This holiday season is going to be all about FUN!
I know that there are times in every life when it just isn’t
fun, when it, in fact, sucks.
But when it doesn’t, shouldn’t we be having as much fun as
possible? Wouldn’t that be the best way to squash the feeling that it is all too
To enjoy this precious holiday season.
I have always loved Christmas. It is a great source of happiness to me, but
there have been times when parts of it didn’t seem particularly fun to me.
Shopping at Wal-Mart? Not fun. Shopping at local shops? Fun.
Every year, I find myself simplifying just a little more,
and this one will be no different. I’m not not necessarily cutting anything out. All I really
want to do this year is have fun, to let things happen, to not feel compelled to orchestrate every step.
And that’s where I am as we begin this holiday season.
If it ain’t fun, what’s the point?
And speaking of fun, Jamie Ridler is hosting the Kickin’ It Old Skool Blog-a-thon for the
whole month of December. What could be more fun for a blogger? You’ll
be seeing me a lot more this month as I join hundreds of other writers for
this month long event. Each day, we’ll be given a new prompt. The goal? To have a little fun. I’ve been looking for some new ways to shake things up creatively, so this is just the ticket.
If you’d like to join in, come on over to Jamie Ridler Studios. Or grab your journal and create your own.
