I am really sitting here trying to find out how this year has gotten so close to closing like this? Like a whole year is soon over with. December signals change. It’s the time for snow, holidays, and family time for me. I also recognize December as the time to check in. I use this time to check in with my family, work and especially myself. What have I done that I need to be super happy with? I am dope! Acknowledging myself is just as important as making new goals. New goals are important, but not more important than making sure that I guard my mind as we approach 2019. I have been vigilant about mental health and self-care and I don’t plan to stop going forward.
As we enter this season that people tend to give to others, make sure that you do your part. Also plan to give to yourself in other ways:
Give yourself more patience
Give yourself more love
Give yourself more time
Give yourself more you
Happy Holidays to you and your family from ToiTime. May you continue to be the gift to others that you want others to be towards you.
Holiday time should be a great time and if you can do that with a select few, I encourage it. You don’t have to have a big spread but you should be with those who have a big heart!!
