Sometimes you wait and wait and hope and hope for something to happen in your life only to find out that it didn’t make you happy and it didn’t make all of your problems go away. This probably suggests that you aren’t very focused on what’s truly important right now. It’s easy to get distracted, especially around the holidays, by objects and gifts and possessions. Maybe you need to be more honest with yourself about what WILL make you happy. Chances are that you’ll find it isn’t money or things or some messy unrequited love situation. Reevaluate the things you are hoping for at this time. Will you be truly happy when you get them?
On the Other Hand: Get gift receipts. Maybe you got the wrong size, wrong color. Maybe the big surprise gift you ordered isn’t going to be delivered on time. Don’t get upset if you goofed up a gift. It’s the thought that counts, and gifts aren’t what’s important anyway.
