the quest for holidays

In the hustle of the December twenty-somethings, I am left feeling a sudden moment of clarity. One that I want to pass along to you my friend. In this moment I remember that true holidays are about connections with other souls. These moments don't even have to be aligned with a specific date on the calendar. They are about recharging. They are about getting quiet and remembering what it is you live for. Because so often- life gets in the way of living.

(Partial clarity provided by time just spent drinking spicy beers and time with my friend Wendy. Her soul gets mine like no other. She feels like home.)

Paying bills, vacuuming, regret, anger, jealously, errands, disappointment, perfectionism- I don't live for.  No sir ee. Not quite sure why they get so much of my daily focus though. Perspective can be a hard thing to come by some days.

Connecting with like minded souls, being vulnerable and authentic, telling the truth, learning new things, stretching outside of my zone of comfort, advocacy and world changing- These are the things I live for.  These things refuel me.

Lately, whenever I find myself stretched due to a life circumstance so far I think a muscle will tear- I thank God and the Universe. Truly. It feels counter-intuitive at first. But really- these are the moments where we learn the lessons we are meant to learn to be who we are meant to be. I'm so grateful for perspective. Practice it- "Thank you God for this opportunity to..."

At first I want to tell myself to shut up. Sometimes I actually do. But most often, when the initial fear or pain wears off I realize- yes, this too is a gift. Not all gifts come wrapped in pretty paper.

So, if you haven't started shopping yet, or haven't wrapped a thing... remember what matters most to you in life. Chances are you have everything you need right now, and don't even know it.

So much love,
Chrissy

  1. Hello, everyone! I'm here to explore blogs and forums about the wonderful and most safe cure for (Herpes Virus). I was positive about the deadly virus called herpes and I lost hope because I was outcast and rejected even by my closest friends. I searched on-line to know an enquirer cure for Herpes and I read someone's testimony on how he was cured from Herpes so I decided to contact the same herbalist because I know that nature has the power to heal everything. I contacted him to know how he can help me and he told me never to worry that he will heal me with the natural herbs from God! After 2 days of contacting him, he told me that the cure has been ready and he sent it to me via DHL and it got to me after 3 days! I used the med as he instructed (MORNING and EVENING) and i was cured! it's really like a dream but I am so happy! That's the reason I decided to also add more comments on Him so that more can be saved just like me! and you can get in touch with him via email chiefdrlucky@gmail.com or WhatsApp +2348132777335 Kindly visit website https://chiefdrluckyherbaltherapy.wordpress.com/
