13 Quotes To Get You Through The (NotSoMagical) December Moments

by: kiara, art host

It’s December and it’s dawned on some of us that Christmas is right around the corner, better yet, 2018 is literally a few blocks away. It could be a stressful time & the pressure can get to us. We can get so wrapped up with everything going on that we don’t let ourselves enjoy the final moments of the year.

The crisp air of December

the love exchanged through gifts

& the beauty of endings.

The rush of the holidays could leave us drained & unaware of the magic that’s occurring right in front of us. Take a moment for yourself today and get lost in the simple things. 

Here’s a list of quotes to get you centered & remind you that the end doesn’t have to be daunting & new beginnings shouldn’t scare you but inspire you. 

The best time for new beginnings is now

“But the real world is also never enough money, and never enough time, and never enough talent, or recognition, or love, or contentedness. The real world is compromise.” Laura Jane Williams

“Remember this December, that love weighs more than gold!” Josephine Bacon

“Give yourself the gift of forgiveness & understanding." -Kiara Batista

“One of the most tragic things i know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon instead of enjoying the roses that are blooming outside our windows today.” Dale Carnegie

you are made of stardust and wishes and magical things

Activity: Pick your favorite quote and write in your journal page, over and over and over again, with a different lettering style each time. Color the words and bring the background to life with little doodles. Do this when you need a break or when you feel a little stuck. Watching a page come to life can be the ultimate mood shifter. Make time for yourself, give yourself the space to create.
