling, baking, etc that is all about to begin it is time to make a promise to ourselves that we will not blink and have it be the New Year. This year, for the next few weeks, we are all going to make an effort to be here. To take mental pictures. To enjoy this beautiful season and all that it has to offer. Below is how I am going to spend the next few weeks. I know it will not be easy, but these are the things that we look back on and say that they were worth. This list of suggestions on how to make sure the holidays are focused on the things that matter I found online ( I made a few adjustments for our tribe). I loved it so much, I wanted to share it with you. So, let’s do this together TORQUE babes. From this point on, we are going to remember the reason for the season, together.
While we are all going from store to store, website to website, to find the perfect deals and presents, remember to remember the moments. Invite friends to shop with you. Make it a date night. Involve those you love and spend time with them this holiday season.
Wrap your people in hugs and love.
The wrapping will get done! I promise. Don't forget though to wrap the ones you love up in hugs and love. Take the time and make the time to wrap up in a blanket and watch a movie, sit by the fire, or sip hot chocolate. It will be worth it, I guarantee it.
Send peace, love, and good vibes.
Cards, texts, phone calls, the list goes on. Make sure the people in your life are reminded that you love them. Do this together. Beat the stress with kindness and love. WE got this babes!
Donate food, gifts, and time to those who need it.
We are all blessed beyond belief. Help those who need it in whatever way you can. It will warm your heart in ways you can't describe and make their holiday one to remember. Its a beautiful and humbling experience that everyone should partake in. You never know when you will be on the other side of this equation. Be there for others and know that one day if needed, good people will be there for you too.
Make time for others.
How you spend your time says a lot about who you are. It is the one thing that defines you the most. Grab a coffee, a drink, whatever it is, make sure you make time for the people in your life who keep your heart beating.
Simple and to the point. Remember just how blessed we are.
As always, sending my love to you all. Cannot wait to be home with all of you so soon. Get ready for hugs and good vibes! XO, C
