Holidays Can Be Tough...Change Your Paradyme




Holidays can be an emotional landmine for a lot of people. Acknowledge your feelings, but stand in that ocean of emotions without moving, and you値l drown. Analyze and change the situation. Use the lessons from the past to live better and move on. You can even change how you look at the past by changing your paradyme. The more you focus on the positives, use humor, and learn to find ways to be a better person, the more positive your attitude and the happier you値l be.

  • Very true! A great reminder, Thanks. Holidays can be a stressful time. . . . especially when your hubby decides to do a major remodel of the house a week before Thanksgiving . . . One that involves taking the kitchen down to the studs, moving and rebuilding a bathroom, and the den! Kitchen will be completed sometime in January. Oh, did I mention company is coming for Christmas? LOL!!! emoticon - by KMICHA
