Christmas is just around the corner. I don’t know about you, but I feel like I just blinked, and it is time to “deep clean,” purge unwanted clothing, get closer in my relationship with God, and begin self-reflecting about the end of the year, unravel the decorations, and bring out the long-awaited Christmas tree!
This time of year is filled with a lot of holiday “bustle,” and “hustle,” with little space for any down-time, until the very last day of December. But by than, I may feel so exhausted that I have forgotten about the major things that bring abundant joy into my own life. However, I plan on changing things this Christmas by shopping and giving back smarter, and not working harder, while remembering the true reason for the season with my family. I think that as mothers we forget about what we deserve for Christmas, and we put ourselves last on the list whether we have been naughty or nice, we deserve some self-care time.
When we have moments that are specially designed for us, we have the heart-felt ability to begin the cleansing process of true healing, wellness, and becoming healthier, while moving towards becoming better mothers, sisters, friends, neighbors, and good people in the world. Sure, this may seem like something that is difficult to do during the holidays, but it is very possible to get my life in order, and take the much needed time out to celebrate myself as an active and productive mom.
I have compiled a holiday gift guide of some of my favorite things that help assist in my continued growth spiritually, emotionally, and mentally through my active lifestyle, and hope that you find some things to help you grow too?
Holiday Gift Guide for the Active Mom 2017
I’m excited to share that Lamps Plus has launched a custom photo feature on their site.
