So here we are…
Holiday season 2020!
I’ve got a mixed bag of feelings over here. So many things are different this year…many of you are likely echoing this sentiment.
I am allowing myself to feel the melancholy but I am also taking the steps to reframe all of the thoughts and emotions by separating them into things that I can control and things that I cannot (of which there are many this year).
In my mind, I have created a Gratitude Department and I find myself consistently sending so many feelings there for processing.
It turns out that once a thought/feeling goes there, it usually morphs/shifts and comes out better than when it went in…THE SERVICE HAS BEEN REALLY GOOD IN THIS DEPARTMENT LATELY!
The gatherings won’t be the same, the hype is not the same, the look is not even the same….BUT… different isn’t bad…it’s just different and if 2020 has taught me anything, it is to:
- Accept what is
- Go with the flow
- Be grateful for the good
Actively sending things to the Gratitude Department has proved to be a necessary life tool that has sooner than later taken on the status of being the sharpest tool in the shed!
