Slowing Down The Holidays

Sunday, December 8th, 2013

December snuck up on me like nobody’s business. I try to be somewhat proactive and get my Christmas cards done early. I get into the spirit of the holidays early in the month. Not this month. I’m lagging. It could be because of NANO. Hey, I’m ready to blame that for a lot of things.I mean writing 50,000 words in a month is a significant word count for me. I think it took quite a bit out of me.

Every year I hear people expressing how stressed they are during the holidays. Sometimes I think it means we all need to take a step back and recognize when we’re overdoing it. We need to acknowledge that the world spins super fast. Yet just because our wild world of 24-hour news, reality television and social media says we should go at 300 mph and live our lives in constant anxiety, we don’t have to.  We just don’t. When we decide not to hook in to more than we can handle, to allow all the panic/anxiety to rule us, we win.We become calmer. We don’t let others tell us that we should be afraid of everything all the time.

So recognizing that my mojo isn’t quite up to speed this month, I’m feeling little guilt that I’ve written only a paragraph in a week and haven’t finished my Christmas cards. So with that in mind, I’ll be a tad incognito from today until Wednesday. I’ll be writing or reading or both. My social networking might be sporadic. I’ll be back to full bloom by Thursday next week.

With that in mind, here’s to a lovely week for everyone, and I’ll talk to you soon.
