For some of us today is not a day of Merriment and Delight.
It’s not fun happy or joyful.
In fact it’s been years (if ever) since you’ve felt Ye Olde Yuletide Spirit.
So if you’re one of those people who’s home alone at Christmas
Or surrounded by folks you don’t like.
If your stocking is full of coal – or not full at all…
If you’re usually a “Chrismas person” who has for some strange reason found yourself not having Holiday wonder this year…
There I said it.
It’s okay to feel bad and lonely and sad and conflicted on Christmas.
It’s okay to be alone, or broke, or disappointed.
It’s okay to feel a distant sort of melancholy or irritation, resentment and anger.
You don’t have to force yourself to put on a pretty, happy, jolly face today.
Christmas is just one day out of many. And believe you me – I’ve had more than my share of not so grande Holidays.
This year we waited too long and couldn’t find a Fresh Tree – so we didn’t put a Tree up. We really played with our Law of Detachment on that one.
It sucked. But it’s okay too.
One year there were no gifts – That also sucked, but it was okay.
There was a year I spent alone. But I got through it.
In just 16 hours – it’ll all be a memory and life will go on.
Here’s some cool things you can do- they’re fun. They’re free – and they might just be enough to brighten your mood if you want your mood brightened.
Play games on Facebook
Listen/Watch this music video (I can’t watch it without dancing)
Read other people’s confessions (playing the voyeur can be fun!)

Google yourself- be shocked or appalled

If you don’t want to feel better and you just want to be with your doldrums (hey, I used that word in a sentence) you have absolute and vibrant permission to do that too hun.
Have yourself whatever kinda Christmas you feel to have!
