Hope to never grow up. Never stop learning. Never stop questioning. Never stop believing. Never stop exploring. Never take life too seriously. Never stay trapped in a life you hate. Never say never. But there’s a certain magic that our young selves see in the world that slowly loses its sparkle as we grow up. Never lose that magic. If you do, life loses its magic too.
The holiday season can sometimes be stressful. We want to have a magical time with our loved ones, and that can put a lot of pressure on ourselves to make it happen for everyone. To make it a little less stressful, we sometimes have to alter our perspective. Our expectations won’t always match our reality, and that’s ok. Sometimes the most memorable times are the spontaneous ones. Sometimes the most memorable times are the quietest ones. But most of all, the most memorable times depend on who we’re with. At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter what we do, but who we share this time with. It’s the ones we’re with who will ultimately make it magical. Let’s not stress about the holiday time. Let it happen naturally.
