“Bottom line is, even if you see ’em coming, you’re not ready for the big moments. No one asks for their life to change, not really. But it does. So what are we, helpless? Puppets? No. The big moments are gonna come. You can’t help that. It’s what you do afterwards that counts. That’s when you find out who you are.”
~ Joss Whedon – Buffer The Vampire Slayer TV Series
I woke up last Sunday morning from a nightmare of sorts. In this nightmare, my house was filled with vampires. In every room and around every corner, there were vampires. As soon as I slayed 1 vampire, another vampire would appear. I was like Buffy The Vampire Slayer. When I awoke, I felt exhausted and depleted. And the first words that came out of my mouth…
Cr*p…here comes the holiday season!
I’m sure you can relate. A season where we are suppose to be filled with joy and excitement but really deep down inside we are filled with tension and stress…augh!!! Let’s be honest , it has taken me years to recover from my own childhood traumas around the holidays. I’m sure these are the same traumas that all families share…
- The yelling and screaming matches
- The disappointments
- The missed expectations
- The family member(s) who suffer from depression and mood swings
For the longest time I avoided the holidays with a passion…there was just too much drama. But over time I learned how to slay these holiday vampires by creating new heart-felt holiday traditions. I started with what made me happy….
Community, Connection, Conversation
And from that I have slowly introduced the following new traditions into the mix…
- Friendsgiving (11/22)
- Black Friday Paint and Pour (11/23)
- New Years Community Fire (1/5/19)
- Adult Easter Egg Hunt (TBD 2019)
