Anyway, December is here. My favorite month of the year. First, it's my birthday month! Second, it's the holiday season, Christmas time and New Year. I'm not a religious person but I love Christmas (the music, the giving/receiving presents). I don't know what it is about gift giving but it brings me joy. Maybe because it gives me an excuse to go shopping without feeling bad that I might spend too much. But hey, I love walking around the gift packaging section, all those beautiful gift wrap papers, bows, ribbons, totes. I'm telling you I can stay in there all day.
You might or might not known but I have a sweet tooth. That being said, I will bake, bake, bake and it will make my house smell amazing. The best part is that I will give them all away. I don't mind eating them. In fact I love it but it's not a good idea for my diet. And you probably don't want to know what I'm like when I have too much sugar.
I was like a zombie for the most part of the year. Nothing is forever and there will be a time when we must say goodbye to the ones we loved. I understood that completely but still it hit me hard. It didn't prepare me for the emptiness or the life without them. Sadness did fly away on the wings of time. I'm glad that December made me feel so nostalgic. However it's just not the same as before. This time around I have no family to celebrate with. And I've also come to accept the fact that I'm alone and it's okay, not the end of the world yet. The wonderful holiday season is here so I promise myself that I will do my best to live in the present and to make every moment worth living. In other words: no more sulking.
May all the wishes you wish come true and stay close to anything/anyone that makes you glad you are alive.
