On a PM with a GNer I suggested an Advent Calendar for those who find Christmas difficult.
The idea is for us to write out special messages for ourselves either daily or in one go to be opened daily on the lead up to Christmas.
I know so many people who don't give themselves credit for managing life, the big things and the small things.
So if Christmas is difficult having something positive, that's real and personal (not some sugar coated generic fridge magnet) that we can give to ourselves as a daily gift it just might help a little.
The messages could be about anything but I thought along the lines of :
Happy times, things we are proud of ourselves for having managed, the name of a person we like or likes us, a new friend be that on-line or in person, helping someone (however small) how we were helped the list is endless really.
Some times we reflect on the difficulties, the hurt, the sadness and the trials of our lives but we often don't reflect on our achievements.
Sometimes just getting from one day to the next is an achievement.
I don't think this is original but I'm putting it out there anyway.
Who knows we may even be able to give positive peer feedback. I'm sure some of you are familiar with this.
Over to GNers.
