Let go of the battle

You don't have to whip yourself into joy.
You don't have to take a nice bath surrounded by scented candles,
or enjoy a walk in the snow (no snow here)
or dance till you smile
or watch White Christmas.
You don't have to try to feel any other way.
Just be yourself today.
Be with whatever you experience.
It's okay.

  1. I didn't see this until tonight, but this is exactly how I felt on Christmas this year. I spent the morning with my son, then went to work and enjoyed taking care of the patients.
