Merry Christmas SOS Report Day 40

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.

3. Write:

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!

4. Serve:

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!
