LushLunes: The Moments

It's LushLunes and there's so much going on for the Holidays! I celebrated my birthday yesterday and really enjoyed myself during this crazily wonderful time of year.

Che gave me a fun birthday weekend (I'm not the birthday weekend type, celebrating several days in a row, but I let myself be pampered)...  I even opened presents at midnight!  

opening Birthday presents!

Then on the big day, I spent the majority of the day cleaning my place while listening to merengue, preparing for the intimate party that evening.  On the actual evening of my birthday I had a great get together with family and friends, enjoying every moment. I just felt so grateful to be at this point in my life, surrounded by incredible people. That's the lesson here, and of course your mission.

With Noche Buena coming up, Christmas, and New Years... family and friends come together with food, gifts, dancing... and sometimes it can feel chaotic. And it's not supposed to be.

Today is the day to give yourself at least 5 minutes of a breather. Give yourself at least five minutes to recount how thankful you are for just being! And remember to do this time and again over the next two weeks if it tends to feel overwhelming. 

Remember that it's about enjoying the moments. Embracing the present and not worrying too much about tomorrow

This will be the last LushLunes for 2011 so make it count my deep thinkers!!! Have a wonderful Holiday and a kick-ass start to 2012!!!!
