It's my hope that the Christmas season for you will be such a time. However, the reality for many is that the Christmas season will be one of stress, anxiety and family squabbles as "Uncle Fred" once again drinks too much and brings up the dirty laundry of the family over Christmas lunch.
So what do the Christmas holidays mean to you? Are they a chance to spend time with family and friends away from the work environment? A much anticipated time that you are very much looking forward to, or are they a time you slightly dread? A time that you would prefer to spend in solitude?
My Christmas message to you is to just take each day for what it is. Hold tightly to the important things and loosely to the things that aren't. The trick is in figuring out what's not important. If you can change the things you don't like, do. If you can't, then pray for the strength of character to be graceful under stress.
I recently I came upon a list of “rules for success” which I think could help us to change our lives for the better. I've never been one for New Year’s resolutions, but as we say goodbye to 2016 and move toward 2017, I thought I'd share some salient pieces of wisdom. If lived well, how much happier could we all be, and then the "Uncle Fred's" of this world would have no power to cause us stress.
Thank you all for being a part of our 2016. We at the Parkinson Chiropractic and Musculoskeletal Centre look forward to being of service and friendship to you again in 2017.
Merry Christmas & Happy New Year from Duane and the Team.
