Top 10 things to say this holiday season

Some of us say a lot; others, not so much.

Some things are hard to say, and other things come out with ease.

We talk around some things and bite our tongue and decide the time is not quite right. But some things, regardless of how hard they may be to say, need to be said.



Here's a top 10 list of some things you can say this holiday season that may bring you peace in 2014.

1. I forgive you.

2. I'm sorry. How can I make this right?

3. I am beautiful just the way I am.

4. I am not hungry; I am bored...angry...sad...happy...anxious...

5. I need help and I don't know where to start OR How can I help?

6. I miss you.

7. I am not defined by a number on a scale or the size of my jeans. I choose health for me.

8. Let's just agree to disagree.

9. I am not defined by my past mistakes.

10. I love you.



What else would you add to this list?

Be gentle with yourself this holiday season and always. Treat yourself like someone you love. You're worth it.

    1. Thank you, Minttu. Some become more important at different times in peoples' lives. I agree with you, and especially if you can say them to yourself. Happy holidays! Cheers!

  3. I think this should be applied all year round not just the holidays....though I suspect #3 and #7 are the ones I'd have the most difficulty with.

    (Found you through NaBloPoMo...I'll have to keep bobbing back!).

    1. Hi Loki Lou! Thanks so much for the feedback.You're absolutely right about the year-round idea. Some of these should be said daily. I definitely struggle with #3 and #7 as well. Please come back again soon. :-) Happy holidays!
