Winter blues

1235

Can you believe Christmas is this week?! I seriously can’t believe that 2015 will be over in a couple of weeks. Christmas is my absolute favorite holiday and I love it, but it can be very intimidating too. Like, what did I do with all this time!? (please tell me that you can relate).

Personally all I can think about is, what a year this was! I was able to do so many things that I never imagined I would when the year started. I met new people who became great and special friends. I was lucky to spend one more year surrounded by old friends and new great ones. I accomplished goals and made new ones. I had to go through some hard stuff that made me learn valuable lessons and that made me realize what really matters in this life. I can truly say that this year was the most challenging and the most wonderful I’ve ever had so far 🙂 .

So the winter blues are basically nonexistent because I’m finishing this year with happiness and gratitude and love in my heart. What else does one need? To finish I’d like to share this truth I came across just yesterday, which was beautifully worded by the amazing Kelly Jensen:

“When we are grateful for what we have, what we have becomes enough.” @kellyejensen

Happy Holidays everyone! Much love,
Diana

Can you believe December is here? I can’t. December is my favorite month because there’s a spirit of unity that prevails everywhere. I love the lights and the carols and just all Christmas things. December can also mean another thing… snow (if you live in a place where snow it’s just expected in winter months). Snow is a beautiful thing if you are inside a building with a hot beverage in your hands. It’s not such a wonderful thing when you have to glide walk to class in the slippery sidewalks at 7:30 a.m.

In any case, I’ve decorated my apartment and I just can’t get enough of the Christmas decorations. It has been absolutely the best coming home at night to find the tree lights on <3. The semester is almost over and I’m so happy and so stressed about it. Finals are just one week away and I really need to get my study mode on (but after Thanksgiving break I just can’t find energy to even open my books 🙂 ).

The thought of Christmas break is the only thing that has kept me going. Is it possible to skip the next two weeks and fast forward to Christmas Eve? No? Fine… Then I’m just going to go study with my Christmas music playing in the background. That should make it more jolly and fun, right? (Don’t burst my bubble of h) 🙂
