I think today is a good day to stop for a moment in amongst all the rushing around and the sometimes perceived and self-inflicted mayhem that is the run up to Christmas Day, to think of others. Those that might be hating all the build up and festivities, those that may be dreading what is supposed to be a 'family' day spent alone.
We each do Christmas in our own way and sometimes life and events can stir things up, change things in the blink of an eye to something that perhaps you weren't expecting or into something you are not looking forward to. All the talk of buying this and that sometimes needs to stop and over a mug of coffee it's good to let the calm settle and realise that if things are different, or more difficult you can and will cope. There are people thinking of you and caring about you, if you just let them into your world a little.
Let's all take a moment or two today to be grateful for what we have, to say thank you to someone who has helped us ... even if that is just the dog, cat or goldfish for simply being there. And to acknowledge that we matter, we all matter. 💖
Day 23 and I have a little tanning thingy.
Seemingly you add it to moisturiser to get a 'healthy colour', I'll just eat some fruit and veggies and be healthy from the inside out instead. I've never been one for a fake tan, even a mild one.
