If you are a celebrating a joyous Christmas with family and friends - I wish a you a day full of laughter. Hug those that are with you and reflect on how blessed and lucky you are.
If you are feeling sadness today - Acknowledge it but don't dwell on it. Try to accept that you can't change the source of your sadness. Perhaps treating it like any other day will help. Distract yourself or reach out to others in person or via phone or the internet.
If you've been overwhelmed and stressed with the holiday season (like me) - Rejoice and celebrate that the pressures are now gone (or soon will be). Look forward to the new year and all the opportunity that it brings.
If you are alone today - Please accept this virtual hug! I wish I could there in person to keep you company and put on a smile on your face.
I would like to wish everyone many blessings today! May we celebrate our friendship.
Hug the ones your with, honor the ones who have left us and creative positive memories for the next generation!
