BLOGMAS- How I Beat the Festive Blues (CHRISTMAS )


It's the first day of December; I am excited and nervous at the same time. For some weird reason, I get uneasy any time the year is coming to an end. 

Even though December hosts my favorite holiday of the year, it is difficult to deny what I feel. 

Envision writing an examination, and you hear a declaration saying, "Place your pen on the table and leave the class." Announcements like this can make one pass out, particularly when you are not near the end of your work. This can be linked to me in the long stretch of December. 

December kind of put me under pressure; it makes me feel like I have to work harder, regardless of past months.

Sincerely, I can't tell if this is just my thing or if it applies to everybody. But I know It is the dread of not having the option to accomplish all I want within the following 30 days. 

Try not to misunderstand me; I appreciate the incredible things God brought my direction this year. 

Also, I am overly thankful for the things he retracted from me; nonetheless, there is a voice in my mind that keeps making me feel like I have to accomplish more before the new year.

While I was attempting to battle every one of these voices in my mind, I halted for a moment to take a full breath. At this point, I came back to the reality of all I have achieved in this season.

Sometimes, we get lost pursuing what is not lost. We forget our wins almost immediately after gaining them, causing us to negate the wonders and the positive things we have enjoyed.

"Let all that I praise the LORD; may I never forget the good things he does for me." - Psalm 103:2
This revelation made me break out in songs of thanksgiving. After all, I have enough good things to be thankful for.  

Have fun with Amazon this holiday.

  1. I do remember the time I had exams too but it is far gone in my mind and it never stuck to me that much - If there is something you haven't accomplished just start doing it next year or the year after :)

  5. Christmas season makes me excited, but the one that gives me anxiety is my birthday instead, my birthday is two weeks before Christmas and getting a year older makes me worry so much, and let me think about things I accomplished this year.

  6. I love that you're bringing attention to this. I used to get the holiday blues all the time. Christmas was always the worst. I've noticed that it has gotten better the more involved I get with friends and family.

  7. Christmas can put people under pressure but you need to focus on the positives. And be nice to yourself.

  8. It can be a stressful season but what I do is I take things one at a time, prioritize and finish what I can finish in a day. We only have 2 hands and 2 feet anyway :-)

  10. I don't think I have had holiday blues before, but I do get winter blues. Only thing that helps me is sun and vacation in a tropical place is a must x

  11. I always get this feeling too.
    Maybe because I always want something new to give kids and loved ones every Christmas or of trying a new dish. Lol.
