But most of us have been off work and actually had a long weekend. Tuesday is our Monday this week. First day back to the grind and even though it's a short week, for some reason, they always seem harder to me!
So - here's a little inspiration for the week!
My Christmas gift to you :)
I hope everyone had a wonderfully happy and joy filled holiday Christmas weekend. I must say, Z and I must have been extra good this year because we were abundantly blessed!!!! And I'm not talking just gifts here - I mean, the good stuff. Love. Joy. Peace. Family. Friends. Blessings all around.
I was approached over the holidays by someone asking how I'm doing.... and after all I've been through, how I'm able to stay so positive?
Truth of the matter is this..
I can choose to lay in bed every night and drown in self loathing about what I have done wrong or how I've been done wrong...
I can choose to look back on the things that I did wrong, that brought me to the RIGHT place!
I can choose to look at all that I'm blessed with.
I can choose to look at all that my future has to hold!
I make that choice daily.
And so should you!
I hope that you looked at your life through the Christmas holiday and thanked God above for all you are blessed with. I hope that you let yourself off the hook for just long enough to smile. I hope that for Christmas you gave yourself a clean slate of forgiveness (for yourself AND others) so that you can start 2012 without any negativity held over from 2011!
That is what I wish for each and every one of you for Christmas! :)
