Sunday Scribblings prompt this week is "Guidance" I thought I'd share a few tips for single ladies at Christmas. One of my very favorite must dos at Christmas is visiting Art Knapps. The beauty of those luxurious trees is awe inspiring. As I drink in all the color and majesty I am filled with such, joy, hope and love! Everyone needs different thing to fill their vessel.....I need color, and creative inspiration! What do you need?
Tips for single ladies alone at Christmas
Treat yourself to something you have a hankering for, a new lap top, a nano, a lobster dinner, a piece of pie at that out of the way coffee shop! Indulge! Buy yourself a nice Christmas present something a bit extravagant like a piece of jewellery. Put a shot of liquor in your morning coffee Christmas day! Buy a good box of chocolates or an expensive wine! Take yourself to a movie you’ve been wanting to see! Buy a brand new housecoat or lounging pyjamas to wear Christmas eve! Put Christmas Carols on and sing along! Take yourself on a date, drive around and look at Christmas lights, then stop at a coffee shop with your lap top or a good book. Find a Christmas play or carol night to attend. Rent a pile of movies, or get netflix for Christmas eve! Make it special, think out of the box. If you’re healthy and so inclined to volunteer, do that! There is always grief amongst joy, sometimes we have to do for ourselves until life changes! If someone invites you somewhere you wouldn’t normally go, accept with no expectations! You may be surprised!
It can be hard to sit around watching everyone open piles of gifts when money is really tight. One year my daughter and I went to 3 holiday movies, then had tacos for dinner. We never told a soul our plans because we knew they'd feel sorry for us and invite us to Christmas dinner. We still talk about it with love and laughter as one of our favorite memories! Sometimes you have to do what works for you!
