Holidays are Painful

I really don’t like the holidays, I always feel depressed and moody. Opting out is in my best interest, but I also don’t want to hurt any friends or family members feelings… so it is always a balancing act that adds to the stress, ugh 😑 Once Christmas is over I feel a huge sense of relief and start getting excited about starting a new year. I love the feeling of a new year, a bright shining beginning with so many possibilities. It is my favorite holiday! I can take or leave the actual New Years Eve party, it is the actual turn of the calendar page that excites. I revel in the ritual of reflecting on the previous year’s accomplishments, challenges, heartbreaks, joys, lessons learned. I also spend some time identifying what I need to let go of and what I will carry forward with me into the next year. But my favorite part is making a New Years resolution! I try to pick something challenging, but attainable. Nothing earth shattering, just something personal. 99% of the resolutions stick and actually become permanent habits in my life…. so I am meditating on this year’s resolution and will share it when it is fully formed. If you are doing a similar thing, remember this is supposed to be fun and good for you at the same time 😍
