A poem to ponder as we approach the end of Advent:
Are you ready for Christmas?
When people ask this question, they’re usually referring to external preparation – gifts, decorations, parties, food, etc.
Society is fixated on the external factors and begins advertising for Christmas too early. (I enjoy Hallmark movies as much as the next person, but I don’t want to watch Christmas movies in October or November. Sorry Hallmark.)
By the time Christmas arrives, people are exhausted and want it to be over before it even begins!
Christmas is about 10 days away. How do you feel?
Be honest with yourself. Maybe you feel stressed, overwhelmed and/or tired. Maybe you’re so busy you think you’re wasting time reading this post (you’re not wasting time). Maybe you feel excited and/or ready and don’t think this post is relevant to you (it is, keep reading).
