You’ve heard the cliche’, it is the time for giving. The time for others. Well, as important as that is, make sure you take care of yourself and your family too. These are undoubtedly hard times. But there is good all around us.
My favorite movie around this time is “Love Actually.” It sums up this season in it’s opening monologue with the statement that “Love Actually is all around.” I LOVE that statement. It’s there, you just need to look for it. If you’re open to it, if you look for it, you’ll find it.
If you’ve found it, try to share it. Don’t force it, but put it out there. Good vibes abound. I know, I know…there is a lot of stress during the holiday season. ALL the more reason to focus on the little things that make your life happy. No matter how much people try to deny it, there ARE things worth living for….though through the stresses of the time and the memories that abound during this season, they can close themselves off. If you know someone like this, be there to comfort. If you ARE one of these people, realize that people have the best intentions when they try to approach you.
A friend of mine posted on Facebook “Can i just have a ‘do over’ today?!” to which I replied “Yep! Most of us call it ‘tomorrow’! :)”
Very simply….tomorrow is our chance to make right what went ‘wrong’ today. Expand it….next year is our chance to make right what went ‘wrong’ today. Okay, that’s a bit grandiose…how about, next year is our chance to improve upon our lives. How?
Well, if you’ve been reading this blog, you know the answer to that….
