Things can only get better...

In 45 minutes it will be Christmas Day in England. It is already in Australia, and it will be in America in five hours after here . The rest of the world has similar times give or take a couple of hours.

So from the bottom of my heart I wish for you a Happy and Joyous Christmas.
And if it's not for whatever reason then I hope that in the New Year life gets better.
Remembering that we are in charge of our own happiness, (give or take family life and illness!)And that we can choose to make our worlds okay whatever is going on for us.
And please don't think I'm talking through my arse here, as my list of painful things that I have survived is huge. And I have always had a choice.

We start a new decade and in this country according to recent research half the population would say that this year has been their worst ever.
With that thought as the song says..... Things can only get better!!!

Love you

not only can things only get better -eventually (i would like to believe) they always do. it is up to us though how willing we are to invite in the changes needed to bring resolution closer.

Love to you and peace. Taking charge of our own happiness is necessary. Guilt, be damned! Life is too short, I think.

I hope you had a lovely Christmas.

So many ups and downs and so much light and shade - but your warmth and wisdom and sheer humanity remain consistent, and long may that be the case.

Wishing you many good things for the New Year.

Thanks for your words of wisdom, Mandy-Fire Byrd. The truth is that holidays can make what's hurting-hurt worse. Still---take a deep breath---and remember that we can choose to see and appreciate all that is good around us. May your 2010 be a year that is crowned with health and happiness.
