As soon as that calendar page turned, I’m suddenly too excited for Christmas! Is it a little premature? Maybe. But I can’t help it (also I’ve explained in past blogs about how Christmas season starts September where I’m from so I’d say we’re a little late now! Haha) No more “where to find Gizel” on the remaining days of the year as I’ve used up all of my vacation days, and I am staying put in this beautiful Christmas town.


I’ve had my fair share of my desperate attempts to let my friends and family all come visit me. I send pictures of this beautiful place, the view from my window, and tell them stories about the celebrities I meet during the winter season. Haha! It’s quite exciting. Maybe the possibility of skiing may be of interest to them, but that’s not something I know how to do. That is why this year, I am finally opening myself up to learning a snowsport. I had so many opportunities last season, but I gave so many excuses. I AM living in a ski-resort-town after all, so might as well give it a try right? My actual backyard is literally a cross-country track.


In light of this new month, I am finally accepting all of these changes in my life. And no, it’s not a “new year, new me” sort of thing. It’s just me growing again, and improving myself even more. There’s been quite a couple of changes happening in my life right now that I am fully opening myself up to. Honestly, it’s not just this month but the past couple of months: Redecorating my place, meeting new people, caring for plants, caring for myself, and finally agreeing to give snow sports a chance. I promise I will try this season! (If I don’t, I am giving you permission to smack me in the head.)

I’ve been very flexible and accepting of all these recent changes, that I feel like I don’t know who I am anymore, but in a good way. I’m honestly so proud of who I’m becoming. I am extremely and genuinely happy to be at this stage of my life and I just want to say “Thank you” To everyone in my life right now who’s giving me a chance, to the universe for the opportunities I’m given, and to myself for finally allowing good things to happen to me. Thank you.


xx Gizel
