One way to find that release and that escape is to unleash your creativity. Whether that be on the job, through a hobby, or some other form of personal satisfaction, find something that you are passionate about and have at it! Life is too short to wake up one day and have a long list of “I wish I had tried…” or “I never got a chance to pursue…” quotes in our mental bags. Are you passionate about education? Pursue it! Love writing or reading? Make time for it. Do you find release in your kids and in your family? Invest in them. Do you love football? Watch football! Go out of your way during this holiday season to unleash your creativity.
Finally, another way to find release and escape is take stock of what you have and take time to be thankful. We are in a season that calls on us to reflect over the past year and identify those things for which we can be thankful. Some of us may have had great years, while others may have had a harder go. Whatever your experience has been this year, find something that you can be thankful for. Here’s one: if you’re reading this it means you’re alive and breathing. That’s something to be thankful for if nothing else. Enjoy the holiday everyone.
