Welcome back to another edition of the Carnival of Positive Thinking. This weeks edition is the timeout edition. I am calling a timeout so that everyone can remember what the holidays are for: giving thanks for all that we have, appreciating everyone that is in our lives and believing that there are great things in store for us. Too many times we get caught up in the moment of the season – buying gifts that people really don’t need or have a use or being short with others because of all of the craziness. Take a timeout, step back and remember what the holidays are all about.

Jana presents The Pitfalls To Participating in A Pity-Party posted at Wisdom Ink, saying, “Emotions are a normal part of life; the more we embrace them the more they cease to be a lingering problem in our lives. Here we talk about pity, a specific emotion that can create not only and endless loop of misery, but also how it is an emotional game played with others.”
