Kids are especially good at finding joy in the holiday season. Maybe that’s because they’re typically not burdened with a lot of obligations, they expect good things, and most of all… they still believe. I recently saw the Vienna Boys Choir, who are currently touring the US, and it really was like being visited by angels on earth. The message was clear:
Your job this month is to awaken that childlike part of yourself, and joyfully receive the gifts right in front of you.
So between the obligations, between the stress, between all the hard travel days, remember to make time for whatever it is you truly want this year. (And if you need a bit of inspiration, scroll down for ten simple things you can look forward to.) From a beautiful new interiors book to actual sheep cuddles, this list is sure to bring out the kid in you. Enjoy every moment of this month, and I’ll see you in 2020. Merry Christmas, everyone.
