In my post on Thursday, I talked about how the "winter blues" have been hitting me in recent years and how I'm hoping that getting back to/sticking with my blog will help with that this year. It's definitely a good start but I think that other efforts need to be made too.
I've started by getting out my Christmas decorations. Is there anything more cheerful than seeing decorations peeking out from your shelves and hanging on your door? I think not! The tree decorating party with DJ Chick and all of our kids is next weekend and I'm getting excited for it so I must get out a recipe book or two so I can decide what to serve. Nothing lifts your mood better than planning a party.
The other thing that I've been thinking about is perhaps colouring my hair a nice, sassy red for the holiday parties. I used to colour it years ago but came to a point where I was ready for my own natural colour again. I think that it's time for a change again! I know that hair colour is cosmetic and maybe I seem a little vain for considering it as a change in my life but I think that it's something that is more than "skin deep". When you look in the mirror and like what you're seeing, it makes you feel good; you hold your head a little higher and smile a little more. A small change can do so much for your outlook. If you can get that boost from a box bought at the pharmacy for less than twenty dollars, why not go for it.
Between playing with my hair (yes, I'll post pics!) and the festivities of the holidays, I figure that I'll be good for the month of December. January? Well, that may take more drastic measures……..
