Secrets of Success

"Difficult" Holidays



Some holidays are emotionally charged for some people, through lack of social support, negative memories, etc. I give myself permission to "re-translate" them! On Mothers' Day, I honour beloved teachers and professors who shaped and nurtured the person I have become. Food doesn't have to = love!

  • "parent's days" - both are difficult for me as I have issues with both of mine. I like this idea of defining them myself. There should be better cards out there! lol - by JUSTYNA7
  • Great idea - define the holidays your own way. :) - by SPARK-KELLI
    I am absolutely loving this !!!! As you know I have nobody apart from my Dad family wise and all my friends are internet only, so I spend all holidays either with my Dad or alone if he gets invited out. So holidays are nightmares for me, I like this idea, invent my own ! emoticon - by VEGANVICKIE
