Valentine’s Day is just around the corner but – as much as I love you, dudes – this year I’m going to focus on Galentine’s Day and celebrating the awesome girl friends in our lives instead. It doesn’t mean I have anything against Valentine’s Day! I personally think it’s an amazing Holiday and I love it to death because I am and I’ll always be the biggest advocate for love. But I want to focus on Galentine’s because Valentine’s can be a difficult day especially for women. AND… since we know better than anybody how we would like to be spoiled on this day, why not do it?
For the cringy moments, and the cheesy moments, the moments you f*ck up really bad and all you can do is look at yourself and laugh at how big of a mess you are. For all those moments when you fell 7 times but needed to get back up 8. For all those moments when curiosity and adventure led you to unbeaten paths. For those moments when the walls were too high but if you couldn’t break them, you decided to climb them instead.
Almost the end of the year… There’s a bit of nostalgia, a bit of sadness (because I don’t want the holidays to end), a bit of anxiety for the next year, a bit of hope and of course a lot of excitement. I can already feel that 2019 is going to be filled with creativity, art, positive vibes, endless adventures, real connections and fulfilling projects. Maybe it’s just my mushy feelings, maybe it’s because 2018 has been a really tough year that kicked my ass emotionally and otherwise, but I’m feeling optimistic about next year.
Christmas time is almost here and every year around this time I basically turn myself into a five year old – as opposed to the rest of the year when I’m usually a 3-year old hahaha 😆 Just kidding… But seriously, Christmas is a very special time for me because it’s not only magical, but it’s also a great reminder for us to be kinder, more empathic, more understanding and more loving.
Nothing is more joyous but can also produce more stress than this time of the year. As Christmas and the winter Holidays approaches, the pressure can rise as fast as our peppermint candy cane latte consumption levels. Luckily, we can turn all this frenzy into wonderful excitement and keep our sanity with just a few tweaks in our daily routine.
