Healing

Right now, with the Christmas being here and me grieving, I would like nothing better than Christmas to just go away. I know I can not make that happen so I am having to cheer my butt up and be a happy camper. I never thought I would be in these shoes or dealing with all this but I am. You see this stuff on the news and never realize it can happen to you. 

Things I am doing to make my self happy right now:

1. Surrounding my self with happy people/people that love me. This is my family, friends, blog friends. I can not take negativity at this point and I am getting rid of it in my life. Around the holidays I really do not need it with everything else I have been through lately.

2. As much as I love music, especially Christmas music, I can not listen to it right now. The other night one song made me cry out of no where so typically I do not listen to music. If I do, it is music has no meaning at all to me. So my love for country music is taking a back seat as Miranda Lambert makes me cry to much.

3. No more reading the news. My nephew is not a statistic. He was a person with feelings, a life, who had a great personality. 

4. I am trying to keep my self busy with things I love to do. I am trying to do a lot of crafty projects, I am staying busy with the store, and I clean my house....A LOT!

5. I am trying to keep up with blogging and not be such a sad blogger. I know my writing has been mostly sad these past 2 months and I am sorry for that. My blog is my outlet. It will be happy soon. I am working on it and it is going to take time for me to get back to me.

There are so many other things I am doing but my brain is not working at the moment as I have not had any coffee. I hope everyone had a great day! Focus on the positive. That is what I do every day.

  3. I was struggling so very much this time last year. My heart was broken and the holidays just completely amplified all those feelings I was having. I had never felt more alone, even though I was surrounded by my family at gatherings. Just hang in there a little bit, I'll definitely be praying for you. I know it's tough, but I promise you are tougher! XOXO

  4. My dad died when I was 19, just a few months before Christmas. The first year was very hard, of course, because dad was a huge part of all of our Christmas traditions and memories. Like the time he went upstairs and shaved the mustache off that he had had for my entire life, and no one noticed until about 3 hours later. lol. Surround yourself with friends and loved ones and cherish the memories you had. It's ok to laugh, it's ok to have fun. Ultimately remember how your nephew would want you to celebrate. You're in my thoughts over this holiday season.

  6. Still praying for you and thinking of you. I agree, the news media can be so cruel. Trust me, I stopped watching so much after 12/14. They seem to be so insensitive. Glad you are trying to focus on the positive. I know how hard that can be.
