Today was one of the most ridiculous days, start to finish. So many things didn't go according to plan, so many sassy mouths and surly attitudes (and from not kids!)...it makes me want to look forward to the end of this "season of loving togetherness and giving" so people will calm down about twelve notches.
And then, I paused at the end of this long, crazy day. I remembered how many of the bloggers I enjoy have paused to take a bokeh snap of their Christmas trees, so in that moment I decided to do the same.
So beautiful. I felt the stress melt away.
Amateur photography as a metaphor?
Stop fussing about all those details. Let the focus shift and blur.
All those worries and strains and rudeness issues other people are having don't have to be my problem. This season can be as it is intended to be, if only we just pause and remember.
