Someone just ask me if I ever have any weakness, and yes I have.
This is one.
I know that a lot of people loves Christmas, but I don’t.
Yes, it is a sad story.
Maybe it’s because my beloved grandfather past away just before Christmas when I was a little child, and that is something I carry with me all the time. Or maybe it is my high sensitive soul that feels there is too much going on before Christmas, and that there are so many people that have it so bad that my mind can not handle it.
I always put myself in a shell the weeks before, and spend more and more time in the forest. To breathe.
I have a big family and I am so pleased that they year after year look after me. We always celebrate together, which is something I love. Everyone is at the same place, laughing and looking after each other. That means everything to me.
Not the gifts, not the decorations, just a candle and something to eat.
I am working hard to not show my little daughter how sad I am, and I always work hard to let her know that gifts are not everything, I try to show her a smaller world, and to be happy with less. This year we buy her one present, and of course she will have a Christmas tree and we will bake some christmas cookies for sure .. But the most important thing is to be together as a family.
