I work from home and sometimes things can be a little too quiet. I used to listen to music, but have, over the past few months, started leaving the television on. Usually, I just let a show like Friends or Felicity run in the background, but around the time that the calendar changed over to December I started playing Christmas movies. I love Christmas movies, the cheesier the better. Except for Love, Actually. I don’t know what it is about that one, but I just don’t like it. But turn on The Holiday and I’ll watch it over and over.
The doorbell rang like it has so many times in the past couple weeks as our Black Friday and Christmas shopping begins to roll in, but this time I was stumped. Mrs. Fields, the packaging said. There was no sender identified.
I tore open the box to find a collection of cookies… and no mention of who they were from.
It’s been four days now and I still don’t know who they’re from. But I’m going to chalk it up to a little Christmas magic and leave it at that.
As one often does at this time of the year, I’ve begun to think about what I want 2018 to look like. It’s not really about new years resolutions, it’s about putting in the time to really truly shape my life. It’s true that there are things I want to change. I think that’s true for most people but after this incredibly hard year, I can honestly say that I’m motivated more than ever to finally work to change these aspects of my life.
I’ve been journaling a lot lately, trying to work through all the thoughts in my head, but I hope to share some of my resolutions with you here, soon.
