It’s December and we are getting closer and closer to Christmas. Every Shop I see have decorated for Christmas and now the stress begins. Christmas gifts, the food, the cleaning of the house and to make this Christmas like everyone else. And that everything has to be perfect.
I saw this ad from Clas Ohlsson on YouTube and it felt so appropriate that I decided that I needed to share it here whit you. (I am not paid to share this).
Why do we have to stress? Christmas comes each year either way. And why do you need to have a perfect Christmas? I know that some Christmases in the past that I have stressed. Everything had to be perfect, especially the first Christmases together with my husband. But he doesn’t care.
I love Christmas, but now I sit down and think about what I find important with Christmas and not what everyone else does. For me, Christmas is about spending time with the people you love and I have promised myself not to stress this year. At least not with Christmas. I think I will have my hands full with packing for my time studying abroad. And I really don’t need to stress over Christmas as well.
And I hope that you all don’t stress and take care of yourself. What’s the most important thing for you about Christmas? Is it the tree? Is it presents? The company? Just sit own an think about it. Maybe list the important things and take away the not important things. Maybe cut down on the food that is served. Just do what’s right for you.
Today is the Second Advent and when my husband gets home we are going to light the second candle. And probably watch a Christmas movie. And that will be the perfect ending of this week.
I wish you all a wonderful Sunday!
