We all joke about how the change in seasons impact people’s behavior. We are entering into the season of Fall. Most people are sad to see the summer leave. I am one of them. I enjoy the warm weather, wearing less clothing, outdoor entertainment and a slower pace of life. Let’s be mindful that we can still enjoy the power of each season and what each season represents in our lives and how we can connect spiritually to the changing of the seasons.
I’ve been absent for a moment, while I was away, I missed the connection to my blogging community.
Anyway, I’m back. Life is moving at warp speed starting with the changing of seasons, and preparing for Halloween, Thanksgivings, Christmas, New Years and all the other celebrations in between. With that said, people tend to get caught up in the stress of being busy, cooking, shopping, planning, and making lists, so they don’t forget the list they’ve already made; during this time, other areas of life are neglected. We lose even more sleep, stop exercising or don’t take the time to breath and press the reset button.
Because of the desires to live up to the expectations of others while trying to satisfy the requests of family and friends who have become needy.
I’ve decided to put a stop to the syndrome of HOLIDAY INSANTIY. How? I don’t follow the crowd, ( anymore). If I’m not traveling to see my grandchildren in North Carolina, I stay home, clean, decorate (love holiday decorations) cook, and invite people over for a potluck good time, (no gift required policy). The food is set up buffet style (self-service), I use all disposable items (quick clean up), and for the entertainment, there’s a movie in the bedroom, (no food allowed), tables for games, like dominoes, card games, and the classic game Monopoly. Yes, contrary to what people think they know, adults like playing games.
This is my gift to people, the time to slow down, and to remember what’s outside of those pretty wrapped boxes can be just an enjoyable and relaxing. Do you understand where I am going with this?
