In a time when it’s so easy to find darkness, we are hunting for the light. Yes, those Christmas bulbs can bring irresistible joy, but that isn’t the only light we’re searching for this season.
Laughter, pleasure, hugs and kisses. The light after the storm.
This month we don’t need any big accomplishments to serve as reason to smile. We’re going to celebrate the small things like they’re big. Let’s turn up just because our bills are paid. Let’s toast to making it through another stressful work week. Let’s get crunk (do people still say that?!) because … because we feel like it! Let’s find happiness because we deserve it.
Take the trip to see the family you’ve missed or celebrate by yourself because peace is bliss. Take your famous dish to the potluck or provide a meal for someone in need. Cuddle up with your loved ones in your living room or plan a trip to a place you haven’t been before. Buy everyone else gifts or gift yourself with all the things. Share recipes, couch space and good conversation with people who care. Or finally, be selfish in caring for yourself because you don’t do it enough.
What we’re trying to say is you’ve worked hard this year; you deserve to celebrate what you want, how you want. That’s why we’re focusing our content on celebrations this month. We’re acknowledging all the reasons to celebrate and all the ways to do it. We’re observing both traditional and nontraditional commemorations for things considered both important and unimportant.
It’s been a year full of reasons to be unhappy. Instead of submitting to the sadness where we can avoid it, let’s intentionally choose jubilee.
Get into the spirit of happiness with us. And take a shot for you.
