Who's Ready For The Holidays???

Who's Ready For The Holidays???

This has been one crazy year filled with so much emotion. How are you going to feel this year? I know I can't wait for this year to be over and I'm grateful to still be here. But lots of people are off cause of covid and feeling down. How do you feel?

Im going to do my best to enjoy the holiday's. All the holidays i was in the grieving process and/of high, i dont get those back, so i promised myself I'd never let one pass without being a part of it again. I started this year early

Man U ain’t lying! I hope this election doesn’t destroy our country. I hate that we have become so divided. We should learn to love one another and lift each up regardless of our beliefs and opinions.
Love will conquer all!

It's going to be an interesting holiday season. I decorate the house for all the holidays in fact I've already decorated the house for Halloween despite the fact that I don't know if the kids are coming yet. But I've always kept the holiday spirit because the way I see it perhaps if someone who's alone passes my house and they see all the lights and the trees and maybe some candy or cookies, they'll forget about their hardship ....just for a little moment. 🎄💫💫💫💫...Thank you for the question ❤️

Hey @A myHIVteam Member! Good question! The holidays are going to be very different for a few reasons, corina virus withstanding.
First, I just got out of prison June of this year and my halfway house isn't over until the first week of November..... The 8th to be exact, with my birthday being the first of the month. So my holiday wouldn't truly begin until Thanksgiving, in which case I'll be thankful to God, for getting me through 6 years at the biggest prison complex in the states.
After being sentenced to and surviving 72 months at Coleman FCI, I'm grateful to still be in one piece but I digress.... Thanksgiving, I plan on cooking as big of a meal than I can fiscally afford!! GOD I MISS COOKING!! Not sure where I'll be living at in Savannah Georgia just yet but it's going to be weird celebrating the holidays, after not being able to celebrate them for 6 years. Christmas? Being out of prison and being able to look forward to a new year without being oppressed and abused just because they could, is worth more to me than gold! New year's? Hummm.... Hopefully, Joe Biden will be president after... So assuming the United States isn't in fit of civil war, I'll like to think that me focusing on myself and being the best man I can be, spiritually, mentally and physically, is more than an ambitious plan. We'll see what happens and what's going on with the Corona virus at that point. Didn't mean to bring your thread down but this has been a screwed up year, in more ways than one and not just for me.
I'll always stay as positive as I can but I'm a realist and honest to a fault... Literally! So it is with most men living with autism spectrum syndrome. We all have our quirks, regardless. I'm just thankful to still be alive! Quite a few of my friends died during my incarceration.... A couple of them by their own hand. At one point in my life, I almost chose the same path. Life is a story and it's our job to make it the best story that we can!
Thank you Dr. James, for giving me that prospective on life! If not for him, not sure I'd be here now, which would suck and not in a good way! LOL. So that's my outlook on how this year is going and how I pray the new one begins....
