This season is all about being in the moment.
Joy will come when you approach everything with a joyful heart.
I love great food and now board games like Jenga are right there. Of course I would have fun playing a rousing game of Scrabble. But what makes these moments great are positive and calm interactions with others. I’m finding that calm spirits attract other calm spirits.
Be careful and avoid turmoil. But be brave and truthful to admit the why of the avoidance to give the other spirit a chance to get stable and calm, to exist in harmony.
I can’t take on your pain but I can encourage you to work through it to regain joy.
