ARE YOU HAPPY?
I hope everyone is saying yes. Now that we are approaching the holiday season, it can bring on a lot of stress, depression, and anxiety. Those are not things that make for a happy life.
Please remember that no matter what our religion. our ethnicity, our country of origin, or our language - we all have similar emotions and needs. We all want to be happy. We all want a stress free life. We all just need our family and friends.
It is very important to periodically reflect back on your life and your priorities. Is your vision the same as it was 20 years ago, 10 years ago, or even last year? Do you know what changes you might need to make for a happier future? Maybe you just need to simplify.
I remember having visions of grandeur when I was younger about everything! I could conquer the world! I wanted my holidays to be perfect in every way, I wanted to buy the best for everyone, and I wanted everyone to be happy.
TODAY - I go with the flow! A perfect holiday is ANY that I am blessed to have. The food is kept simple, the gifts are homemade, and I am thrilled just getting to spend time with loved ones. No gifts necessary.
I hope you sit back and reflect on what really makes you happy. I bet it isn't money or gifts. I bet it's family, friends and relationships. Once in a while - we all need a reminder of that.
Make this year's holidays the best ones you have ever had - BUT without the stress and anxiety.
Eat what you have or what someone brings, worry less about gifts and money, spend time together and BREATHE and ENJOY.
Keep it simple and BE HAPPY!!!!
