I am grateful for the peace I have provided for myself today.
Everyone I know is grateful for the peace they have provided for themselves today.
Everyone I don’t even know, all over the planet, is grateful for the peace they have provided for themselves today.
I am grateful for taking the stand for quietness.
I like that posture any day of the week, but I especially like it during the rush of the heavily-laden holidays.
Not only is it a personal stand away from painful family memories, but, also a stand for the right to be an introvert.
This combination works out best for me.
I have already taken care of some holiday expectations/obligations.
I will continue to prepare what I feel is important to me.
I will make my preparations in ways that I feel are most appropriate for me.
I am satisfied with my gifts.
I know the value of what I have to give.
I no longer compete in the rush of media harassment.
I step out of its way.
I proceed in my own way.
I make my own peaceful way.
This is what makes a holiday for me.
