It is the most wonderful time of the year! I love the holidays and yet, of late, I find myself feeling overwhelmed with activity and obligation.
This year, I am going to approach things differently. My husband and I agreed we would protect our Sundays so we would have 50% fewer weekend "things" we needed to do. We are making a concerted effort to simplify this year. We have been tapering off the number of gifts we purchase for Christmas for several years. I am committed to NOT gaining weight this season, which means I will taper off the number of treats I consume. Nothing will cross these lips unless it is 100% certified completely worth the extra calories!
This season, I have a distinct focus, and that is little Nathan Reid Massa, born on November 14th. He is my nephew's son, which makes me a Great Auntie. I know I have always been a great aunti to our 17 nieces and nephews, but now I officially a GREAT AUNTIE! Tee hee. When I met him Friday afternoon, I told him I was going to hold him all day on Thanksgiving, and that real soon I would get to be a babysitter. He is a precious bundle of perfection and wonder and we are so blessed to have him in our lives! He represents such a beautiful component of my healthy journey - love, health, promise for the future and pure joy!
So, what will your healthy focus be this season? I hope it is something as wonderful a little Nathan!
Desire to seek balance. Dedication to my new grand nephew. Discipline to honor carefree Sundays.
