It is yet again that time of the year…Festivities. We all love this season.It somehow just feels us with excitement and joy and it is beautiful. A time where we spend with loved ones. For some, it is when you catch up with the long not seen family members and friends. I am not sure of my excitement levels this season though.
This week in itself is quite short! It ends on Wednesday as Thursday my beloved country celebrates its golden Jubilee…50 years of Independence. That’s huge and I am totally proud to be Kenyan! The Government then decided to make Friday, the 13th, a public holiday as well; it only made sense…lol And so that is a long weekend right there but I have no idea of what I will do with it.It sets me thinking.
I wish I had someone to share these special days with. Okay, my friends are special and all but all of them seem to be occupied with their special someone as well. Lol. Y’all know what I’m talking about. That someone I can take a walk with at the national park, hand in hand enjoying the beautiful wildlife as we make silly jokes and build memories. And then for Christmas, someone to exchange gifts with and just be with. It has been a while since I had that person and this season just magnifies that need!
I know I am not alone in this and in wishing for someone but I have decided not to let it depress me. I will probably go to the park and visit my pet giraffe who lives there (I just love giraffes and if I could have one as a pet, happiness!!!!!!!) and I will get something else to do.Make a long time coming visit to a friend or something but what is for sure, I will definitely get something exciting to do!So, if you are out there and you do not have that someone, well, you really just need to focus on something else; something bigger than you and use your time wisely.No room for depression
December is happy holidays season for a reason; do not allow the presence or absence of someone or something take away the magic.
I think I also need to add that I will not settle; not just for any kind of man. I will stop wondering about when he will wake up and notice me, whoever ‘he’ is and I will focus on me. I will channel my efforts and energies to building myself and doing those things that I totally enjoy and just being comfortable by myself.I mean, if I cannot stand and enjoy my own company, how do I expect someone else to? Life is too short to wait for someone else to start living.
So, kick the holiday blues and invite the holidays magic and happiness and enjoy.
