Good evening beautiful world and Merry Christmas to you all. We’re coming to the end of one of the most widely celebrated events of the year, so I’m sure we’re all on a little come down to be honest! You know, I think it’s crazy how Christmas is one of those rare holidays that the majority of the population celebrate (I know not all religions and beliefs celebrate and that’s totally cool too). Across the world on this one special day, for once we’re all on the same page.
Now I know what you’re thinking – this is going to be one of those cliché posts about how Christmas isn’t about the gifts and the money spent, it’s all about the people you spend it with and blah blah blah.
And well you’re kind of right kind of wrong.
Sometimes, and I know this may seem a little stupid to some of you – I tend to get a little down over Christmas just due to the immense social pressure that’s built around it.
Especially when you’re younger, everyone’s asking each other what they got and what they did and comparing gifts and whatever.
I don’t know about everyone else but for me as I’ve grown I’ve realised how much of a blessing Christmas is, since it brings everyone together. And I mean everyone! As I said at the beginning of this post, the entire world is celebrating the same thing!
It’s the one opportunity/ excuse (if you like) to come together and express our gratitude for one another. I love that, that’s wholesome and good.
As I’ve said before, I like my designer and there are material things I desire, but for me to satisfy my soul and to make me feel at peace it’s all about the people I spend time with and the love I give and receive.
So for me, Christmas is never about the gifts.
If anything, I’d rather purchase myself the designer items in the future as a mark of my financial achievements in life! After starting my new job I treated myself to a Gucci scarf for no good reason other than I wanted it! It marked a major financial milestone in my success and so I did that for myself!
Christmas isn’t all about the giving of presents. It’s about the giving of love.
Spread it people, there can never be enough.
I hope you’ve all had a lovely holiday, and I wish you all a happy new year! Full of lots of new exciting things, and for one, more blog posts💫✨
All my love,
