Ok, people come on, its the frickin holidays! Can you at least smile? I hate when people tell me to smile, but seriously this being an asshole is the new black is getting boring. It seems to happen earlier and earlier each year too. It used to be that people were stressed out and RUDE the week before the holidays but now it seems to start in late October.
The question that continues to live in my mind… does being mean to me make you feel better?
I sure hope so because it really sucks to be mistreated with no payoff. And NO it doesn’t make ME feel better to be an asshole back.
Today is December 2nd, last month of the year. Last chance to get it right (till the next). Can we at least try to be kind and compassionate? Just this month, hold your tongue, open a door for someone, SMILE. Do something that gives you NO payoff. It’s challenging but worth it.
Make it about someone else (in a good way), be generous and give with joy.
Change your thought process every morning to how amazing it is to be living through another holiday season. To see your children grow up, and all your hard work pay off.
Live. Live in the moment. Let it consume you, you will never get that moment back. Try to stay present, its amazing the things we miss when we allow ourselves to go into auto pilot.
You determine your day, your path, your life. Choose life and always choose love. Oh and start……right now….
