Hello lovely readers, I hope you are very well and enjoying the run-up to Christmas this year. For Day 7, I decided I would do something that I haven’t done for a very long time. I decided to write A Letter To Santa. Just in case, you know.
This year, there has been a lot of talk about writing to Santa. What with my niece and an additional four cherubs, that I spend my time with, there has been a lot of Christmas chatter regarding presents and wishes. Since it has been such a long time since I did something like this, I thought I would give it a go.
I can’t remember the last time I wrote to you. It was probably when I was about 10, asking for a range of things to amuse my creative little brain. I wish I could remember those things that I had wanted. I also wish I had kept a diary so that I could look back on who I was, how I have grown and who I have become. However, it seems I was one of those children who loved the idea of keeping those memories but I never stuck at it.
I have lovely Christmas memories of my childhood. Family round, the hand knitted stocking from my Nan, presents at the end of the bed and under the tree. Like many youngsters, Christmas was very much about gifts. These days I just like to have a good time. As with many of us, there are those that I can no longer see, but there are also memories of them that I can treasure forever.
This has been a year of great change for me and my Christmas wish this year is just for happiness and a lovely Christmas holiday period for those around me. I say ‘just’ but it is a big thing really. Regular readers of my blog and followers of my YouTube Channel will know that it is my main wish in my life; something I actively focus on. I work hard at happiness and try to do things that ease the trials of modern life. Sometimes life takes us in a direction we don’t expect and sometimes that direction leads others to think badly of us. Life can be frustrating and even more so when these things are unfair and beyond your control. Nevertheless, that is life for us and life is a journey. We can only make the best of what we have and know. I am confident that I am a good person and I know that I only want the best for everyone, which helps me to feel happy with who and how I am.
I’m still not quite sure of my plans for the Christmas period and where I will be and when. However, as long as it includes time with my friends and family I will happy. Therefore, this year, I don’t really need anything. I am very happy right now and grateful for the life I have. More than anything in the world I would like things to continue in this way. Yes, of course, it would be fantastic to start earning some money from my blogging/YouTube adventure. That would mean I can continue the journey further, but if that is on your list for next Christmas, I can be patient.
As you will know when you look at your map for Christmas Eve, my boxing day this year will be rather different. For the first time, it will be a second Christmas day and will be celebrating Christmas with new family members and four feisty youngsters who know you are watching. They, in the same way as I was, would love gifts and play time, fun, and games. For me though, I would just like a little bit of happy dust to sprinkle here and there. And, if I am on the very, very good list, then maybe the Urban Decay Naked Heat palette.
