If you haven't yet, it's time to make some plans so that you are not alone for the holidays, that is, if you don't want to be.  (Many very busy people long to have some peace and quiet in solitude.) If you haven't, learning to love your own company is the key to solitude rather than loneliness. 

The holidays offer many opportunities to keep in touch with local and long distance friends, even if it's just attending to your holiday card list and adding a personal note.

I'M A BELIEVER IN THE GOOD OLD FASHIONED, STAMPED, ENVELOPED, GREETING CARD, one with at least a short personal note.  E-mail or e-cards will never replace the well designed papery card!  Not among people with taste!

Are there any movies you've been wanting to see AT THE THEATRE?
Home DVD nights be banned!  Time to take yourself out to the movies, the biggest screen, but don't indulge in the extra large popcorn which will put fat on your tummy that only Santa Claus would envy!

Is there something special you've been hoping someone else would gift you?  Maybe it's time to indulge yourself a little.  Buying something special for yourself, when you can afford to, is a wonderful way to stimulate our poor economy.  Maybe you are or used to be a retail sales clerk on commission yourself?

If you are going to spend the days between Christmas Eve and New Years Eve alone and are thinking you might get depressed, think vacation.  If you can't leave town, make this a time to become a tourist of your own town  Now is the time to go to art galleries, museums, and concerts.

Don't forget to invite your friends.

It's not too late to create a wonderful holiday season for yourself!
