Emotions can fog our perception. The high degree of anticipation met with sharp disappointment produced the current environment of emotional turmoil.
Yes, everyone here is miffed, but our personal reaction is a choice. You can pull your hair out or you can shrug and and spare yourself the angst.
Point is, ifyou think this is the worst thing that could happen, you’re not seeing through the fog.
Got your health? Priceless. Food and essentials for yourself and family? Golden. Friends who care about you? A true treasure.
No laser for Christmas? OK, an ornament just fell off the tree.
Submerging ourselves in the emotion only serves to blind us to the big picture.
Give the situation perspective and see what could be missing in your life, instead of focusing on a single missing minor detail. Don’t allow disappointment to skew your perception of how fortunate you really are.
Take a few minutes to reflect on what you have to be thankful for. You will feel better for it, and the significance of the Glowforge in your life will be clearer.
Shake it off, and enjoy the holidays!
