“When they saw the star they shouted joyfully. As they came into the house and saw the child with Mary his mother, they bowed down and worshiped him. They opened their treasure boxes and gave him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh.”
Have you ever sunk into an your self and didn’t want to come out?? I mean being in your own space and enjoying it and didn’t see the need to communicate with others… it’s real and I get scared when I get there sometimes.
I mean it’s important to take time to yourself but it’s equally important to relate with others. No man is an island. So I took some time off to myself since Sunday evening to focus on some projects; both academic and business. The only company I had were the cast of ‘the blacklist’ (I started watching it last week and I’m almost sure I sound like Raymond Reddington when I chat with people now Hahahahha).
By the time I was done with all I had to do on Wednesday, I had to take out time to rest ‘Cos I had been awake most of the time from Monday till Wednesday morning and my head was beginning to hurt. I somehow couldn’t still sleep so I decided to take my phone out of airplane mood, go out and see what I could get for Christmas preparations. Boy oh boy! All I wanted to do was go back in my house the second I was out. I barely got anything before I went back home. I guess I got too comfortable with myself which is unacceptable because that is some Grinch behaviour and Christmas is here. Whatever it is I’m feeling, it’s definitely not the Christmas spirit I expected to be high on by now… maybe it’s because I’m away from my family this year unlike last year, I really don’t know but I definitely need to get my groove on Cos I feel like the grinch already.
I’m forcing the joy and giving that Christmas loving is a must. My friends who live around me made plans to have a Pyjamas Christmas party; love feast. Everyone will be there but then I have another friend who lives out of town who might want more company too.
I Mean, what would Jesus do? Go for the bigger love feast or the smaller one? I hope you aren’t like me still searching for your Christmas spirit. Make plans with friends, go out and force it if you have to, forget the issues of life and be merry. Jesus didn’t come all the way into this world for you to be joyless this season. He came that you may have joy and have it in full so MERRY CHRISTMAS mate… looking forward to sharing how my Christmas went with you guys…
