Millions of men and women suffer from the BLUES during the Holidays!

Here are some fun ideas for beating the blues. 

It’s that time of year again. Many people enjoy celebrating the holidays during this time of year, but for many it’s a time of depression and anxiety, fear and isolation. There are many possible reasons why the holidays seem to create a feeling of the BLUES but the GREAT news is that there are ways to change the emotions that don’t feel so good. You are holding in your hand the most valuable tool you will every own, in transforming your feeling of having the blues into a feeling of gratitude and joy. Good tidings of comfort and joy! May they surround you this Holiday.

In a Season Materialized – Let’s go back to the basics.

When you were a child, did you have fun at Christmas, baking cookies for Santa and eagerly awaiting the sunrise Christmas morning when you could rush to the tree to see what gifts awaited you? That is a fantastic memory that can be brought back to life if you are ever feeling blue. Just think about finding the one thing you wanted so much appearing in your life. The “BLUES” are often caused by many things but one thing is for sure, they can be transformed into JOY if you will allow.

Sharing of YOU is also a great way to feel better. Here are some ideas for sharing of yourself during the holiday season: 

  1. Get Creative – Get out the glue and poster board and make your own Holiday Wish List, the tack it to the wall so you can see it every day.
  2. Send a Card – One of the best ways to reach out to those you love is to send a greeting card with all of the sweetness you can fill into the pages.
  3. Fruit Baskets – This is not only a health alternative to candy, but will surely make someone smile.

Did you know that smiles are always given back? If you smile today, you will receive love in return. It is our sincere hope that this blog post has helped you to feel better about the holidays when it really is a time to celebrate everything that is good in the world. Every breath we are given is a gift from above, and one to be cherished.


Happy Holidays from Our Family to Yours!

A Legacy of Appreciation

Earlier this month, I posted this quote on Facebook:

~ Surround yourself with people who know your worth.
You don’t need too many people to be happy,
just a few real ones who appreciate you for exactly who you are.

This mindset is part of why I choose to SHOW those I appreciate that they are important to me. I feel that I need to express to them, in some way, that I am glad to have them in my life and that the person they are and things they do are cherished.

Encouragement: A Work of He”art”

It is something that we all need from time to time — and when received we are thankful for the gift we have been given. A little encouragement can change a bad day into a good day and it can help someone change their outlook on something. It can even help someone to believe in themselves again.

Albert Schweitzer said it well when he said…

~In everyone’s life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit.
