Home can have many doors. It can be a physical structure, a place, or a feeling in your heart. The word “home” can mean something different to everyone. I do believe in the phrase “home is where the heart is,” but I also believe that our heart can be found in many different places and parts of our everyday lives.
The holidays are in full swing and December days seem to come and go with every blink! This time of year always seems to go by so quickly. All of a sudden it is January 1st and I’m left with a vacation hangover and Christmas decorations covering my home that I remember putting up like it was yesterday! With all of the parties, traveling, family time, and entertaining going on this month, it’s easy for time to get away from us. This season, I’m trying to be more mindful of certain moments in order to capture these scenes as photographs in my memory. In this post, I have picked out 5 times during the holiday season to pause and take a mindful look around at the holiday backdrop before you!
“Statistics prove that you have one birthday,
one birthday every year
But there are three hundred and sixty-four unbirthdays
Precisely why we’re gathered here to cheer!”
-The Mad Hatter and The March Hare from “Alice In Wonderland” (The Unbirthday Song)
With St. Patrick’s Day festivities fully underway, the word “lucky” has definitely been on my mind. Around this time of year I find myself reverting back to similar thoughts that I had around Thanksgiving of being grateful for what I have in my life, the thought beginning with “I feel lucky” as opposed to “I feel grateful.”
