    I won't go into detail about why I'm feeling sad this Christmas. I know lots of people have way worse problems than I. But, I'm trying to be optimistic and counting my many blessings on this low-key Christmas day. If you are struggling with something today, you are not alone; I'm sending healing energy your way.

      It's a bit of a shitty Christmas over here too.  There are always things to be thankful for, but we should not engage in toxic positivity.  Life has it struggles, and it's okay to be feeling the Christmas blues.

      I'm always am internal optimist , I feel even many of the blind people are waking up, after 2 Jabs and a boosters and find overall it's not working. Some have been stuck inside for two years and one third of small businesses are destroyed.

      Because our immune system are always superior to snythic monopoly greed. More people have to wake up a lot more.

      I'll Always be looking at the bright side of life. Starting with the shining star on top of the tree of life and present of love ones.
      Happy family day to all.
      I'm a little sad my family are out with a common cold, called Omicron.

        Castlepaloma, Castltepaloma,  you're welcome.

        This time around, you're adding sense and nonsense. Or you're being comical.

        Which is your family that is strike with the safe Omicron?

        Castlepaloma, merry  xmas to you and yours!

          Put and mix the letters to the words delta and omicron. We get mind control.

          When I do get this tiny house community finished with most of all my friends and family together here.  It will feel like Christmas everyday.

          Whatever works for you, bud.
          Above all, love peace and joy.

      Hey, Sherry, I think so many of us struggle with mixed emotions at Christmas. There's a lot of pressure to be jolly. It can definitely stir up past anguish with our family members. I have a son with autism and I always feel some anger and resentment at family who weren't supportive when he was young and we were in the thick of it. Just because it's Christmas, I can't totally forget that and be merry. Take good care of yourself! Sending love!

      Good advice, Miebakagh!

      Sherry, many folks experience the blues at Christmas. Whatever is causing yours will pass. Do as Miebakagh says and think of merrier times. Or be selfish and do something nice for yourself.

      I wish you the best.

    Sherry, there are many things that occur in people’s lives that can affect how they feel and there is no magic switch that you can flick on or off at Christmas.
    Though it is a joyous time for many it can be devastatingly sad or lonely for others. I have had Christmases when I felt really down and no desire to celebrate.
    This should have been a sad one for us with no other family around (for various reasons) but I actually found it more relaxing and enjoyable than usual. We do have FaceTime, Zoom, Skype etc though now.
    I hope the rest of this holiday season improves for you and you have a better New Year.

    Hi Sherry,

    This year and the last five years at Christmas I have found that music helps me think happy thoughts of when my Darling husband was alive and was with me. I love to listen to country music as I write, and it helps me to smile.

    I am sorry you are feeling blue and believe me I can relate. I often think I will just have a pity party by myself. Then, I call my sister and tell her she is invited to my party, and we laugh together until I am on the road to my positive self again.

    I am sending prayers your way and remember to love yourself first because we are all beautiful in someone's eyes.

    Until later,
    Bobbi Purvis,

    We all experience sadness at some point in our life. Every person has their own set of reasons.

    The years 2012 and 2021 were the worst years of my life. They've given me a lot of blues. I hope and pray that everything that makes you anxious and sad fades away and that happiness and peace comes to you now and always. Ameen! smile

    Best wishes for the year 2022!
    Blessings and Love are being sent your way! smile

    Hi Sherry,
    Thanks for sending healing energy. I could use some. Sorry you're feeling sad, hope you're feeling a little better today. You are not alone. We all have stuff going on which can block our joy and reason for the season. I've been praying to God for weeks now about a situation, for it not to block my Christmas joy and get rectified by His power. It's been hard, interfering with my sleep, but I did end up having a delightful Christmas Eve and Christmas day with family. I hope you were able to as well. It's been a rough couple of years. Let's look beyond the holidays and into 2022 for better days. Peace and blessings.

    I'm glad to hear you are being optimistic.
    That's probably the only direction that will keep you sane.

    When we start looking down the path of gloom and doom, it's hard to come back.
    Reality is Tough.  There are so many things that can bring us down.

    Illness is the worst.   I can't understand the pain & suffering.  What does it accomplish?

    Yet I see it in front of me with each turn I take. Alzheimer's is absolutely the most devastating and cruel disease I have ever witnessed...it is so rough on families.
    But children with cancer...I honestly cannot understand why they must endure such pain.

    Thanks for the healing energy & I'm sending some your way.  It might be a few days late, but it's better late than never.

    May you feel the tension rise away from your body & see a glimmer of light shine bright.

    Take care.
