As joyous as the Xmas season is for so many, it is an especially difficult time for many others who are suffering hardships or loss, feel lonely or disappointed, or have concluded that their dreams will never come true. If you know someone like that please try to include them in a meaningful way to show them they are valued. If you are such a person, pull yourself up and take control of your life again. Resolve to replace brooding with a commitment to devise and pursue new dreams. Never lose sight of your capacity to be happy.
