If I had to list what I liked about the holidays I would have to say “so many things”. What about you? What’s on your list? Here are some of my favorite things: music, weather, night light, fashion, sales, and the feeling of the new beginning.
The outfit I’m wearing today in this post really represents how I feel about the holiday season. I went out last week and took this photoshoot with my husband in the evening. By the time we arrived at our spot, there was no sunlight anymore. We were worried at first but the second we started the photoshoot, it turned out to be so much fun and I LOVE the pictures a lot.
The weather was cool, my pink sweater(similar here and here) and red skirt added a more fun and holiday spirit to the pictures. Not to mention the beautiful string lights in the background that made the pictures come out so fabulous. And my husband is getting better at photographing me, isn’t he? ☺️ I don’t complain as much about my pictures like I used to do any more. ?
And talking about the holiday season, have you ever wondered why we need to have it? Apart from the religious aspect, don’t you think there is some meaning behind it? Why do you feel so happy every time the holidays come around? Good question, right?
The other day, I was wondering why we need to have 365 days in a year. Besides the obvious reason the time that the Earth takes to go around the Sun which is approximately 365.25 days. And every four years we have to add one extra day (leap year), just to make those years feel a little bit more special, why is that? The scientific reason behind it is to make up those 4 missing quarters. But the reasons behind it, I think, is to help motivate us in everything we do.
But why do we need to have holiday seasons, though? So today I came up with this post to talk about the 5 Reminders Of Having The Holiday Season. All of them are from my opinion, if you have any specific reason you can think of, feel free to let me know in the comments.
Reminder #1 Life is short.
The new holiday season again means that time has passed by another cycle. The more holidays you are going through the less time you have in your life. Not that it’s to make you feel depressed but actually do the opposite, it helps to motivate you to do something good and valuable for both yourself and other people. Spend your time wisely because you can’t take it back and relive it again. And before you know it the next holiday season will be here again.
Reminder #2 To have Hope and faith
The holiday season is also the symbol of hope and faith. This time of the year you are sure to feel something good is about to come to your life. The season has brought joy, hope, and faith to all of us. And within yourself, you might raise your hopes higher than other times of the year and you have reminded yourself that you have to have faith in yourself in order to move on with your life.
Reminder #3 Enjoy the time with your loved ones.
The holiday season is not the time to only be all about you. It’s not the time that you should only think about yourself. This season has brought people who matter together. Your family, your friends, and everyone else that loves you and you love. It’s the time that you should really spend and enjoy it with those wonderful people.
Reminder #4 Try harder
The holiday season is a yearly present for everyone of us. Because you’ve been through so much during the year, you might not have achieve everything you wanted to achieve but the holiday season has come to help cope with that.
You might have felt down for sometime and been waiting for the joy to come in. The holiday season helps cheer you up and to tell you not to give up on whatever you’re doing. You have to try harder to accomplish your tasks. In the end, the holiday seasons will be waiting for you to celebrate your success.
Reminder #5 You can Pause and Start again
The holiday season is the best time to pause and rethink. You can use this time to learn from your past experience and learn from all of the mistakes you have made earlier in the year. Use this time to recharge your energy, plan your new journey and get ready for the next chapter of your life. Please remember that you can pause but never ever give up.
That’s it for my theory of all the reasons behind the holiday season. I hope you find this post helpful and it keeps you going. I wanted you to keep these 5 reasons in mind and make the most out of your holidays and your life. Like I mentioned, life is too short so you better spend it happily, hope for the best and have faith in yourself, try harder if you think you haven’t tried hard enough, spend your time with your loved ones, they won’t be here forever either and lastly if you feel down you can pause, think it over and start your journey again.
