Well hello friends. My how this season has gotten away from me. I have purchased 3 gifts for people. That’s actually a great start for me because I am usually soooooo late at Christmas presents. The kind of late that it turns into January, then February, and then I eventually give people their Christmas presents on their birthdays because it’s just that late. And they never end up getting anything for Christmas.
I love getting gifts for people. It’s hard to tell because I don’t do it a whole lot, but I do really enjoy it. What usually stops me is money and time. I know that I don’t have to BUY gifts, but then that means I have to make something. Which is also satisfying and thoughtful, but then I need the time to do it. And it takes time to think something up too. BUT it also takes money to buy the necessary supplies. So….time and money either way. That doesn’t even include the time takes so shop for all the things, to wrap, and to mail if necessary. I HATE going to the post office. It honestly intimidates me and I don’t really know how to do anything there.
So, I don’t do gifts as often as I’d like to.
This kind of segues into today’s topic: What’s your biggest fear?
This not having time to buy presents thing isn’t just about not having free time. It’s about over-thinking the process and being indecisive and insecure about my ability to choose something my gift recipient will like.
And this scares me because I worry I will let opportunities to do good things for people or to have fun pass me by because of not allowing myself to just take a chance.
I have this thought of “life is getting away from me” quite often. And instead of just jumping in and catching up to it, I usually just sit down and feel overwhelmed.
I’m afraid I ruin my own chances of having a fulfilled life by worrying. And that worries me. Hahaha.
Tomorrow, I’m just gonna do something. When I think about it and it sounds like something I need to do or want to do, I’m just gonna do it.
Then I’m going to update you all with what I did.
What’s something you can say yes to this week?
