Celebrate!

Last week was a big birthday week for me and my family. My mother, my daughter and I celebrate our birthdays 4 days apart… my mother all but dismisses her birthday, mine is between my mother’s and my daughter’s so it tends to get forgotten until the last minute as I’m so busy trying to prepare for my 4 year old’s party. Talking to many people around me this seems so typical… we celebrate ourselves less and less as we get older. Why? Surely we should be celebrating ourselves more and more?

Wouldn’t it be nice if we could celebrate who we are and those around us everyday.  But lets be realistic! Life is busy and for most of us that’s not going to happen as much as we may like it to, so the next best thing is to take time out at special times of the year to celebrate who we are, where we’ve been, where we are, our capacity to love and be loved.

The joy of December!

SouthMoltonStreetLights09 My favourite time of the year! It really shouldn’t be, it is dark and cold and dreary here in the UK, but we’re such a clever bunch…

we’ve turned all the dark, cold, dreariness into a ton of fun!! Lots of pretty lights, warm fires, roasting chestnuts, tacky decorations and lots of unnecessary nonsense in the shops that is such fun to trawl through…  Best of all it is the time of the year we take to celebrate family and friends.

Much attention is given to the way we abuse this season simply by either throwing money at it or allowing ourselves to become so stressed with trying to meet either our own or others’ expectations of us. My view is that if that is the way you choose to experience the season it is your responsibility, your choice. You can choose how you react to everything around you.

I choose to see the joy in the season, to find the ridiculously tacky reindeer decorations etc. huge fun, to feel the excitement of the hustle and bustle on the pavements in front of the shops, to love coming indoors out of the cold to a warm fire and the laughter of my children (okay, I admit, sometimes they’re yelling and screaming!!!), to revel in the anticipation of sharing time and gifts with my friends and my family.  I adore the way the shops, the streets and our homes are lit up with coloured lights – so inviting!
