CHRISTMAS BLESSINGS

CHRISTMAS BLESSINGS

Thanksgiving has come and gone. You survived. Christmas is fast approaching, and you will survive that too. If you have been divorced for several years, you probably have mastered getting through the holidays. For the newly separated or divorced person, maneuvering through the holidays can be difficult. Know that you are not alone. There are many other seasoned women with the same dilemma. Now is a good time to look at joining a support group or volunteering to help others such as veterans, homeless, or other less fortunate groups. Take a moment to count your blessings, and you will see how lucky you truly are. Give thanks for your family, friends, and acquaintances. Focus on the positive. Don’t dwell on past Christmases. Make plans for the present Christmas and the many ones to come. Ask around and see who’s having a Christmas party. You will probably be surprised at the number of people and organizations throwing parties. Some will probably have a cover charge. Depending on the date, you may be able to attend more than one. At any rate, they will be filled with Christmas cheer that you can be a part of. Who knows, you may even find your prince charming under the mistletoe. Be sure to get something festive to wear for the occasion. Enjoy yourself and behave. Don’t do anything that could possibly end up on social media. Absolutely, no dancing on the table. Be open to meeting new people.
