This time of year always comes with various feelings.....
Feelings of joy when you see the look on your kids faces.
Feelings of sadness when you think of those who are gone.
Feelings of hopefulness when you help those in need.
Feelings of love when you see family.
Feelings of accomplishment, or lack there of, depending on how the year went.
Feelings of anxiousness as you prepare for the holidays.
Sometimes even feelings of anger as you deal with those who are (insert whatever here). *uncooperative, ungrateful, selfish, uncaring, etc.*
I, myself, find a roller coaster of these emotions. Sometimes daily! I try to prepare myself for anything and everything that the season can bring but some things you are just not able to prep for. Handling the situation is half the battle. I have a hard time with that part of feelings. Handling is hard! I tend to bottle things up, which is never a good thing. I like to vent to Gary, even if he has no idea what I am talking about. I cry. Some days that is all you need, a good cry!
How do you feel during this season? Is there a specific way you handle situations or feelings?
