It’s The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year…Or Is It?

When I was a kid Christmastime felt magical, you know? Full of wondrous, spirited, warmhearted holiday happiness. Like in the movies. Lately, not so much. Since I’ve been in my 20’s this time of year just doesn’t feel as special. It’s more wrought with thoughts of stress, spending a ton of money on gifts, worrying about overeating, being lazy with my time off, and making sure I can perfectly balance work, life, and all the holiday hoopla. I realize this sounds totally scroogey and, I admit, I am fully looking towards a time when I get jazzed again about the rapid succession of the holidays (maybe when we have a house to decorate or kids to enjoy it with?). For now I guess I’ll just try to stay positive, warm, and humble.

  1. I know exactly how you feel. For some reason, this year I’m having a hard time really getting into the swing of things with the holidays. I’m wondering if it’s because I’m only two months away from 30 and am no closer to having the lovely family I thought I’d have with me to share my Christmas with. Or, it could be that it’s becoming a little bit overwhelming with all of the constant coming, going and errands — and trying to stay healthy with all the temptations.
