How to survive Thrive During the Holiday Season.
Some of you might be thinking, there is no way that I'm going to thrive over the next four weeks! For many, it's going to be a very difficult time and you might not know how you’re going to get through it. And if that's you, that's okay. Even if only one of the things I share helps you get through it, that’s a good thing.
However, if you're looking to thrive during the holiday season, I invite you to tap into two, three or more of the things I share. This is a very strange and different time in our lives, as we navigate a global pandemic. How can we create a holiday season to remember?
About a month before the pandemic hit in North America, my husband started a new side gig. He began streaming his video game play on Twitch TV. When he first started this, I was definitely not on board. I didn’t understand what exactly he was doing and I thought it was a waste of time. My husband has been playing videos games since he was a teen, and he’s really good at them. He had tried this ‘streaming’ thing before and it had been a major point of contention in our relationship. I didn’t want to lose my husband to online gaming.
One of the most difficult things we’re facing during the pandemic is the ability to remain friends and stay amicable with family when our opinions are polarizing. It’s not the first time we're faced with a difference in opinion from those we love, however we’ve become used to not bringing up our different political opinions at a family dinner. We know our friends well enough to avoid sensitive topics.
What's different is that during the pandemic, some of us feel comfortable sharing our opinions publicly. Sharing articles, scientific papers, blog posts, or YouTube videos that have polarizing views is adding fuel to the fire. I've seen friends posting things on Facebook without thinking and this can create irreparable damage in our relationships.
