With a major holiday like Christmas coming up, it can be very easy to fall into stress and anxiety. But, at times like this, it's incredibly important to remember the true spirit of the holidays. They're meant to spread love and kindness, to give joy to others, and just to give in general. So don't let holiday related stress get you down; instead, focus on the true message of the holidays and fully embrace it. Enjoy the holidays for what they are, a time to give, embrace joy, and spend time with loved ones.
I know many of us have had to deal with teasing and harassment over the hobbies we dearly love. People may say you're "too old" to participate in certain hobbies. They may accuse you of being silly and childish for doing so. But, just remember, you should never feel ashamed of your hobbies. They are part of you and make up who you are as a person. Don't feel ashamed, embarrassed, or sorry for the things you love. Continue doing what you love, always.
You may feel like all your hard work doesn't count towards anything. You may think your hobbies are unproductive and a waste of time. But, your hobbies are completely valid as long as you enjoy them. Something doesn't have to be productive to be worthwhile. And although it may not always feel like it, your work is appreciated. Somewhere in the world, there are people who care about what you do and the effort you put into it. Just remember, the things you do, the hobbies you enjoy, and the work you create, it all matters.
For today's Feline Friday post, I decided to do something a bit different! I recently discovered an awesome graphic design website called Stencil, and since then, I've been creating all kinds of little activity sheets. So, I made a special word jumble just for Feline Friday!
Well, I'm 23 years old today! I'm grateful just to be alive right now. And I'm looking forward to having a nice, relaxing day at home with my family! I'm hoping to do some activities I enjoy too, like reading and playing video games. However the day goes, I'm just happy to be here with my family and friends.
