What are you looking forward to this holiday season?
I know that many of us here are feeling anxious and perhaps panicky about being in situations that are uncomfortable.. (I know I am)... but we have to focus on the things that we are looking forward to about this holiday season (Christmas, Hannukah, New Year, ETC)
Remember to breathe and smile friends :)
What I'm looking forward to:
*My sister coming home from Utah. I haven't seen her in 2 months
*The family getting together and having a fun time
*Seeing the looks on everyone's faces as they open their gifts
*Getting the camera out and taking a ton of pictures
*Eating til I can't eat anymore!!!!
*Leftovers!!! hahaha I'll be eating for days and stuffing myself silly
*Finishing up the Xmas presents I'm painting for family
*Seeing people I haven't seen for quite a while
*Having a good time and trying to ignore the panic
Remember, we can still have fun, but if we need to, I'm sure we can all find a place to just escape for a moment and breathe... if need be...
We are NOT a panic disorder or anxiety disorder, we just have it. During the holidays we could perhaps wrap it up and toss it in the dumpster for a few hours (per se)...
(easier SAID than done!!! I know.. but we can try)
*HUGS TO EVERYONE*
