I’ve been a bit lazy about writing these last few days, and frankly, this holiday season has been relatively uninspiring given the restrictions and everything that has been going on in the world. However, it is essential to be mindful of everything good in this world and the many blessings we have been given. Christmas Eve was a stark reminder of just how different this year has been, and it had me a little down most of the day. Later in the day, I realized that the negative outlook was because I kept dwelling on depressing thoughts. I have to be thankful for many things, and I need to open up my heart with a spirit of gratitude to welcome the good things into my life.
