I feel a little down the day after Christmas. All the satisfaction that comes from Christmas shopping and the giving and receiving gifts is over. I have to work because I don’t have any PTO. You know, things like that.
I really did enjoy the season this year. I participated in all the holiday events at work. I spent too much money on Christmas gifts. I enjoyed spending time with my family and friends. I was a little upset that it was 60 degrees here in Ohio yesterday and not a winter wonderland. I’ll get over it. Maybe. (Note: I like cold weather.)
Today through New Year’s, I do tend to battle both depression and anxiety. The magic of Christmas is over, and I have to accept that another year has come and gone already.
Sally is feeling a little down, too.
I’m going to do my best to not let my emotions get in the way of enjoying what is left of this year. I’m going to do my best to be excited for a new year and a fresh start. I’m going to sew myself back up and keep on keeping on. Just like Sally.
After all, Sally feels alone and unheard, but she still goes to save Santa anyway.
So one step, or in Sally’s case, one limb at a time.
I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday!
