The December Stretch
December I love you, but you come with some serious organization, time management, family, stress, fun, friends, and holiday cheer! The perfect storm of pure joy and overwhelm, at least for me. I love both movie genres that explore the romance of the holiday season and the sometimes comedic chaos that can go with it. A personal favorite is ‘Planes, Trains, and Automobiles’, John Hughes perfectly captured the pure chaos, urgency, and ultimately gratitude and happiness that comes with this time of the year.
This time of year I often find myself trying to figure out how to do better personally (as a wife, mother, daughter), professionally, and how to just be a better human. To be more grateful. I wish each of you the happiest end of year holiday cheer! May the New Year bring us health, joy, gratitude and love!
I leave you with this TED talk from Louie Schwartzberg, an award-winning cinematographer. The last 4 minutes of the talk shows his phenomenal short film ‘Gratitude and Happiness’, which reminds us of the precious gift of life and the beauty that is all around us.
