Still in my holiday funk, I used the Friday after Thanksgiving to regroup. It was going to be a day of pampering for me! Somewhere in the midst of my mani and pedi, I got the strongest feeling to turn my negative energy into a positive one. Once again, I felt deeply connected to some of my friends. One in particular had been on my mind for the last two weeks! I reached out to those I could and decided to spread a little holiday cheer. After my mani and pedi, I picked up my little helper (my cousin who is home on break from Spelman), and we were off to make the day a good one! The Holidays can be such a rough time for many people. Not everyone will share their concerns and worries with you. So if you find yourself in a bad place, try your best to pay it forward to those around you best you can. It could be volunteering your time, checking up on loved ones that you haven’t heard from in a while, or just doing a random small act of kindness. Stay in tuned with the fact that while your holidays may not be what you envisioned…you currently have the life that someone else is praying for! ?? Spreading kindness in a world that appears to have forgotten the importance of love, patience, and tolerance is imperative. And to be honest…it feels great to put smiles on faces! Stepping outside of my own disappointments made Thanksgiving mean so much more. I cannot do a thing about the things in life that sadden me but I can embrace the world with a positive outlook and share that outlook. ❤️I even boldly reached out to the Ex Factor though I’m not sure if things will ever get better there but I still reached out. That’s all we can do this holiday season….abandon our pride and egos and think of others more than we think of ourselves! Pay it forward with LOVE! ~KJM on Serenity Sunday?
