It's so easy to get caught up in the bad things. The bills, the responsibilities, the troubled relationships, the injuries, the "why me"'s, etc. If you sit in that arena then you will drown under massive waves of "bad". It's just so easy. It's not that it's not real. It is all real stuff. But it comes down to how you deal with it. And how you add goodness to your life to brighten up those dark moments. We have all done it. Bought presents just to buy them. They don't "mean" anything really other than another box under the tree. Well, maybe the normal routine of just buying a bunch of stuff just to wrap and give isn't the answer. There is an idea of quality over quantity so instead of trying to fill the space under the tree, go for the one important one, or meaningful one. Maybe you need to hit a reset button for yourself during the holidays. Think about doing something to recharge yourself. Go hiking, climb a mountain, go surfing, watch the sunrise or the sunset at the beach. Take a moment to reflect on the good things around you. Take time with loved ones. Just play. Laugh. Tickle fight. Sit and smell the smells of the holidays. See how amazing everything looks. And enjoying this for what it is, not for how it doesn't compare to some other mental vision of the holiday, or even how it has been in the past. This doesn't change many of the situations. It doesn't add more money or give more time. But it does put you in a better frame of mind to handle all the things around you. When you are in a better mindset, you will be able to think better, plan better, be more creative, and better at dealing with the things going on around you. We are always better when we are happier. And since we get to choose how we react and respond to the things around us, we get to choose to be happier or not. Happiness and Joyfulness are much more fun and enjoyable waves. Ride them this season!!:)
