New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - November 3, 1996, New Braunfels, Texas Take time during the holidays to look at what youve accomplished As the holiday season approaches it is good to pause and reflect upon the blessings and accomplishments of the year Of particular importance are the warm experiences with family members even if there is conflict with other family members and with dear friends Major personal accomplishments are great to reflect on also Certainly the holidays are rich in the tradition of family time For those with close families and friends the holidays can be a fulfilling and revitalizing time Sometimes in living our daytoday lives we get so busy doing for the holidays that we forget to Lets make time to slow down reminisce and give thanks I suggest that reminiscing with ourselves with others about the love we have given and received and immersing ourselves in the blessings of our lives helps us re energize and experience peace and contentment This time of reflection can also aid us in reorienting our priorities thereby giving us direction for how we wish to live our lives for the next year When we seek on a daily basis to live our lives and make choices consistent with our values and priorities we are more prone to like and respect ourselves and in turn contentment and peace of mind come more easily Life is not perfect for anyone Im sure youre surprised to hear this and we all have problems For those recently alone or with losses the holiday season can be depressing I say CAN be depressing because there are so many ways to deal with difficult or painful situations that lessen the distress and even add some joy We can feel sad about some things and joyful about others Lets add joy where we can Being sad may be unavoidable but frequently feeling depressed can be avoidable The effort it takes to get out and do something positive to avoid sinking To sell your car or home advertise in the HeraldZeitung by calling 6259144 h

themselves from others and stay at home will continue to feel lonely Going to meat markets or singles bars seldom produces a good relationship however So where are people to find good people By the way there ARE truly good men and good women out I encourage folks to develop a hobby that involves social contact We meet people with common interests that way 1 encourage folks to find a cause or a purpose outside themselves in which they can take pride and which requires effort In this way when we are going about accomplishing tasks for a cause we believe in we meet people Relationships that grow out of a common cause or hobby or activity are more likely to evolve into a positive relationship than one growing out of alcohol and Volunteer for Habitat for Humanity a food kitchen church welcoming committees but get out and meet people How about working on the Toys for Tots or Elf Louise program Furthermore when we are working toward a goal outside ourselves we have satisfaction and often can forget at least for a while our own struggles This can be taken overboard by the way but in correct proportions it is a wonderful tool to use to build a contented How about inviting someone alone or without family close by over for dinner How about inviting a small group of people from the armed services at a nearby military base over for dinner over the holidays How about taking dinner to a homebound person Your local church would know who needs such Practice random acts of kindness and senseless beauty For yourself personally buy flowers the grocery stores have inexpensive but lovely ones to brighten up your home The fresh fragrance can brighten our mood too Go for a walk in the open areas say around the rivers or up Panther Canyon Go to Lost Maples or Enchanted Rock Open yourself to the glory of the colors of the sunsets and the sun sprays dancing out around the clouds Watch the squirrels play and dart up the trees Feed the ducks Write a love letter to every member of your family or to special friends Give love find appreciation in the beauty of our world Remember to pray In short if our families are intact make time to reminisce about the special times and share those loving thoughts and memories aloud with them If our families are spread around or broken up find ways to remember the good times but reach out to others to help them finding a cause greater than ourselves to which we can apply our time thoughts and energy can bring us peace and contribute to the wellbeing of others Find ways to brighten up our lives to find joy in the small things nature is always and look for ways to make life more fulfilling Include our own spirituality in all we do Disclaimer All materials in this column are provided for general information only It is not intended nor
