Holiday Stress



This season, try not to get caught up in the stress and pressure that can be put upon us in these upcoming days. Remember, you won't do anyone any good if your down and out and not around (well, most of us anyway)

Remember to take a deep breath and relax when you feel the pressure coming on. Drink in moderation, especially if your going to be out and about in public like our friend Frosty here.

Happy holidays and a Happy New Year to all.




Oh, and don't forget to vote on my Self Portrait portfolio I'll need all the help i can get! :)

Wise advice.. from you and Frosty! :) Have a great Christmas, Gary. Thanks for your visits and kind comments. :)

Good advice...Frosty was probably suffering from over-indulgence or stress, as you describe.....not how we want to end up over the holidays!!

Have enjoyed our exchanges Gary and look forward to further connections in the new year.

All the best to you and yours over the holidays.

I love your work & I don't know what special words to say except "wow!" which isn't spectacular enough to describe your spectacular work! Happy Christmas from Tokyo!

Wow ~ Frosty was so close to making it through the holiday season! Perhaps he will get his 'second wind' today! :)

Thanks for the advice ~ Happy Holidays to you!

Ahhh, poor Frosty. A holiday face plant is an undesirable result. LOL

Have the very best my friend!

HA! Love the tie-in (or was it a tie-on??) with Frosty there! :) We don't do the whole "holiday stress" thing-- in my family & home, presents come when you see something that speaks of someone, not b/c it's official present day as determined by Christmas, birthday, etc... Usually we just gather and enjoy company of whomever was able to make it to the gathering from wherever. :)

Well, I was just poppin' in to thank you for all your wonderful words this year, on my blog and yours, and to send warmest wishes for a 2010 full of beauty, rewarding experiences, and laughter.

So, now, for my efforts I gotta go vote for your "you-pics," eh? Well, OoooK. ;) Best of Luck Gary!

Correctly! On holidays it is necessary to relax.
