Wow… They’re back! Like clockwork. We know they’re coming… we just don’t ever think they’re going to be here this quickly. But we are in the thick of it… and there’s no going back now.. even if we wanted to.
Yes, the Holidays are a wonderful time of peace, joy, reflection, food, drink and excessive spendation. Of course, we’re not the only ones spending our money… and they have their own cliff to go over… and they may… but right now, I’m focused on the Holiday Cliff.
Every year I take the proverbial leap of faith over the Holiday Cliff… and every year, one way or another, I seem to land on my feet. It may seem like an odd metaphor, but if you think about it… how often do we jump into the Holiday season knowing how everything is going to turn out, or whether there’s enough in the kitty, or if the presents will be well received… and so on. At best… rarely.
Five or ten years ago I wouldn’t have said this… but I now know that things always work out for good in one way or another. The trick is… you have to know and believe it in advance… which leads me to my favorite unoriginal (to me, that is) saying…
“When you change the way you look at things… the things you look at change.” ~ Dr. Wayne W. Dyer
Truthfully, folks… in my view… this is the best message I can convey in my wish that all of you enjoy this Holiday season… which is a choice we can all make… regardless of our circumstances!
