The Mission: To List 5 Ways to Survive this Unhappy Holiday.

  1. Do What Makes You Happy. Whether you are forced to spend the holidays alone or with the smallest amount of people, do what makes you happy. Make the best of inevitably broken traditions and partake in a new, temporary activity. Be grateful for what you do have and where you are.
  2. Take Control of Your Emotions. Emotions are high. People are scared, angry, and lost. Don’t allow the negative emotions to control your mind, heart, or spirit. Remember that you have full control over how you perceive any situation.

Show Love to yourself, your family, your friends, your pets, your home… to everything.  Expressing your fondness for the people and things in your life will bring you back to your heart center.  Doing so will bring you in a higher vibration to reduce all of the other icky feelings this season may bring.

Center yourself by going within and focusing on your gratitude.


One thing to remember is that we are all in this together.  Despite our differences of opinions and beliefs, believe it or not, we are experiencing the same external circumstances.  However, how you handle these outside influences directly correlates to your inner peace, so choose wisely.
