There is always somebody worse off than you....

which is something I remind myself on a daily basis, especially around this time of year.

Unfortunately, I don't get happy like I used to around Christmas. Instead of looking forward to it, I actually dread it. Obviously, money is a big one. I always have to stress out about how much it's going to cost me.

And then there's the "family" that I rarely see and don't wanna see, but I have to see and everything is always on their "terms".....when and where

Then there are the people I don't see anymore and that always makes me sad.....they have either passed on or.....I just don't see them. My father is a big one. I haven't seen him in about 8 years or so. He lives in Colorado and moved out there when I was 12....just up and left and didn't tell me he was leaving. I was pretty oblivious to it when I was younger and just accepted the fact that I didn't have a father around. Now that I'm older and have children of my hurts and especially around this time of year. Kinda makes you feel worthless, but many, many people have said, "It's his loss, Holly. You didn't do anything wrong."

And of course I really miss my grandparents, especially my grandpa who was my father figure growing up.

So...I'm just kinda rambling. I've been feeling kinda down lately and probably will until after the New Year. I just really want it to all be over with, but I keep trying to tell myself that there is ALWAYS somebody that has it worse off than me....WAY worse in fact. At least I've got a roof over my head, a job, and food on the table. So I have to be thankful for that and try not to be a WLB, but some days...I just can't help myself

I found this quote and it is so very true...

know that on hoildays we miss the ones we love and think of than more when hoildays are here, but we also must learn to go on and give the blessing that our life has not been taken nor others that we love...

Anyways...I just needed to get that off my chest. I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

Sorry for being so depressing. I can't always be the goofy person I try to be

I feel the very same way.....I used to love the holidays, but I kinda don't anymore. I guess as a kid it's more exciting and as an adult it's more stressing. Keep your chin up.

Anyone who read my blog today can tell that I switched gears. Reality does not inspire this year. Too damned much reality for too many people and the specter for a happy New Year looks like a broken dream.

I was bantering with somebody yesterday or the the day before and those old axioms about the glass half full and lemonade out of lemons came up. Well a shot or two of one's favorite libation makes the lemonade better. As for the glass half full, well the problem is that the glass is too damned small. The solution is to add the liquid weapon of choice to it, step and repeat as needed.

At least we are warming up into the sixties today.

You mean love from my significant other? Yes I do. I would be lost without him.

How about You..can You get in touch with your DAD? Suck up the BS Pride and Talk to him! You will never know what will happen untill you try! Christmas is a time of love...and for some, new Beginings!

I tried to contact him at the last address I had. It was returned to me with "return to sender". I have no idea where he is at now....he moves like once a year.

I don't want anyone's pity....really I don't. I am thankful for what I've got, but I'm a human and I have feelings and well....hey I can't be a ray of sunshine every day.

I know how you are feeling. December is a rough time for me too. Cry/rant on my shoulder any time you like.

I am working on writing a new song entitled " I shot Santa Claus tonight"

Some years ago I was in one of those moods..didn't want anything to do with hoildays, just wanted them to be over. I told myself then I would feel better after they were all over with.
At that same time I had a friend who's Mom had a heart attack and died 2 days before Christmas. No warning, no good byes.
My friend was devastated, they had been extremely close.

Now every year she is one of the happiest people there is to see the holidays. She says they are meant to be filled with laughter and love, and if she would let herself dwell on the bad and be depressed she would be losing time that she could never get back and her Mom would be very disappointed at that.
We were talking about it one day and she said.."If I looked at just getting through the holidays and then feeling better...What if I don't get through them? I have to love life today, I may not get a chance to do it tomorrow."
I like her outlook at it and try very hard to hold onto that same outlook in my life.

I hope you are feeling better soon and Have a Very Merry Christmas..

Hugs... yeah.. me too.

Dec 18 @ 1:49PM  
Thanks guys......I feel better knowing I'm not the only one that feels like shit! LOL

I still haven't done my Christmas shopping yet. I may actually try getting to it tonight. I haven't been too much in the Christmas spirit this year and decided since I was a little late getting things done this year along with getting a real tree like I do every year, that I would just let the tree go this year and not put one up. I hate that it's come to this, but I can honestly take or or leave it this year. It's not going to change the fact that I will be spending time with my family again this Christmas, and we always go to my grandma's for it on Christmas eve every year.
