The holidays are officially upon us. Thanksgiving is over and now we are into one of my favorite times of the year. Christmas just has a certain magic that no other time of the year has. Especially as a parent. My daughter Sophie decided that it was a perfect time to watch our favorite Christmas movie, Elf. This movie is by far my favorite. Will Ferrell, James Caan, Bob Newhart, and the biggest burp I’ve ever heard… enough said!
One of the reasons that I love this movie so much is the ridiculously cheery disposition of Buddy the Elf. As Buddy says, “I just like to smile, smiling’s my favorite.” After 2 weeks on this mental diet I can relate. I have been in the best mood the last few weeks! No TV, just listening to my music and LOTS of awful dancing going on in my house. And I’m talking “the sprinkler”, “the shopping cart”, “the robot” and many many other sweet moves. I actually embarrass my kids! My son Parker runs up and yells, “No dancing!” But he can’t stop my groove, because my groove is coming from a place of sheer happiness.
I think I am really seeing my life for what it can be. I’m seeing the people that I want in it, I am seeing the life that will make me feel so free and happy. I want that life.
I’m finding my passion for life again! It’s been lost for a while. I’ve been lost for a while. Isn’t it amazing how 2 weeks can change your life so much?!
