This time of year is amazing, magic, fun…and HARD.
Seriously, if you’re over the age of thirty, the holidays are a glittery bunch of fun rolled together with a pile of crapola in the form of “things to do.”
Don’t get me wrong – I really love this time of year. The baking begins, holiday decorations come out, the shopping deals happen and you get to see family members you don’t always see…
But we do all that in addition to our normal stuff.
For the people fighting end-of-year deadlines (me), the hardy souls who did NaNoWriMo (*waves*) and especially for those recovering from some form of winter cooties, the holidays can feel like an uphill drive on an empty tank of gas.
My favorite motivational vid of the week is this little gal…Jessica. If she can’t make you smile today, I don’t know what can. We should all wake up that excited about each day.
So the next time you’re feeling overwhelmed by all that you have to do, take a page out of Jessica’s book, look yourself dead in the eye and belt out a pep talk.
I like my bed…I like my pillow!
I like my blog! I like my friends!
I like my undies! (just kidding)
I like my house! I like my garden!
I like my family! I like my life!
And I’m finally getting my hair cut on Friday, after being in hair hell for 2 months cuz of shingles!!! WOOT!
*pumps fists in the air*
I actually got fired up for a minute, despite the aching muscles from Crossfit, the shingles headache and the endless list of tasks that must be done before the end of the year.
Not a bad lesson from a toddler, eh?
