3 Things to Consider this Festive Season

It is that week that temptation is everywhere we turn. The festive season is like a festival of temptation, the foods especially that you have been trying to steer clear from all year may be calling your name from the roof tops, yes, even that name that your friends do not know.

Before you say yes, remember that January is coming, and Aunt Flo is prepping her bag to cross over into 2019. With that in mind, we need to be careful. We know her ways, how easily upset she is, the tsunami-like tantrums she throws when things do not go her way.

Here are three things that I am taking into consideration as I celebrate Christmas this year.

Everything in moderation

A cheat-meal once in a while may not do much harm, depending on what the contents of the meal are. It is important to know your triggers, and try to avoid them. For the foods that cause minimal discomfort, remember to eat them in moderation. Don’t let the cheat meal become a week of lies that you will be paying for dearly in January.

Manage your energy

Christmas can be everything but relaxing, with the buzz of activity during the festive season, the people who want to see you and meals that need to be shared. As the carols fill the air, FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) is laced between the lines of invitation texts.  The truth is that you will still survive if you do not do everything or say ‘yes’ to every offer. Conserve your energy and take time to rest. Do something that refreshes you and fills your cup.

Love on yourself

Take time out and think about all the wonderful things that have happened this year. Reward yourself for your wins, forgive yourself for the way that you feel like you have failed. Open a new page and give yourself a chance to dream again.

Allow yourself to dream, rest and believe as you prepare for 2019.

Merry Christmas!

I am a wife to be, a beautiful bride making my way to the aisle. I have less than 6 months to get there, a day at a time. He put the 3 diamonds on my finger 6 months ago and so far so GREAT!!It has been the most beautiful journey ever. 'Life is a journey' are the wise words a friend shared with me that have made practical sense to me. I live my life a day at a time, with the end goal in mind. My resolve is enough to carry me through the day as for tomorrow and the days to come....I hear that HIS mercies are new every morning and should be quite sufficient to cover me in the days to come. So, I do not lack foresight...OH NO..In fact it is the opposite, I have just learnt to manage my expectations and enjoy my sphere of control:) I double up as the bride of Christ...He is my lover, my friend, at the center of my very existence. He is the reason I smile, the reason I have the strength to go the extra mile. He is my X-Factor, the reason that I will succeed and shine:) This blog is about my journey in life as I figure out my path to the aisle, to the other side of the wedding and most importantly to the other side of this very temporary life. When life overwhelms me,I wait for my sunshine:) as [caption id="attachment_6" align="alignnone" width="300" caption="I smile and wave!!"][/caption] Enjoy the journey of an extraordinary lady following her Master, fulfilling His mission and loving her mate!
