Well, we are in the thick of the holiday season.
Many shoppers are running to and fro in an attempt to make last-minute Christmas purchases.
As a result, stress levels are high, tempers are short and patience is in short supply.
In addition to experiencing an increase in feelings of frustration, many are also contending with a sense of gloominess, and even the onset of depression.
As you are out and about in these remaining days of 2015 you will encounter people who are in different states of mind.
I encourage considering not only your own well-being, but also the well-being of others.
Instead of flaring up, responding angrily, criticizing and judging, try extending compassion.
Go ahead; practice compassion.
A little compassion will go a long, long way. And who knows? You just may make someone’s holiday.
