Let your calendar serve your own needs this year

Sometimes, a holiday is just a day.

So much of life happens off of the calendar.  Why the holiday, then?  If we unclicked the icon on our google calendar, the blue letters would disappear.  Just like that.

Sometimes letters are just letters.  “Words are just words.  Ways to capture the real thing.”  And to add to this from Ally Condie, I’d say, sometimes a holiday is a just a day.  A way to capture the real thing.  

Self-Care Tip – Let your calendar serve your own needs this year.

Question:  How does a holiday help you capture the real thing in what life is about for you? And when it doesn’t, how do you let it be?  How do you let it be just another day?  Please tell us your story.

How do you? And other holiday stress mysteries…

Good news. NAMI is having a meeting next Wednesday night in Hemet. Come join us! 😉
We will be discussing, how to handle holiday stress. Um, indeed.
Before I tell them that this is too stressful for me to think about alone, would you tell me how you handle holiday stress?…

Gratefully, your own,

I want to meet you on a narrow path.  A trail that only we can fit so we bump into each other often.  We apologize in turns until finally the collisions become familiar to us both and we accept that you and I are not alone.  Less space so we bang along, is just what I am and was hoping for.


Happy Thanks-Giving my friend.  I am thankful for you.

Self-care tip – allow the space to bring you into company and connection.  You are not alone.
