I just wish I didn’t have to deal with them. I’ve been told that I’m supposed to be a certain way during this time of year. Well I’d rather not. I’m going to start something new this year, as of today my own tradition will be to not be around for the “usual” holiday things. Instead I’m going to travel to a destination and have a good time on my own terms.
In a way I’m lucky I have to be on call for work through the holidays, in others I’m glad I’m going to head somewhere different and do something different for the holidays. It’s not that I don’t love my family, but I can love them year round and not have to be stuffed in a house with them. Maybe they’ll see the wisdom in this, that it’s about happiness and not about being down, which I’ve been for the last few Christmas’s.
Peace and love to all, I’m going snowboarding!
