Yeah. I think that's enough of that, don't you? Bing is most probably turning over in his grave by now, plus my rhyming skills suck big time as well. Suck, just like Christmas once again sticking its rosy red ass right in our faces, cheering us on to do whatever it is we've got to do to celebrate this yuletide day.
Now please don't get me wrong. I'm not trying to imply that I completely loath giving, taking, singing, eating, drinking, worshiping, or, dare I say it, talking to the odd relative and friend. If anything, a part of me is very grateful that I'll be having a nice break away from my usual working day. But the thing is, the older I get, the more I keep on seeing and hearing the same old things.
Things like, tired and worn down Christmas decorations wheeled out at the beginning of November. People telling me that they'll either be having, 'a nice quiet one at home', or, 'a trip away to somewhere less festive'. Plus don't get me started on the mad rush over shopping, where we continually ask ourselves: Who should I buy for? What will they like? How big should the turkey be? Is Uncle what's-his-face still alive? Yadda-Yadda-Yadda.
Personally speaking, I would much rather prefer if people would use this holiday as an excuse to refocus their energies. Try to engage on what's been happening to you over the last year, and use this to figure out how you can make the next year better. After all, life can be good if you allow it to be.
Nowadays I see too many people complaining about things they can't and won't even attempt to fix. If this is the case with you, try to dig in deep inside and discover what's stopping you from moving forward. Could it be something to do with your past? Is it self inflicted, inadvertently brought about by your upbringing, your surroundings, or the people you mix with? Whatever the case may be, please, for your own sake, try to use the holidays as a positive force to help you move on with your life.
film you watched, or the last comic you read, sucked as much as a prostitute with a stammer? Life is precious and should be nurtured like a baby, like a flower, or better yet, like a baby flower. So go on, get up, go to a quiet place that suits your mood, and try to make a plan for the coming year ahead based on what you know about yourself from this year. It won't be easy, I know it won't, but it will be much better than moaning about stuff and nonsense that don't mean anything to anyone. Then once you're finished doing that, do it again, and again, and again, but please keep in mind that I'm not trying to be judgmental with my words. I want the best for everybody, everywhere, and the only way to do that is to be the best for ourselves so we can help others. And that, my friends, is the true meaning of Christmas. Happy Holidays, and if you have the time please check out the following Christmas Style Guide sent to me by The Rug Seller.
