Yesterday we bought and decorated our Christmas tree.
It was a lovely experience. We are in a new home for Christmas this year and getting a 7ft tree and seeing it in our lounge that we LOVE was just perfect!
We put a mixture of new and old decorations on the tree. The new ones I had been out shopping for with my niece during the day. That experience created many happy memories that we won’t forget.
As Noah and I hung the old decorations we came across beautiful ones that were gifts from previous years, and we remembered special times associated with them.
Although Mindfulness is very much about living in the moment it is also about slowing down and appreciating special moments that we are in. Just a small reminder which leads you to appreciate a special relationship can really add some magic and enjoyment at this time of year.
With this in mind some of our Christmas gifts this year are special decorations for special people.
