This is the month where we have to be careful not to fall into a funk and feel forlorn.
Yes, that is a lot of alliteration! But it’s true, November can be a sad and dismal month because Halloween is over and we are facing winter and the Holidays. I just read this fantastic blog and I simply couldn’t write it better. This is a good subject to share and discuss when you are in chat rooms talking to local singles. I hope you enjoy this and find it useful. I certainly did!
These courses are in no way affiliated with me and are simply for interest only. I found the blog alone informative and am only including the course links as a courtesy.
|“Focusing on Friends and Family|
Step into healing your family relationships this month.
Welcome to the start of the holiday season–which is why we are focusing on friends and family this month. I hear from so many of you who struggle with family relationships that can leave you feeling depleted and unsure of your next steps. Indeed our familial relationships can be some of the most confusing and complicated that we will experience. We all know by now that these difficult relationships can be our best teachers, but there also comes a time when we need to get to a place of peace. This will look different to all of us depending on our circumstances.
Each of our paths will be different, and we may all need a different approach to reaching what we feel is a good outcome. I’m grateful there are so many wonderful and healing modalities available to help aid us in a resolution that best suits our needs. Please know that the perfect family doesn’t really exist. In this age of Internet perfection (where everything is faked and Photoshopped), we may be led to believe that perfection exists in every family but your own. In reality, every family can have drama, and it is up to us how we respond to it. All we really have control over is our response.
Know that there is always help available to either repair these relationships or help you navigate the often stormy waters. I have listed below several courses we offer in the genre of family wellness. As we head into this holiday season with our families, I hope that you can put some of these tools into practice in your own life. Use your sacred friendships to help keep you strong, and hold space for you along the way.

I know this isn’t the most fun topic in the world, but it is so necessary. Thank you for continuing to do the hard work and continuing to improve your life and shed the old. Not only does this help yourself and your family, but it helps everybody around you and, eventually, the whole. Have a wonderful month and happy Thanksgiving to those in America.
