You don't want to play HOLIDAY? Allow Me to Enlighten You.
It saddens me, that with the tradition of three well-known family celebrations held in December… Christmas, Hanukkah, and Kwanzaa, too many people do not celebrate in this month. I read an article from Mcleanhospital.org stating… “according to the American Psychological Association, 38% of people surveyed, said their stress increased during the holiday season. This stress can lead to physical illness, depression, anxiety, and substance misuse. The reasons given: lack of time, financial pressure, gift-giving, and family gatherings, while Grief and Loss bring another level of sadness.
Please consider reaching out to me. One conversation could help you see what’s really important to you during this season. If not me, choose another professional. It would help to learn why this season triggers sadness in you, rather than true joy.
One day at a time is one way to look at each day, no matter the season. We cannot change yesterday, and tomorrow is not promised, so Today is all we have. We’ve all experienced a complete shift in our lives with all that’s happening around us, and I get it. It’s not an easy space to be in. So, what are the choices? Do you continue feeling sad and hope things get better? What you send out, comes back to you. You send sadness into the Universe and it comes back to you. So, start by focusing on what you’re grateful for and allow more gratefulness to come back to you.
What do you have to lose?
Rita’s Recommended Action Steps:
- Think about what makes you smile. One memory could totally make a difference.
- Think about what brings you joy, then close your eyes and relive it.
- Think about those less fortunate and reach out. December is a time for giving and it doesn’t have to cost you anything but your time
- Think about WHY you’re spending the money. Is it because you feel guilty, you want to impress someone, you feel pressured?
None of these excuses will matter in January. Ask yourself WHY!
I am Rita…speaking to your Spirit
My final recommendation is that you download our Holiday gift which you can benefit from all year. Angela has created a beautiful and peaceful meditation tape. She begins by saying “do not drive while listening”. Her words. her tone, the background music is medicinal…ENJOY!! I am so proud of her and I know you will be as well.
You are hearing it first. It will be on our website and YouTube channel next week.
Happy Holidays from us to you!!!
