“Happy” New Year?
10 Reasons We Avoid Healing Our Heart
To be honest, I haven’t been a fan of celebrating or even acknowledging New Year’s Eve for the longest time. In fact, I did my best to avoid it!
December 31st is a day when many people will go out and celebrate bringing in the New Year! And others are just trying to get through the day, feeling like there is nothing to look forward to.
A Holiday is a Holiday is a Holiday
We all experience loss at some point in our lives. There is no escaping it. We think it is abnormal or unnatural to feel the pain of loss so we avoid it......no matter what the cost. So we avoid it. Here are ten reasons we use to avoid healing our hearts.
Stop Making Resolutions, Start Being Intentional
It all started when I spent one Fourth of July holiday alone. I remember thinking; “I’m sure everyone had great plans for today.” I imagined they were at cook outs, parades, firework displays, pools – anywhere that included other people and fun. But, when I spoke with my friend the next day, it turned out she didn’t have any plans either. We each assumed the other had plans.
Learning to Take Action
There is a lot of talk about resolutions and goals this time of year. Funny as we get further into the year you don’t hear much about it. Do you find yourself setting goals because “its’ that time of year?”
I don’t think of myself as having a lot to say. I am a listener. I am a reader. I am not a writer.
Yet, I find myself awakened at 2 am with this overwhelming feeling to write. If you struggle with writing like I do, then you may understand how this went down. At first I laid in bed discussing this in my head. Really? Can it wait until the morning? If I get up, I will have to get out of bed, turn the light on, and then I will not be able to go back to sleep. I will be awake for the day. And it will be a long one.
