Happy Holidays  is a greeting commonly used this time of the year; it’s part of the Christmas cheer.

The word Happy means feeling or showing pleasure or contentment; cheerful, merry and joyful are a few words to describe.

The word Holiday means – to take a break – from work and worries for a period of time during which you relax and enjoy yourself.

Now add those words together – Happy Holidays – and make the small changes needed in your life to make

this holiday season yours.

We are meant to be happy in life; although, at times,  life gives us more than we ‘think’ we can bear.

It’s an evolutionary adaptation —learning from the dangerous or hurtful situations we encounter through life (bullying, trauma, betrayal) helps us avoid them in the future and react quickly in a crisis to rebound.

Justin Gatlin ‘the world’s fast man’ who beat the crowd favorite Bolt in 2017; Gatlin returned to track and field as a competitor after nine years away for testing positive for a banned substance.

Sloane Stephens, who words says it all “I had surgery January 23,” Stephens said. “If someone told me then that I’d win the US Open, ‘It’s impossible,’ I would say. ‘It’s absolutely impossible.’ My journey to get here, coming back, just being able to keep it all together and have such a great team behind me — this journey’s been incredible.

Time and time again we hear happiness isn’t something that just happens to you, you have to work a little harder to conquer and maintain it.

For this holiday season let’s strive to be happy and share our happiness with those around us. We have only today, yesterday is gone and tomorrow is just a promise. Creating and finding happiness in those small things, precious moments or memories are the keys to surviving the Christmas cheer.

With many people celebrating different holidays at the same time of year, Happy Holidays has become a catch-all greeting to cover everything Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa. Wishing you Happy Holidays!
