In just a few moments I will leave town to spend Christmas with my family, and as I hold my airline boarding pass in my hand (today's December Daily entry), I wanted to take a moment to wish you and your families a very Happy Holidays (whatever that holiday is). It is not lip service when I tell you how grateful I am to have the support of my readers. I don't know how many of you there are, how often you come here to read/visit, what you think when you do or where you are when you read in those moments, but the fact that I have readers at all who seemingly support my endeavors is a great gift.
This is the one place where I can totally be myself. I realize this is a paradox, given that I remain anonymous, but I bare my soul here in a way that I do not do in my everyday life. I probe questions that I otherwise wouldn't and admit things about which I would otherwise remain silent. For those reasons, you know me as well as if not better than those with whom I share close interpersonal relationships. So, I do not take the fact that you show up for granted. I cherish it.
With that said, I have undertaken this project to know myself better and develop a brighter outloook on life so that it might benefit my interpersonal relationships. When I'm not blogging here, then, I am wholly myself and giving all that I can to those relationships. And I think it's paying off. So, that is what I intend to do this holiday weekend. There are things that I have done historically that I hope to do better, and there are things that I hope to continue doing well. I'll report back on the results of that.
In the meantime, good tidings I bring to you and your kin,
