WOW! OK, so here is a post, better late than never?
Happy December People!
So I was talking to Cely yesterday and came to the realization that the reason why I get so pissed off every time my mother tells me not to repeat a mistake that happened over a decade ago (i.e.- don’t burn the Christmas cookies). I get irritated because this implies to me that there is no forgiveness out there for these types of things.
My Holiday request for everyone who reads this is very simple- are you ready?
GIVE EACH OTHER A BREAK! GIVE THEM THE BENEFIT OF THE DOUBT!
Even if you know that they are going to fuck up- let them try! Tis the season to let people redeem themselves. Some of you don’t have this problem because you are open minded, loving and naturally forgiving people, but everyone else- I beg you! Go Against your better judgment and let little Billy TRY to put up the ornaments on his own. Of course you should monitor and participate and have fun.
Let me repeat that last part- HAVE FUN! Enjoy each other, let others help you- there is a give and take in this. Everybody needs to park their high horses somewhere and just be human for a couple of weeks and stop being “perfect”. There is no such thing as perfection in people in life in reality. At no point will everyone during a holiday keep to the schedule and yes, someone will get drunk- sorry.
As some very wise people have told me many times- you cannot control what others do, you can only control how you react to it. So lets all make a concerted effort to get any petrified sticks OUT of our asses and have a happy holiday 🙂
