The Holiday Season; the time to celebrate and rejoice... but let's not forget that some are experiencing tough times.
What about those facing financial hardships, foreclosure, not being able to pay rent or eviction. We've all heard about the teen who has been kicked out of their home with no where to go. Just imagine not having a home during the Holidays.
Think about the family, barely scraping by, living check to check, praying for a miracle so they can have a nice dinner or buy their kids presents this Holiday Season.
Let's not forget the spouse, the family member or friend who is taking care of a sick, loved one, unable to care for themselves. Think about the person who has a terminal illness and just wishing to be normal again and able to be mobile, to eat and taste food....just one more taste.
or worse, mourning over the loss of a loved one, especially to a terminal illness, an accident, or an act of violence.
My point is, while some live selfishly complaining about everything (like the ones who complain about the barista screwed up their venti, caramel macchiato with soy, triple pump, 200 degree order.) Really, is it that serious? Have less attitude and more gratitude!!
Stop and realize that so many people have it worse and don't take anything or anyone for granted.
See the positive in all aspects of your life, regardless of what challenges you are faced with in life. Be grateful; for being able to breath, move, see, smell, touch and taste.
Be grateful for the little things in life; the smiles, the hugs, the sun, moon and stars. Be thankful for all things big and small.
When you feel like everything is going wrong, take a deep breath and exhale.
