I love Christmas.
I love preparing for Christmas. I love thinking about Christmas. I love Christmas music. I love decorating for Christmas. I love buying "the perfect" gifts. I love food. I love cookies. I love spending time with family. I love Christmas movies. I love snow. I love being a Capricorn.
I love you man.
Basically when the kids threw off their Halloween costumes, the holiday season began at our house. For real. I bought gifts early, wrapped gifts early, felt super prepared. The "festive" level at our house was at Def-Con 5.
Then the real world happened.
I worried, I fretted, I obsessed about something (that will remain nameless to protect folks' privacy).
As I read the other day, I "borrowed trouble". Why do we do that? Worry about the unknown? It's that...it's unknown! Isn't that stupid? Worrying is like rocking in a rocking chair. It's something to do to pass the time, but it's not going to get you anywhere.
The festive went on, I stayed pretty festive. But the worry would creep back over me, like a fog.
I had a dream. Do you believe in the power of dreams? I mean...not like I wished for a unicorn before I went to sleep and then woke up riding one....not that kind.
Do you believe you can receive messages when you're not so darn busy worrying about stupid things?
At least I do, until I let the worry creep on me again. I'm naughty like that...human I guess.
This dream, which was very warm and full of yellow and orange, if that makes any sense, told me everything is all right. Everything is going to be all right.
I've received messages in dreams before...but I shant go into those right now, for fear you already think I'm fit to be shipped off to the looney bin.
Believe your inner voice, friends. It won't lead you astray.
The holiday season went on......AND THEN....my message came true, I was filled with joy and laughter and giggles and remembered why we shouldn't borrow trouble. It takes away from today.
Oh, and I let my kids play video games until they fell over in exhaustion. Don't worry, this one reads more in his free time than you, me and the rest of the free world put together. It's okay to break rules sometimes.
And listen to the messages that lead us to lives of happiness.
love and light,
