Have you finished all of your shopping yet? I'm so jellie if you have, I'm still at it and probably will be until December 24th cuz there is always that one person you forget (sorry Mom!) So ‘tis the season to be jolly… or more like crazy, stressed and in major credit card debt, LOL!
Can you believe Thanksgiving is over already? November came and went so quickly but I do love the month of December. It contains my favorite holiday and my birthday so since I was born on the 12th of December in 19— (seriously so not telling my age) I'm going to give you my list of:
Sadia’s 12 Ways to Make the Most out of your Holiday Season!
#12 - I'M STUFFED LIKE A TURKEY
Before you start your holiday shopping take a few dollars and give it to charity. My favorites during this season are the Bowery Mission and Toys for Tots. Did you know it only takes a $1.59 to provide a meal for a person at the mission? We can find that in our sofa cushions or under the seat in our cars. If money is tight they accept food and clothing donations and at no cost, we can volunteer our time. When we help others it reminds us to be grateful for what we have and makes Thanksgiving last a bit longer. To provide a meal for someone who is hungry, a coat for someone who is cold and a toy for a child who has none, that is what this season is truly about.
#11 - YOU'LL SHOOT YOUR EYE OUT KID
The holidays are about so much more than gifts but if you are focused on the gift giving listen to what your recipient is asking for or needs. Sometimes we waste so much money on things we feel someone will love and then they open it and its bunny pajamas, or as they say in the movie “It’s a pink nightmare.”
#10 - FROSTY MY SNOWMAN
Soulmates and twin souls tend to suffer more during this time. It’s always best if you feel there may be some unresolved issues in your partner’s life or if you have struggled during these past few months to keep your expectations low during the holidays. Sometimes the energy between you will grow colder during this period and will warm up again after the season has passed.
#9 - ON THE FIRST DAY OF CHRISTMAS, MY TRUE LUV GAVE TO MEEEE…
Years ago, a client kept asking if she would be engaged by the holidays and would get so upset with me when I would say "I'm sorry no there is no thought of a ring." She refused to talk to him about her expectations since she felt he should know and she ended up with an electric wine bottle opener on Christmas morning and a big box of frustration since he was so proud of his purchase, lol. So, if it’s something that is that important to you, talk about it beforehand or as in dealing with the snowman keep your expectations very low so the disappointment is less.
