Sadia’s 12 Ways to Make the Most out of your Holiday Season!
#8 - DONT BE SUCH A BINCH!
No one knows what you are going thru so we have to remember our energy effects everyone around us and of course that works both ways. We don't always know what someone else is going thru so if you have an encounter with a Binch keep an open mind and of course an open and forgiving heart!
#7 - THE BIG F BOMB!
Family comes in all shapes and sizes… loving, hurtful, kind and mean. Holidays can remind us of the importance of family and how much we are loved. Or, the holidays can throw salt on our wounds. If there is tension or unresolved issues with family members that is temporary and fixable, it helps to reach out and attempt a resolution before your holiday dinner to prevent conflict at the table.
#6 - "TUTTI A TAVOLA A MANGIARE"
In December we are not only celebrating Christmas, we have Hanukkah and Kwanza too. Look around at your neighbors and friends invite and welcome someone into your home for a holiday meal. It will become a tradition your children will follow.
#5 - I BELIEVE THE CHILDREN ARE OUR FUTURE
Every year before Santa came, my boys had to go thru their toys and clothes and bring what they didn’t play with anymore to the Angel Guardian Home that cared for foster kids. Our answer to young bullies was to invite them over for dinner and a playdate. When you make a mistake always take responsibility for it and when you are hurtful always say you are sorry. We follow these rules as parents too my oldest son looooooved when I had to say I was sorry, LOL! Holidays are a perfect time to teach children about love, family, respect and kindness to all people. Children learn what they live.
