Alone at Christmas - Joy to the world!
Joy of joys - that day of days is over.....Christmas......I for one am glad! I can sit alone on Boxing Day and enjoy
the peace and quiet. Call me a humbug but Christmas is a time to be alone. It's time to take stock - to look back and forwards - what a year and how well you've done to survive it - the overconsumption and the hype!
Christmas is for families...so they say....well let dysfunction and chaos reign. Isn't family life far from harmonious any other day so why do we make such a pretence for Christmas? The reason is that most of us have not grown up and stopped believing in other people's fairy tales - Bros. Grimm and Hans Christian!! Some of us are stuck permanently in our very own fairy story....with a wicked stepmother....read employer...and eating the poisoned apple...read eating unhealthily since our emotions are so toxic.
Christmas is not about bells, holly, miseltoe or Mr Claus. Christmas is a time of peace. All I want for Christmas is a piece of peace in my heart.
