I was chatting with my friend last night – my GREENVILLE friend. I have one now! Yippee Skippy! Anyway, we were talking about how fast the year was going. I said that we were 6 months and 1 week from Christmas. And then it hit me. It’s July. Do the math, C!
Cool weather is coming, jollyness is on it’s way! It is officially the time of year when I pull out Christmas tunes just because it makes me feel better about the 100 degree weather. I can’t wait til December when the temperature drops to a refreshing 65, AAAHHHH (I can hear Jared’s eyes rolling.)Break out your Santa hat, pop in a Mariah Carrey Christmas CD, an suck down an iced peppermint mocha.
Where is all this spirit coming from? A friend was telling me about how things never seem to change, and he is just tired of waiting. “You know what it’s like to wait.” And I answered to his charge as the revelation came out of my mouth.
I’m not waiting anymore.
There’s no more “When I getta…” I just have a stillness inside that is allowing me to just live. Kids, today IS your life. Whatever you think it’s missing is just in your head. Life doesn’t start when you finally get settled (what does that mean anyway) or get married or have that perfect job or money in the bank or a baby on the way. Today is what you have. And by the world’s standards, I don’t have too much. But I have peace and I am happy. Now, all that other stuff is just icing on the cake I can’t eat ’cause I just worked out. Ha!
Anyway, stop being grumpy or cynical or bitter about what your life doesn’t look like. After all, it’s almost Christmas!
All I want for Christmas is yooouuuuu.
