The time

I arrived where everything Christmas was blowing through the air.

Delight and joy are all around, but so are sadness and loss.

And so, as I bake these cookies to bring to those I love and care for.

I hope this holiday the little things during the good and the bad moments will bring you some joy and comfort.

God doesn’t want us down for long, so even if things aren’t great this time of year, the little things like Christmas lights and movies bring me so much joy.

What is one thing you would change about yourself?

Is one thing I would change about myself?

This would be my shyness/ fear of public speaking, as I always hesitate when doing things with people or at work.

But I’m working on being more open and public speaking. I’m still trying to overcome it.

I would love to be more confident in speaking up, taking risks, and doing things that require me to be on camera or stage with large crowds.

Am I

Are you more of a night or morning person?

More of a night or morning person?

I am a night person as I love staying up late, and sometimes, at night, I get inspired to write or finish reading a book. Or I am staying up late to play Sims4 or watch a movie.

I tend to get lost in things sometimes at night, and time flies by just like during the day, but when I wake up in the morning, I never want to get up. But I treasure being up during the day when I’m off work.

Since working nights, I’m up at odd hours, which has helped me love nights even more. Even when I should be sleeping, I can’t help but stay up a little longer when it’s quiet throughout the house.

What are your feelings about eating meat?

My feelings about eating meat?

I eat meat but not as much as I used to, as my sister has helped my family to eat better for the last couple of months.

So I love meat, but it’s not something I want to eat all the time now as I feel healthier.

So, I realized eating less meat has been good for me. I hope to keep being good because my gut and mind have been clear, and I’m lighter and hopeful for a change that will stick with me.


In these

Moments, the excitement of the holiday seems so innocent and simple.

The twinkle lights still excite you as you wait for more lights to be put up around the neighborhood.

Sometimes, the lights guide us back to the spirit of Christmas we may have lost when life wasn’t as innocent as we thought.

Even when the time spent with your favorite people is all you crave this time of year.

I think we all feel the joy and excitement this time of year as the sadness and joy of another year come to an End and the hope the next year will be better.

As spends by with 22 days until Christmas and 28 days until this year ends and a new year begins.

I’m trying to say in the present, but time seems to fly by with no reason to slow down anytime soon.
