Make Your Own Hallmark Holiday
Most of our holidays don’t resemble the Hallmark images we see everywhere, but there’s still pressure to make them look that way. So how do we create our own holiday rituals that really represent what this time of year means to us?
Here are some things that I do:
Appreciate the light that will be increasing daily
Bake yummy treats
Drink hot chocolate
Visit good friends
Express love to those close to you
Appreciate the holiday decorations in other people’s homes without feeling the need to compete
Listen to my inner voice that helps me figure out how much holiday I want to observe
Mostly, I practice gratitude for what I do have instead of wanting more.
Make your holidays what you want them to be.
