Every year I tend to go on a rant about “The Holidays” — the increasing commercialization of what, to me, is a sacred holiday, the crazed Black Friday shoppers who this year even resorted to tasing to get the best of fellow bargain hunters. (Really, people??)
I need to stop there. I can feel my blood pressure ramping just thinking about it! Instead, I’m trying something new this year: chilling. Not fussing over what I can’t control.
I’ll focus on what I can control, and what’s important in my life, like family, friends, and my wonderful readers whose encouragement means so much.
