If you’re like me, you’d love to be DONE with Christmas preparations by the end of this week. You’d love to have your lists complete, so you can settle in for mostly quiet, at home traditions and celebrations with family and friends. This means, you likely have a TON to accomplish this week!
Remember that my *sprinkles* page is all about adding easy everyday joy to your busy life. This week, my *sprinkle* this week is for YOU.
Sprinkle No. 11
This is what I need you to do: Tie a jingle bell (or two) on at least one pair of your shoes. As you “run around” in productive preparations, allow yourself to hear the jingle-jingle and remember that only YOU can make your spirit bright.
The oft-sung lyrics to Jingle Bells, talk of bells on bobtails that make spirits bright. I don’t have a team of horses to pull me around, but I do have two feet that will be moving fast this week and I believe bells attached to my shoes might just remind me to keep my spirit bright and happy amidst all the hustle and bustle.
If there is NO way you can bring yourself to tie bells on your shoes (like I did), then put a few in your pocket or purse and when you bump into them you’ll have the same opportunity to pause, look around, smile and intentionally brighten your spirit.
9 Days ’til Christmas … You can do it!
