Happy December 1st!! Is anyone else AMAZED that it is already December?? I feel like my sister and I were kayaking in Western Washington soaking up the sun… like a month ago!
But somehow the happiest time of the year truly is just around the corner – and I am certainly not going to be complaining about that! 😊
Amongst my excitement, I started to wonder what I could do to make every day up to Christmas really count – aka, get the full Christmas experience – even while in college preparing for finals. Scouring the internet, I found the post below (courtesy of lds.org) and LOVED it!
Side Note: Now I know I know, most of y’all aren’t apart of this faith – or perhaps any- and that is FINE! It’s message speaks to everyone, regardless of personal beliefs and creed!
One of the things I loved most about the video is that it reminded me of the importance of each and every day (there it is again – carpe diem!), and the power that each of us has to make a difference! So… I’m in! I will be taking the 25 days of Christmas Challenge and will be posting one thing a day that I have done to make this season truly magical, along with the #thecarpediemlifestyle #lightoftheworld #lightuptheworld, I hope you will do the same, and post here as well!!
I am sure we all can agree that giving back to our loved ones, communities, and world is one of the most important things we can do!
So let’s light up our world together!
Let the smiles, laughter, and FUN commence!!! 😁
