I’m sure that there are many out there that feel a bit (or a lot) down after Christmas. The gifts have been given (under the tree is lacking), decorating has ceased, the last of the Christmas Day goodies are disappearing and maybe you are dreading getting back to your normal.
Or maybe you’re the ones that keep the hustle and bustle of the season going by hitting the malls (in your masks of course) and returning items. Could it be that you’ve grown accustomed to the energy and chaos of living. When it’s quiet and you’re alone, you think something’s wrong because you’re used to being “caught up”. When you’re alone, without external input, you don’t really enjoy being alone with yourself. You’re not the only ones that feel this way.
Now’s a good time to experience to quiet, the calm, to pick up a good book and get into it, to pamper yourself, to write in your journal, to get into the Bible, to try a new hobby or just be and pray. You might even try listening. God could be speaking to you and you’ve been in such a state you’ve not been able to hear Him.
This time could be a good time for you, not a lonely or lacking time. Learning to be alone with yourself, calm and introspective, is a valuable thing. A time to be thankful, grateful, and appreciative of what and who you have in your life is so important. Gratitude is so important. Try it, you may even like it.
