Christmas is the beautiful time of the season full of joy, lights, decorations, baking and presents but also can be the hardest time of the year to celebrate because of the broken relationship, death, broken promises and missing someone you love.
I am experiencing it right now and I don’t feel like putting up the Christmas tree and decorate my house like I used to. As my children get older and they are spreading their wings, being with their friends are more fun than being with family. I got the taste of what my life will be once my children are out of the nest and live their own lives.
There is a reason for a season and that is the same with every event in our lives. There is a reason why we are still here. There is a reason for the broken relationship and broken promises. Sometimes, we can’t see what lies ahead of us because we only can see the hurt at the moment. Holiday season just makes it harder to go through the day.
I realize I have a choice to make because time keeps moving forward and I can’t be stuck in the time zone of the past, or waiting for the broken promise or mourning of the deaths and broken relationship. Because life doesn’t wait for me. I either move on with the time and get on with my life or I will be left out and let life goes by me.
So, I decided today that I won’t let any circumstances in my life to hold me back to enjoy my life. So, I took out my Christmas tree and I put it up and I will decorate my house as the day goes til Christmas. I also going to bake some cookies and enjoy the hustle and bustle of the holidays. After all, life is worth living and there is a brighter future ahead of us 🙂
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 🙂
