Getting closer and closer. I have decided that people this year are so un enthused about Christmas because there is so much pressure on people....teachers have to finalize everything they have done throughout the year and write reports; builders are so under the pump to get things finished for clients, retailers well who knows, florists have heaps of weddings and flowers being ordered for Christmas functions and last but certainly not least parents have all the running around juggling and end of year things to go to. Stop, yes lets all just stop now and think......what are we doing to ourselves....what is Christmas really about? We all get bogged down in the expectations of what we think we need to be giving people, family and friends when really the answer is quite simple......its time. We need to all take a deep breath and just slow right down and eliminate this chaos out of Christmas. Take time out to get back to the basics...like cooking a cake for someone down the road....going over to your mates and saying lets have a beer and most importantly spending time with our children. Sometimes i am guilty of all these things; trying to juggle a business on my own, run a house hold and spend time with my family. And yes we all get on that merry go round and don't know how to get off. But please at Christmas lets try to spend time with family, friends and remember its not all about presents it way more than that.
