Happy holidays to you all. Whether you’re with family and friends or not, I hope you feel the spirit of love around you. Also, take out the time to be thankful for the small things. Last night I became terribly ill and could hardly move. Thankfully my mom was here to help me and I’m nearly back to being 100% myself today. Now is not the time to focus on everything wrong but, everything that is right. We are truly blessed even when we don’t acknowledge it. Here are a few reminders to help you get through this holiday season.
* Like the old saying goes, “It’s better to give than to receive.” It’s not about getting presents but giving what you have.
* Turn up the holiday music. Like many, I have no shame in playing holiday all through the year. Something about it makes can make you feel all tingly inside.
* If you’re not able to be with family and friends, pick up the phone and call, or send a holiday email. If you can’t see their faces at least you can hear their voices or receive a message back.
* If you have to work, don’t walk in looking all down. Spread joy to those you come in contact with. It makes the time there more bearable.
* Another idea if you’re spending the holidays alone, fix yourself a great dinner for one, rent a great holiday movie and snuggle up on the couch. Preferrably a Vince Vaughn one. He’s hilarious.
* Last but not least, remember this is a time to reflect on the birth of Christ. Just to know we have so much to be grateful for because He came into this world can change your mood.
Hope you all enjoy all the family, friends, holiday food and whatever else brings you joy this season. Much love to you all. 🙂
