Why I did this and what I learned...
My goal in doing the Season of Sanctification for Christmas was to bring the Spirit of Christmas into my life and lives of those around me. The biggest and loudest message I have received over this time has been of service. I do not feel I have done enough service and I hope that changes over the next few months.
1. Christmas Movie:
Honestly I am not ready to give up my Christmas movie or music for the season. I guess maybe another week (until New Year's) isn't completely outrageous but my family might mind.
This action did help bring the spirit of Christmas into my life and I will definitely add this to my list of things to do again...
2. House & Home:
I am still not adjusted to what I can and cannot do with my Fibromyalgia. This is causing me some annoyance. I did learn that I can live with things not being done exactly right as long as they are done. I am a perfectionist and by that I mean if I cannot do it right then I don't want to do it at all. That might be stupid but it's how I feel.
I am learning to flow better and be happy with what I get. I am also learning to readjust to my bodies new rhythms. I'm still figuring that out.
While my blogging has been able to stay fairly consistent my fiction and work writing is nil. I don't like that. I need to be more disciplined because it's what I want and who I want to be. This is an area that needs more focus and prioritizing!
I absolutely did not get enough service time in during this holiday season. Even my goals to have treats made did not happen. I got a bunch of stuff made but we never got it out and delivered. This bugs me. It bugs me every year.
I think when I do my Lenten Sanctification Season that I will make this a priority because it really brings the spirit of what and who Christ is to my life and that is what I need the most!
5. Pray & Read Scriptures:
This has not been a real challenge for me until recently and I can say that this hurdle has been overcome. I do feel that I am doing better at bringing the Spirit into my life on a daily basis. It's not perfect but it's getting there and that is what I consider Success!
