I’ve been looking forward to Christmas this year. Although mental health has took a downward turn the last few months I’ve actually felt better then I did last year.
I’ve been kinder to myself this year and not expected too much from myself. I think that it helped me enjoy the day more.
I waited for the kids to wake up with the excitement of seeing them open their presents and they eventually woke up at 7. They opened the stockings and my eldest got his present from Eddie the elf that’s been playing tricks on him this month. Their little faces when they saw the mountain of presents was priceless.
I cooked and ate a full dinner at lunch time with no pressure on myself I too my time asked for help when it was needed and my god I can cook. It was lovely, Everyone enjoyed their meal.
I’ve spent the day running around like a blue arse fly but it kept anxiety and depression at bay for this one magical day. For this one day I was the mum I want to be all the time to my children not on edge but relaxed. Everything was taken in its stride today.
Hope everyone has had a lovely day. Merry Christmas everyone 🎅🏻⛄️❄️
