the fresh perspective…

With the holidays quickly approaching, it’s sometimes hard to keep it all in perspective.  December will be upon us next week and we’ll all be operating on auto pilot.  Just going through the motions to get through this time.  We shouldn’t view December as a pain but, let’s face it, most of us do.

-sexy holiday parties

There are family gatherings, shopping excursions, holiday parties and winter events happening all month and it makes it hard to appreciate December when it seems it’s the busiest time of the year.  If you’re in retail, your ears have probably been bombarded with Christmas songs already and I’m sure you seen a few Holiday displays around.  If you’re fortunate to NOT be in retail (sorry mall workers…) you might be able to stave off the aforementioned Holiday preparations for a few more weeks.  Eventually we’ll all be in it, spending, waiting, eating, laughing and crying with our friends and family alike.

-the best family

This time of the year is by far my favorite because it helps to remind me about what’s really important.  Spending endless hours with my children ‘doing’ things, chatting about the past year with my mom and mother-in-law,  getting into it with the boys about why the Bears will/won’t go to the playoffs, and just being surrounded by love and life…

-meals with special people

Regardless of what you believe in or celebrate, please try to accomplish December with a small amount of joy in your heart and laughter in your voice.  It only takes a minute to get caught up in the material-ness of the upcoming month and I urge all of you to try to remember that there are other ways to approach December.  That’s the fresh perspective…
