Holiday Pep Talk
The holiday season is filled with get-togethers, lights, trees, food,
presents, and more. It can be a really fun time of year. But it can
also be a really hard time of year for many people, and for a variety of
reasons. I thought it was important to take a moment to remind people
not to put too much pressure on themselves during this holiday season.
The grass may LOOK greener on the other side, but nobody has the perfect
family, nobody is the perfect cook, nobody always does or says the
right things, and nobody has the perfect holiday. What we see is not
always other people’s reality. Instead of comparing your situation to
others, focus on the positives in your own life. And we all have them.
Beauty comes in many forms and is on the inside as well as the outside.
Just because someone else might not see your beauty doesn’t mean it’s
not there. What makes you who you are? What do you like about
yourself? Love is something we all need to feel. And it starts with
We need to be proactive around the holidays. Find an activity to do.
What do you enjoy doing? What do you like about the holidays? Doing
something for someone else can make us feel better, too. If we want
things to be good, we need to make them good. That will look different
everyone. It is important to take things one day at a time and to never
give up. The new year will be here before we know it and the holidays
will be a memory. We determine what kind of memory that will be. I
hope you find a way to make it special for yourself (and maybe for
somebody else, too).
Wishing you peace, joy, and love!
