December has arrived.
A month of religious holidays and traditions. A month of over indulgence - food, drink, spending money or all three.
The last month of the year is known to spark depression and lonliness in some people. They read posts and see pictures on social media of parties, friends and family gatherings and tend to compare their lives with others. Whenever we compare, our lives never measure up.
Rarely do people post the bad hair days, arguments, their own “less than” feelings and lonliness. Life is bittersweet, a mixture of joy and sadness. During this month of holidays people deal with cancer, with loss, unemployment and an array of other life issues.
Happy holiday or happy “any day” is a state of mind, an attitude. Think gratitude rather than poor me. There is always something to be grateful for. Always start a gratitude list with being able to take a breath, with or without an aid, and continue on.
Volunteer and help someone else have a happy “any day”. Start journaling and discover what will help you to have a happy “any day”. Sending everyone reading best wishes for a happy “any day”.
