Come play a game of "remember when" and enjoy this holiday post from author Andrea Buginsky!
Thanksgiving is next week, and the holidays will officially start. It’s a time for family and friends to get together and tell one another how much they’re loved. It’s a time for personal reflection. It’s a time for rest.
Rest?! During the holidays? Yeah, right! The holiday season is probably the busiest time of year for most people: cooking, baking, cleaning, decorating, and shopping.
But it should be a time to look back at the year and remember all of the good times we had. Remember the celebrations, events, and funny moments. Share your stories with your family and friends. Play a game of “remember when…” Sit around relaxing and just share and laugh.
And while you are remembering the good times, take some time to reflect on the bad ones, too. Unfortunately, there have been many this year, especially recently. Hurricane Sandy, earthquakes, shootings…so much, you just want to lay your head down and cry. But I’m not telling you to wallow in the memories of these horrible events. I’m telling you to reflect on how we as human beings evolve over time and recover from these tragedies.
Yes, the next several weeks will be a very busy time for most people. Just make sure you take time to sit back, relax, and reflect. You’ll be glad you did.
