The bottom line to me? Yeah, there’ s something to be said for simplifying, but there’s really something to be said for asking yourself, how much am I helping this by making it all about me?
If there’s one big pattern that I would like to look into for my Jubilee year of two thousand fourteen, it’s the idea that I’m really not at the center of anything except the stuff in my head. And I could have much better results in almost everything I do by asking what somebody else would like more from this rather than what I should be obsessing about.
And as for the holidays, I don’t know what to tell you, except that you just gotta get through it and make your peace.
And remember that it is supposed to be fun.
Whether it’s the holidays or whether it’s your social media remember this is supposed to be a comedy; it’s supposed to be fun.
And if you can’t find a way to be kind of light-hearted about it, there might be a better way to do it.
Go a little easier on yourself by not making it all about you, and then try to obsess less about whether you’ve got everything, and then worry more about whether you’ve got enough to get by for today.
(Not with everything. Yes, you wanna have money, you wanna pay bills and all that kind of stuff. That’s important.)
But, you’ll never have all of it.
To want to have all of it is the source of a lot of pain and dooka.
Merry Christmas, get your head out of your ass.
