Happy two post Monday! This little bonus is because I just needed to share the Cornbread Stuffing recipe with all you Thanksgiving chefs, but still did not want to leave the motivation undone. Instead of doing my usual one quote today, I wanted to do a few of my favorites from past motivations and a few new. The holidays are officially here and for many, that means more stress, more headaches, and more difficulty keeping a positive attitude in check. It tends to mean that for me.
This year, I have decided to choose to be happy, thankful, and calm this holiday season. To help with that, I have a few go-to quotes about attitude that remind me everything we do is a choice. We can choose to get annoyed in that insanely crowded store or parking lot, or we can choose to breathe, relax, and know everything that must get done will get done. We can choose to show our family and friends how stressed and upset we are, or we can choose to make their day better with our kindness, patience, and understanding. Likewise, the choice of this holiday season being stressful, sad, dramatic, happy, joyful, and calming are all up to us. For this reason, I choose to be happy.
There was a great quote I recently heard which states that we can be in a situation, but our situation does not have to be in us. That is powerful. My self goal for this ending to such an incredible year is to choose to react with positivity, helpfulness, and kindness.
What are some of your goals for the holidays and how are you going to make it happen?
