During this holiday season, many of us can feel victimized by the losses and voids that exist in our lives. Our emotional response to this victimization can hinder us from recognizing and experiencing the good that God has for each of us; this can lead to sadness, depression, anger and a host of other undesired emotions.
I come to tell you my brother/sister that God only intends for us to receive and experience good even when circumstances seem to communicate something different. While finding the strength to see passed our woes in life, let us focus on the good that currently exists in our lives in the form of existing family/friends/loved ones, shelter, food, and all of the other wonderful blessings that God bestows on us, which we sometimes take for granted. As we focus on these things as opposed to that which we do not or no longer have, we change the atmosphere which changes the energy which attracts more positivity to come our way. If we do this daily, getting in the Holiday Spirit will become increasingly more easy to do. It’s merely a matter of focusing on the good instead of the bad to truly create Happy Holidays.
