I never used to like the holidays. It was always a very depressing time for me in my twenties because I was single with no kids and it seemed like holidays were only made for people who were in a couple or for families, which I had neither. This is why I can hardly believe that I like the holiday season now and I even though I am still pitifully single, I am so looking forward to watching my son's experience, especially now that he kind of "get it" more and more. I have been even listening to Christmas music since about 2 weeks ago (so crazy, I know!) to try and get him to sing some of the songs.
My change in attitude towards this time of year made me really think about how much can change in your life in such a short time and how it is so important not to waste a single second of it. I am tired of waiting around to find someone special, I need to remember that I am special and I need to make myself happy, not rely on tohers to do it. This is a lesson that I really want to teach my son when he grows up and I have to start by living my life as an example for him to follow. Lately I want to plan to do everything I have ever been interested in, short term and long term goals from career, personal, and relationship goals. I will get there even if it takes the rest of my life. But I think that is the point. Everyday that you don't let opportunity pass you by is a sucess, even if it is a small step or accomplishment.
Happy Holidays everyone and start your New Years resolutions today! Why wait until next year?
