Holiday Blues 2017
I’m open for business in your neighborhood.
The blues is my business, and business is good. ~Larry McCray
Monday is Christmas. Once again, we are winding down a year with holiday doings. No matter your religion the entire planet will be celebrating the pagan aspects of the holiday at least. Heaps of ho ho ho – ha ha ha and pass the eggnog. You are expected to join in the festivities whether your heart is able or unable. It has been a year of extra. Many of us are worn out and have the sleepless nights to show for it. Make no mistake your thoughts, actions, beliefs, and politics reflect the Light in your Soul. If you see only darkness? You have good reason for it.
We like to think that we can fix anything that breaks.
This year, I took a refresher course in an old lesson I first learned in my teens. Somethings break and can never be put back together again. I revisited the knowledge that my time is better spent accepting the things that change. Change because of and in spite of the broken pieces that lay at my feet.
It doesn’t matter if you are alone or surrounded by a loud crowd at this time of year.
If you have lost more than you have gained, you will be grieving. If you have the actual nerve to be grieving while everyone else is celebrating? You will be made to feel like an ungrateful wretch either by the kool-aid drinking masses or the lone-witness within and deal with it you must.
1. Remind yourself daily that there is Light in the Darkness and soon you will be able to see it again.
2. If you need to skip out on all or some of the social commitments? Do it. Just do it without feeling guilty.
3. Meditate more. Pray less. And treat yourself to the peace and quiet you crave.
4. Move. Walk. Dance. Exercise. Heal.
5. Help someone else have a better day. No matter the gender or species. Give to a being that needs giving to.
Give with your heart.
Be grateful they are there to receive your care.
This where the blessings begin and the grieving ends.
Sending Love, Light, and Oceans of Bliss …
