Whilst I enjoy the Festive Season and all the trimmings and trappings, there are definitely two sides to Christmas for me.
I do experience a strong sense of loss as a result of choices made and I miss some things I used to do and enjoy.
I miss out on seeing my kids getting involved in fun, highly creative ventures.
In previous years I have felt a bit lost at this time of year. Once work is completed and we all go our separate ways, I have felt a vacuum.
This year is different. I’m calmer. More relaxed. Less stressed. Gifts have been purchased and wrapped. Plans have been made. On balance, I’m actually looking forward to Christmas Day.
I do wish for all who read my blog the very best of the Season and I hope that your 2014 is full of joy and prosperity.
