It is December and many people are preparing for the holiday season..My family and friends ask me often what I want for Christmas. I always tell them the same thing as I have for the past 5 years. I want to feel better. In reality I know that is a stupid thing to say because there is no magic buton they can press or pill they can give me to instantly stop my suffering. But, I say it anyway because in my messed up logic I figure maybe if I repeat it enough I will feel better. Anyway I encourage everyone to donate during this season to a cause that matters to them. Whether it be an animal charity, those less fortunate, or even Lyme disease causes. Most other causes get a lot of publicity and Lyme disease causes are left hidden. Those suffering with Lyme would really appreciate the kindness. Personally, in the spirit of the holidays I have donated to a number of organizations such as the local food bank, toys for tots, and of course some Lyme disease charities.Another thing to remember especially during this time of year is spread the kindness.Take for example my post "a little kindness..." those people who stopped and took just a small fraction of time out of their day to help me. It made a worlds of difference. It wouldnt kill anyone to hold the door open for someone, or ask someone how they are and genuinley care, or help someone with a disability open a door or anything else small like that. It would be so appreciated by the people on the recieving end. Plus it feels really good to make the difference.
...Today it was an emotionally exhausting day for me. It was one of those days where I just felt tired of suffering. Luckily, I have many good friends that cheered my up. I really appreciate that. It made a worlds of difference to know I have a team of people supporting me. I have many friends in Sweden and even though they are an ocean away they too really lifted my mood. Tack så mycket =) This brings me back to my earlier point. If someone looks like they are having a bad day, take the time out to cheer them up. Especially during this time of year. Thanks for reading.
**** It would be really appreciated if you post something kind you did for someone else in the comments for this post.*****
