Good Morning friends, I am thrilled to be sharing this post, it is jam packed with positive thoughts and a little Christmas inspiration too.
Today is the kick off for our PERK focus word which is POSITIVITY. Goodness knows when I am decorating I need some extra “can do,” attitude. Sometimes decorating sends me into a panic.
Seriously, I am crafter who loves decorating our home, I am not an interior designer.
Stacey and I will be sharing some thoughts on how we strive to incorporate PERK into our lives and maintain a positive outlook throughout the seasons of life.
I invite you to spend a little time with us this morning as we share Christmas décor, a warm hug and our Home Depot gift card and Pompom wreath giveaway!
Let Go of Perfection and Stay Positive!
Staying positive during the pressure of the Holidays can sometimes be a challenge, so I am sharing some tools that work for me.
Rather than let myself get in a tizzy over how my Christmas decorating, cooking, gifting whatever those triggers might be. I let go of the notion of perfection and do what I LOVE! It releases me from unrealistic expectations. I am set free to simply enjoy the process, embrace the moments, express my true self and boy does that feel good!
Life is made up of seasons.
With each season there is emotional and spiritual growth. We begin to understand what we need to embrace and what we need to let go. As for me I realize rather than spend wasted time fretting about how I think things should be, I just let them be. Accepting what is helps me to stay mentally, spiritually, emotionally on track and positive.
My Memories help to keep me positive.
Many of the ornaments on our tree hold memories of days gone by or trips to Hobby Lobby, Walmart, The Dollar Tree or even handmade with my girls laughing over silly goodness and there might just even be a grandchild in the background fussing.
Speak kindly to yourself.
I think it is really important to speak well to ourselves and push out those negative narratives. The thoughts we think and stories we tell ourselves become our reference, so it is important to keep our references positive.
Learning to live with ourselves is a skill and I am not certain that we ever really arrive at total acceptance. However I do believe that if we know in our hearts we are doing our very best and set realistic expectations of ourselves we can live a little gentler, kinder and more positive. When we do that we can pass those positive energies onto our world.
