Happy Monday, my lovely friends! This week’s Monday Mantra is, Seek out moments of true connection.
With Christmas only a week away, it’s easy to get caught up in all that remains on your to-do list to prepare for the upcoming holiday, and to be fretting over all the gifts that remain on your list. But in doing so, you miss out on opportunities for true connection- whether with your family and friends or even a complete stranger. These moments of connection are truthfully what will be remembered and are the things you will carry in your heart for the rest of your life.
So if your holiday décor looks nothing like what you are seeing in your Instagram feed, or your gifts look like a 2-year-old wrapped them (Some gifts are awkwardly shaped making them absolutely impossible to wrap!), or you’ll be spending part of your Christmas Eve still out shopping for gifts, I’m here to tell you, it’s okay. Do your best to worry less about those things, and instead, seek out those moments of connection that will fill your heart long after the holiday has passed.
