Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, or any other holiday, imagine what would be the perfect day.
Write down any memories of wonderful holidays and imagine what would be perfect. I think of Christmas in the snow with my family and recent Christmases with Matt and Artemis. Combining them would be pretty much perfect.
Allow yourself to doodle a bit--strings of lights, snowflakes, dreidels, candles--anything that reminds you of the season.
Just let yourself play on the page. Don't be afraid to make a mistake--you can always cover it up! Just thinking about happy holidays made me smile, and I think if I reach out to them, I can make them happen.
