Hello friends … I thought I would take a pause from my 52 List Journal to talk and reflect on the year that will soon be coming to a close. As we get closer to Christmas I like to take this time to talk about the generosity of others. Do I wonder why people aren’t giving all year vs. just using a holiday as an excuse to spread some magic … yes … but I’m not going to point fingers. If that’s when you feel it, then hey … do you. Kindness is infectious if I show kindness towards someone … I get that right back, and it’s a beautiful thing.
I know the holiday tends to get everyone in a state of frenzy, but as I said in my last Sunday’s post … it’s time to slow down and enjoy the holiday with your friends and loved ones. I don’t want to look back on my holiday and remember everything that went wrong or everything that I didn’t get done, or that card I forgot to mail. I want keepsakes and memories that I can enjoy throughout my life.
This past week has been testing my feelings and emotions dealing with an issue with my bathroom that resulted in my not having the use of my shower for a whole week. Was I angry … yes … but by Gods grace, I’m thankful for my friend that let me use her facilities until mine was fixed.
I know that in life, and certain situations … I have to let things go because there will be other instances that are beyond my control and at that point, I have to give my anxiety, my fears, and my troubles over to God and just not worry about it. I pray for patience and I pray for peace. With this, I am given a release. I can’t be pissed at everything, and I refuse to be sad, so when I give those emotions over God and release them … I then have space for happiness and peace.
With that, I’ll close my post today. Thanks so much for visiting my blog. I will continue my 52 List for Happiness after the New Year which will pick up on list #23. Have a happy holiday season, be blessed and try to bless others with opportunity, kindness, and faith. – [Know Thyself] Wye
