This month is filled with special holidays across the world. If you follow me on twitter or Instagram then you know that I’ve been describing some of them for my #DailyWordArt #WordOfTheDay posts.
I know a lot of my followers celebrate Christmas, but no matter what you celebrate this month I hope it was, or will be great. Holidays can be a really hard time for people. It’s stressful at the best of times and this year has definitely not been that.
So if you’re struggling this year, just remember that you’re not alone. You aren’t overreacting and you have a valid reason for the pain and anxiety. Try not to let your inner bully force you into doing more than you can handle and don’t let anyone, including yourself try to tell you that you’re not doing enough.
You are. I promise you that just surviving is enough of a victory.
And for those of you finding the holiday season a welcome relief from the boredom that comes with lockdown, I hope it’s everything you needed and that the festive cheer carries you into the new year.
I have way too many people I care about to be able to send them all physical cards, as much as I’d like to, so every year I try to make a digital holiday card to share online. This year I made two. You saw the first one already at the top. It follows the theme of the year which is… Goose!
The goose is a figure of chaos. It’s wildly unpredictable, and it seemed like the perfect theme for this year. And at times this year I’ve felt like someone laid that old curse of “May you live in interesting times.” on us, so it seemed like that fit as well.
The other card I did has more of a kinky theme, which I’m sure some of you will appreciate. So here it is:
Unfortunately I didn’t get a chance to do a holiday story this year. I had wanted to, but there never seems to be enough time. But if you haven’t had a chance to read it yet, I did post one a couple years ago that you can find here: Santa’s Gift (story) Part one – Musings of a Chaotic Mind (kessilylewel.com)
I’m not sure if there will be another post before the end of the year, so just in case… Happy New Year!
