It hasn’t felt like the most wonderful time of year, at least at work. Morale has been low and stress has been high, especially with all the breaking news. But, I decided not to let either get me down.
As I stood online to buy candy for my co-workers, I saw a beacon of light. No, it wasn’t the bright star described in the Bible. But, it was a sign of the season. I saw holiday decorations that filled my heart with glee.
I admit that I am a holiday purest. I prefer that each holiday gets its moment. No Thanksgiving decorations at Halloween. No Christmas decorations at Thanksgiving. And, I want stores to acknowledge non-Christian holidays with a section.
Anyway, when I saw light up headbands on the counter, I thought, why not buy one or three to make my co-workers smile. So, I’ve been wearing them as you can see in the photos.
For my birthday, last week, I sent out an image encouraging people to support authors like me. I asked my friends and family to buy my memoir, gift it, review it or just wish me well on my mission to help others find a path to better health. I just hope that each of you do something to make the season, year and days ahead brighter.
