Devotional Month | Day 25
I'm getting overwhelmed.
I usually make everyone Christmas gifts, but I left it a little late this year, plus decided to do a blanket, so I don't think I have time for everyone. I've cut down to four handmade gifts, but I also feel bad about not doing something for everyone else. Maybe I'll finish what I have and see what kind of time I have left and maybe fit some other small gifts in.
Plus I need to make gift lists for myself, my husband and my son so my relatives know what to get us. My son keeps insisting that it is “way, way to early” to even think about it and my husband and I don't really want anything. I mean, I do want things, but I know my relatives won't get them for me. A massive 25 card Year Ahead Tarot reading, complete with workbook? More prayer candles? Witchy books? Goddess statues? Not gonna happen.
Maybe I'll see if there are any crochet kits I want …
Meanwhile, my daily practice is helping me deal with the stress of work. Taking some time before work to pray & meditate helps me find that space again when faced with the entitled, angry idiots the people in this area turn into this time of year. This is supposed to be the season of giving, and everyone pulls this Jekyll & Hyde BS … and I'm trying to remind myself that it's their stress response, and they handle it badly. Retail is soul-sucking because everyone feeds off of everyone's stress, and it creates a low vibe vortex … rise above it. Don't focus on the low vibe customers, focus on the ones who don't sink into that vortex and rise above it with you. They are out there. Remember heavy things make a large splash and then sink, while lighter rocks can skip over the water with gentle ripples, but that splash draws more attention. Don't let it.
