Tips for spending Christmas alone

great elephant journal article

i read this article from the elephant journal and wanted to share for those who are spending Christmas alone.

there are some amazing tips to make it a great day in solitude.


Take good care,


happy holidays 

love is stronger than fear

i celebrate Christmas, so i wish people a merry Christmas on this day unless i know (s)he celebrates one of the many other holidays during the season.

i wish everyone magic, wonder, joy, peace and love.

if you’re struggling, know you’re not alone – even if you feel alone.

if you can, reach out. if you can’t, write in your journal, draw, commune with nature, jot down your thoughts and feelings, stomp on the ground, create an angry picture and then rip it up.

if you start to feel like those you know would be better off without you, it’s important to reach out.

those who work help lines don’t judge. they would love to talk for a bit. you are as important and deserving of connection as everyone else.

if you feel blessed, i celebrate you as well.

i don’t own a castle, but i’m grateful for everything that i have.

coming from a place of scarcity, we worry there’s not enough for everyone.

but in truth, there is more than enough for everyone – more than enough joy, blessings, love and happiness.

love is stronger than fear.

i wish you all a merry Christmas
