Here we are. It’s the 14th day of December, and Christmas Day is in another eleven days. This year I decided to get a jump on my shopping because every year I find myself in the position of putting it off and putting it off, and then in the final seconds, I buy everyone gift cards. I don’t want to be that guy this year.
My plan for 2020 holiday shopping goes like this; the first week of December I buy cards for everyone on my list. Christmas cards are the foundation of gift giving. In addition, I do all my internet shopping during the first week as well because as we all know, internet items must be delivered, and time is of the essence. No one wants to receive gifts after Christmas. Right? I mean what’s the point?
Week two is supply week. I buy tape, wrapping paper, ribbons, and gift boxes. The third Friday, December 18th, is gift week. I’ll be out shopping this weekend, and if I decide to grab a gift card for everyone as well, I’ll do it. And that’s pretty much it. Everyone’s gifts will be wrapped and under the tree by the 20th, which means I have four days to prepare myself and finalize any plans.
I don’t know about you, but for me, the holiday season goes way too fast. Before you know it you’re taking the tree down, rolling up the lights, and it’s New Year’s Day. Speaking of the New Year, don’t forget to make your resolutions. Pick a few things you would like to see come to fruition, and make 2021 all about it. I decided to draw a line. I’m separating 20 and 21, and I’m leaving any and all road blocks, mental blocks, and guilt behind. I’m releasing grudges, animosity, and personal issues. The sprinter blocks are setup, and I’m about to bolt into 2021 with a clean slate.
