Let It Go……….”Frozen”

December 21, 2017

I have not been the best HO in a few months due to my crazy schedule. But I love all the HO’s here and will try to be a better HO in 2018 but In the spirit of the holidays, I wish to lend my two-cents to all the grand advice you’re getting:

  1. Let go of the craziness….You can, you really can. Take a deep breath. Look around you. Have you done enough? Probably. Can you stop right now? Maybe. Can you be so close that you can declare: “FINIS!” Try, for your own sanity, for the safety of others, for the circle of hell you will leave behind, please try. Try and enjoy Christmas….Now.
  2. Let go of the politics…Just for 2 days…Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Even if everyone in your family, your neighborhood, your church, your spirit circle, your yoga class and Jacob Marley have told you they are on your side…still….let it go. Let it be Christmas. Let it be the two days of wonder and magic and joy that every 5-year-old is feeling right now.
  3. Let go of the scale. Two days isn’t going to make any difference. Two weeks might, but two days,  not so much. You’ve been here a thousand times, haven’t you? Just Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Just enjoy yourself like a regular human being, or maybe like a Labrador Retriever. You know, eat your dinner. Have a snack or two and let it go. And remember Labrador’s don’t have opposable thumbs so make someone else open the refrigerator.
  4. Let go of work. Enjoy your family, your friends, your fun people in your life. Whatever your work is, it will be there…just like Bill Shakespeare and his pal, MacBeth says….tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow.

Just Let It Go…………and what the heck, Let it Snow!


MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL MY WONDERFUL READERS! I love you all and wish you only the best Christmas ever and the happiest of holidays!

    Cathy, thanks for owning up, and I will as well. I’ve been letting go so much that I’ve been a very, very naughty HO. I deserve coal in my HO stocking, if I had one. But my take-away from your post is to let go a little more and remember that we’re all human, and as long as we have love in our hearts and laughter in our lives, everything else is gravy on the mashed potatoes.

      Oh Karen, I couldn’t have said it better. I’m going to try harder in 2018 because I love my HO peeps so very much! Happy Holidays to you!

    Good advice! Except for the “let it snow” part. 🙂 My schedule’s been crazy too, although not from the holidays … I’m looking forward to slowing it down soon.
