Simplicity and Christmas

colours 3

Love, love, love this picture and cannot remember where I found it!  It could never be called cluttered or a mess of colour, it simply flows.

It’s coordinated, soft and flimsy.

Yet too much to unpick. Like the cluttered brain of two days before Christmas. 

About now you may have decided to go with the flow, what we don’t have we won’t miss; what you failed to find on the supermarket shelf, you simply won’t be eating this year!

‘Simplicity can mean half witted or naïve.’, but you are not that….

Simplicity can be Best.

Too much hype around having the correct meal to present on Christmas day is often overdone.  What about the year, you woke up after your afternoon nap on Christmas day and realized the parsnips had been left out completely, you’d forgotten to cook then!

Did anyone miss them? No.

Christmas day is cluttered with “too much”, but we love that clutter and tend to automatically go over the top, spoil the already too spoilt people we love.

Don’t let trying to be too perfect spoil the happy family time this year; don’t regret what you did not buy or could not buy, enjoy what little you have and be grateful for the day.  A day of celebration, peace, love and joy.

I wish just this, to all who read my words today.

Happy Christmas and a Peaceful New Year where ever you are.


Grateful for the Day. on Warm Heart Wednesday.

    How lovely – and beautifully put. We are all to blame trying to make it perfect. And you are right we should go with the flow more xxx
