Holiday season is upon us and boy does it get hectic. You don’t have to let it stress you out though. I myself have never been a stressed out person but as I get older I have more stress than I ever have before (duh) especially around the holidays. The hustle and bustle of life gets in our way and makes us not as appreciative as we should be. We’re alive. We get to celebrate Thanksgiving and Christmas or Hanukkah or Kwanzaa or whatever you believe in. We’re blessed. Sometimes you just need to step back and smell the flowers.
Step One: Wear a cute outfit. Flaunt what ya mama gave ya. Dressing up always puts me in a 52764x better mood.
Step Two: Check out the cool wall art or just art in general. Look at someone elses creative mind with open eyes.
Step Three: Smell the flowers. Literally. Go and smell the flowers and buy some if you’re feeling wild.
Step Four: LOVE. If you’re lucky enough to be in love, embrace it.
I hope you all have the happiest of holidays and I hope you can let yourself enjoy the beauty of it all. Life can be hard but it doesn’t have to ruin your parade. Smell the flowers. I promise no one has ever regretted stepping back, taking a breath, and really enjoying the small things that we take for granted.
“You’re only here for a short visit. Don’t hurry, don’t worry. And be sure to smell the flowers along the way.” -Walter Hagen
