Because I know how to!
It's actually quite easy, all I need to do is to know that it already is perfect.
I need to clear my mind of pinterest images, stories from Shirley Hughes or Alison Uttely.
I need to switch off my brain from lists and plans.
I need to stop imagining what the perfect Christmas would look, feel, taste and smell like.
Because this is the perfect Christmas.
It is the perfect childhood Christmas for my children and it will only be perfect for my children if I give them permission to feel that perfection.
I must keep any anxieties or disappointments or negativity from entering my head, because the only bad thing about Christmas would be feelings like those. Whereas, if I know this is the perfect Christmas then it can be nothing other than...well perfect.
Happy Christmas to you all x
