I dislike most holidays. I'm no Grinch, no scrooge but I do prefer to celebrate in my own way, quietly, with a close few. I find the holidays to be a trying time, a stressful time, even as work winds into the slow season, and festive music can be heard on every station I find myself depressed, low, as if the overly festive atmosphere exposes the fact that I, at least most of the time, don't feel particularly festive.
I don't mind if others make merry, and I most certainly wouldn't say no to a gathering or party, I just find myself sad a lot this time of year. My situation, especially my finances, weigh on my mind. I reflect back on the year, both the highs and the lows, and I often find that the lows stick in my mind. I do my best to stay positive, but I find it hard. I'm hoping that this year will be better. I hope to be merry, and I hope to have a good end to a good year.
Here's to hoping.
And the hits just keep on comin'.....
