Don't get me wrong, I love the spirit of the season. I decorated for Christmas a couple of weeks ago. It helps remind me of the true meaning of the holiday. I strive for "peace on year and good will toward my fellow man." To that end I stay away from the crowded malls. LOL
However, as a single gal, this is a difficult time for me as well. The gray gloomy days and nights remind me that I am indeed alone. That's probably way the plethora of internet dating sites say there are more hook-ups this time of year...and break-ups as well. Confused? Well lots of folks don't want to be alone but at the same time there are many who don't want the burden of gift giving...hence the break-ups. (Yeah, I know. Terrible either way.)
What I find most difficult this time of year is writing. I can't seem to break through the fog. Do other writers have this problem or is it only me? I wonder...
Whatever your reason for the season, be happy and merry. Count your blessings and not your losses and don't let the Ba! Humbugs bite you in the butt!
