The Holidays

I would love to have something deep to say about the holiday season. Something soul inspiring and beautiful and not too sappy.

Sadly, I don't got it. Mostly because I'm too sappy to come up with anything not sappy.

So here's all I'll say: please, take a moment out of your life today and enjoy it. Any moment. A moment where you're taking a shower, eating a piece of fudge, warming your hands under a faucet, reading about two men in love, hugging your husband or wife or child or parent. Just really be there and revel in being alive, in being where and what and who you are, yes?

That's my goal for this year: remembering to enjoy these little moments. Just one moment, every day, even if it's something as small as eating enough food to rid myself of hunger pangs. Or finishing the chapter of a story. Or seeing two people in love, holding hands as they walk in front of me on the sidewalk.

Really, those are the moments I WANT to remember, down the road, I think.

So here's wishing you all some extra joy in your life. Have a great holiday, ya'll.
