Are You Stressed During The Holidays?
How are you feeling during this time of year? Are you stressed out because there are only a few shopping days left before Christmas? Are you thinking, I can’t believe it’s the end of 2011? Are you worried about the future?
Take Time For Yourself
I am seeing and feeling very interesting emotions occurring during this holiday season as 2011 comes to an end. Many changes have taken place this year and they are causing our emotions to feel “out of control”. There are many reasons why we are feeling this way, however, I would like to encourage you to take some time for yourself and just “quiet your mind”. I know what your saying “Kellie, are you crazy? I have so much to do!” And believe me, I do know, however, aren’t the holidays suppose to be a time to enjoy and be with the family and friends who you love?
What Does The Holidays Mean To You?
Please take the time and ask yourself what the meaning of Christmas and the Holidays is to you? What’s the reason we celebrate this joyous occasion? Sometimes the commercialization of a holiday tends to overshadow the meaning behind why it became a holiday to begin with.
After I left my job, I realized I missed the true meaning of Christmas and missed cherishing the time with family and friends who I love. As the years go by, I started to realize that next year, some of my family and friends may not be here for the next holiday and I really started to cherish “the now” time with everyone I am with. I share this with you because we have lost very close friends unexpectedly who were very young in age.
During this holiday season please take time for yourself, and the ones you love dearly. You are a very special person and you are loved much more than you will ever know. Give love and allow yourself to receive love. This will be the greatest gift you can give to yourself. I would like to share a very special video with you and I hope you will take a couple of minutes to watch it.
How do you feel after watching that special video? I felt so special when I received this video for the first time and I realized it was true. There’s a saying which goes “Yesterday’s history, Tomorrow’s a mystery, Today’s the only gift, that’s why they call it ‘The Present’ “. So cherish this wonderful season and give yourself the greatest gift ever!
