Last week I talked about how to deal with those rude, obnoxious people you've undoubtedly been encountering in spades this holiday season. Bad drivers, selfish shoppers, lazy, incompetent customer service people...and the list goes on. We joked a little, tongue in cheek, about 5 ways to handle these Grinchy Grinch Grinches without loosing it completely and hauling off and punching anyone in the face. We can all agree how tempting that sometimes is. And I suspect we can all agree that it's never a good idea to actually follow through. My hope is that my suggestions snapped you out of that festering frustration and neutralized any lingering visions of a smackdown. But what if they didn't? What if - bear with me here - what if that anger caused your heart to shrink a little? Maybe one, maybe two, possibly even three sizes too small! That's right. What if YOU have become the very Grinch you so dread and despise? Here are some simple questions designed to determine if the unthinkable has indeed occurred: Do you have a case of the bah-humbugs? Feeling the urge to kick an elf? Any desire to knock over a few glittery trees? Does the thought of stealing gingerbread men out of the mouths of cheery little children produce a deep sense of satisfaction? Does this song sound romantic to you? https://youtu.be/tWFaP1tkGgM If you can answer yes - or even maybe - to one or more of these questions, you may be suffering from a classic case of Grinchitus. Left untreated, you could actually kill Christmas. That's right; I said you could potentially murder the most wonderful time of the year! Do I have your attention? Are you ready to nip this thing in the bud and return to your formerly holly jolly self? Good. Sit back, hit play, and lighten up, buttercup...'cause I'ma tell you exactly what to do. With not 1, not 2, but 3 surefire tips to grow your heart 3 sizes - back to its original warm and fuzzy Christmasy-ness - STAT!
