I know that the holiday season is often known as the “most wonderful time of the year” but for me it always means craziness! Busy, busy, busy. When I think of all that is going on over the next month and all I have to do, it feels like I’m looking up at the Eiffel Tower! A huge feat!
But it is also a wonderful time of the year. My husband and I both have December birthdays, and we have lots of festivities with the kids and friends such as school parties, decorating the tree, the house, sending out holiday cards, baking Christmas cookies, shopping for Santa, etc. Just as the holiday frenzy comes to a peak we will board a plane heading out to Virginia to spend Christmas with both of our extended families. It is going to be crazy!
In the meantime, my social good blogging is picking up. I’ve received three requests to write posts on some cool projects happening around the world which I’m really excited to share. I just had my first Spanish conversation class today to start preparing for Honduras in a little over a month. I haven’t picked up my dusty notebook of Spanish verbs and words since I was in Guatemala last April thus it was quite intimidating. I realize how much I have to relearn and learn! But I’m hoping that the next three weeks of speaking spanish brings it back a bit so I’m ready for my next adventure. There is nothing more frustrating than not being able to communicate with people so I’m going to be working hard.
Have you ever noticed that life is like one giant roller coaster? Just when I feel like life is getting under control and perhaps even a little boring, it changes and picks up on high speed. I guess that is why they call life a journey, not a destination. You just need to go with the flow and remember to breathe!
How are you faring with the holidays? Is it crazy for you? Do you love or hate this time of year?
