Recently I saw a quote about how we need to stop glorifying busy. It stuck with me. I like to say this season is busy, this week is busy, this month is busy. But really, it’s only as busy as I make it. I control my schedule. I make plans. I say yes. I don’t say no enough.
So when we get a weekend where nothing is planned, nothing is scheduled, I drink it up. We stay in pajamas all day, eat breakfast late, and dinner early. I nap with my toddler. We watch Christmas shows on Netflix and leave mess clean-up for another day.
I ignore a desk piled with unopened mail and take pictures of my dirty dishes.
This weekend was full of laziness. It felt great to take a break from December’s crazy and just slow down. I got to sit and drink a cup of hot coffee made delicious with Coffee-mate’s Natural Bliss Sweet Cream. I didn’t abandon it halfway through because I got distracted or too busy. I just sat and sipped while I watched a reindeer movie with my girls.
Slowing down is something I have to do with intention. My friend Mindy apologized this week for not sending a Christmas card to us, but, she explained, it’s part of her goal to simplify and she just couldn’t doing it this year. I thought that sounded bold and wonderful and there was no reason to apologize.
It’s nice to sit and not have anywhere to go. Just being home is what I want right now. And enjoying a cup of coffee with Coffee-mate Natural Bliss makes that time home just a little bit sweeter. Made with only four ingredients, it brings simple pleasures with every cup. Which is what I want from life right now: simple, easy, happy moments. And to help spread the everyday, happy moments, Coffee-mate Natural Bliss is giving one lucky reader a prize pack that includes things to help you slow down and celebrate: a coffee tumbler, scented candle, biscotti cookies, a $5 Target gift card, and a Coffee-mate Natural Bliss coupon. This prize will help you recover nicely after the Christmas chaos and constant running around when it will be nice just to sit and relax.
