For me, this holiday season had a few unexpected turns- a reminder that many people often find themselves going through a variety of difficult circumstances around what we expect to be a cheerful time.
Through it all it’s important to remember that you are not alone. You don’t have to feel pressure to be happy and cheerful. Let yourself feel the emotions you need to feel. If you feel you need to slowdown, give yourself permission to do so.
As you make your way through the hustle and bustle, the ups and the downs, always remember to be kind to yourself and to others because you truly never know what anyone is struggling with.
Wishing you all a safe and comforting holiday. May it be filled with love and gratitude, and no matter your circumstance, may it be sprinkled with lots of laughter and joy.
