St Stephens Day Reflections! 2015

Hello Everyone,

I hope everyone has had an amazing and festive Christmas!! I hope it was filled with good food, great company and lots of fun & laughter!! 

This year Christmas seems to have passed me by a little bit... dont get me wrong I have had a lot of fun & a really good Christmas but it seems to have whizzed passed me in the blink of an eye. I have seemed to let work and personal drama take over a little bit, meaning I did not get to complete many of my goals I had for this festive season, Blogmas included. 

However I am not going to beat myself up about it, instead Im focusing on the future. There is a new year around the corner after all. A recent tragedy has taken place close by me and it has made me look back and reevaluate things, appreciate things, and think more about what I want from my time spent on this planet.    

Goals I managed to complete - 
  • Get in contact with people that may have slipped my radar recently... 
  • Do my Christmas shopping early (majority of this was done early with some last bits and pieces Christmas week - I still count it as a win!!)
  •  Spend more time and effort on personalising each Gift I wrap and Christmas Card I write. - This one I enjoyed and will continue to do!!
  • Go Ice Skating Again! - Didnt manage this one yet
  • Watch Elf! Again not yet!! 
  • Read Christmas Books........ Always next year I guess.....
  • Watch the Late Late Toy Show! This is one I was really upset I didnt get to do....
  • Stay Organised so I can make the most out of my time and funds this Christmas Season! Honestly did this to the best of my ability... for the most part but next I will try harder
  • Make more time for the people I love and who are most important in my life!  Same with last point
  • Be Present! Live in the moment! Breathe and Enjoy the most wonderful time of the year!! I really did enjoy it even though it was crazy and kind of a whirlwind.

Before the end of the week I am going to look back on my goals and see how far I have come (If at all) and I am going to think about what I want from next year too. Honestly I think this is what everyone should take a little time to do at the end of each year.

So much happens in 12 months but rarely do we take the time to notice it. I mean you could use landmarks like your birthday or New Years Eve but as side from these how often do we stop and look at all we have in this world. Im not specifically talking about material things, although they are nice and some important (for example clothes and a roof over our head) but Im talking about all the people in our life that we hold dear to us and other things we cant buy like our health & Safety.      

Some people do not have the luxuries that we have and sometimes that is easy to forget. This however is the perfect time of year to remember that and all that we have to be grateful for. 

Anyway I just wanted write a lil post to say Hello, Happy Holidays & I hope that everyone is enjoying all the luxuries they have in their life right now!! I will be back very soon my loves!!

Chat Soon x
