Holiday Blues Got You Down? Here’s How to Ditch Them!

holiday_bluesAlthough the holiday season can bring a sense of excitement and joy for many people, it can arouse feelings of sadness, stress and loneliness for others.  From the hustle and bustle of cooking, shopping, and entertaining, to the social engagements and often unrealistic expectations, “’tis the season” can generate a not so merry and bright feeling in the hearts of many.  Fortunately, there are things you can do to experience a holiday season that is more joyful, if you choose to do so.

Since your thoughts create our reality, be sure to notice your thoughts during this time.  Choose to have different thoughts and feelings about the holiday season so that you rewrite the stories from your past and start to create new and happier memories.

If  the triggers or patterns from the past keep you stuck and repeat themselves every year at this time, choose a different way of interacting. Before you simply react (as you have many times before), challenge yourself to see things from another perspective.  Ask yourself, “What if I could see this situation from a different vantage point, more objectively or from the other person’s point of view?”  Pay attention to what you are physically feeling and notice how your body is responding to the stressful or upsetting situation.  If possible, get to a place where you can close your eyes and do some deep breathing so you can begin to feel more peaceful.  From this space, it will be easier to work through your feelings and open yourself to see things with more empathy and compassion.

Recognizing that certain environments and people have triggered your reactions over the years can allow you the freedom to choose to have a different response this year, or participate for a shorter time.

Another way to ward off the holiday blues is to make sure you practice the art of extreme self-care.  What do you need to be happy “normally”?  Can give yourself a little extra?  More sleep, more time to be alone (or less), more exercise. Sometimes a treat, like a facial or a massage, can work wonders.  Be very attentive to taking care of you.
If you’re missing your loved ones, the holiday season can be especially lonely. Be gentle with yourself.

Don’t stuff your emotions, allow yourself to feel them, even if they’re not comfortable. Be proactive by setting up a support system before the holidays. If you’re feeling down, don’t hesitate to support for yourself by reaching out to others.  You are not alone! There are plenty of people feeling the same way you are.

You can also boost your spirits by volunteering or being of service to others. Since giving and receiving are the same, you will feel better about yourself when you reach out to support other people.

If you find that memories of holidays past generate sadness, why not find new ways to celebrate the holidays by creating a different tradition?  It’s also important to take time for yourself by exercising, or walking in nature, and be sure to get enough rest.

Are finances a source of stress or anxiety this time of year? There are many ways you can give a meaningful gift without spending any money at all!  The gift of your time by running errands, babysitting or pet sitting, housecleaning etc, might be greatly appreciated by your loved ones.  You may be providing them with a solution to a problem that has been causing them stress!  These services can add up quickly so if they are short on funds, your gift would be most welcome.

Finally, it’s more important than ever during the holidays to set good boundaries.  It’s okay to say no to things that you don’t want to do.  Sure, some people may be disappointed but don’t feel guilty about choosing to do what would be the best for you.   After all, this is your holiday season too!

Give yourself the the gift of the extra time, attention and love you need and deserve this season so you can be relaxed and joyful… and enjoy your holidays!

Another $500 Million Down the Tube?

Five years ago, when the earthquake struck Haiti killing over 200,000, I donated a significant sum to the Red Cross. I was not alone. Millions of people were touched by the plight of a people violently stripped of their homes in  matter of seconds. Half a billion dollars was raised by the Red Cross to rebuild Haiti. Screen Shot 2015-06-03 at 11.31.09 PMAlas, the Red Cross, skilled in relief management, had never managed reconstruction before. Sadly the results were similar to the 10 billion dollars in relief aid that never reached the people in direst need. Thousands of people are still living in desperate conditions years after the earthquake.

NPR and ProPublica have been following the money trail, and share the saga of poor money management, thoughtless spending and unfounded claims of successful projects.

The Red Cross brochures claim they rebuilt the neighborhood of Campeche, much to the surprise of the residents. None of the work promised by the Red Cross in a 2012 booklet has been done. No homes, clinics, water or bathroomsThe project cost $24 million.

According to Meltzer, the Red Cross attorney, restoring shelter has been  a top priority. He said that the Red Cross has been instrumental in bringing housing to over 130,000 Haitians. Unfortunately, that number is grossly exaggerated.

After extensive correspondence with NPR and ProPublica by email, the Red Cross has finally admitted that the number of 130,000 Haitians is actually comprised of several groups it assisted in some way. Some had attended a seminar on fixing their homes, some had received temporary housing, some had received temporary rental aid. Temporary housing tends to self destruct after a short period of time, leaving the people in the same situation they were in before.

While there has been gross mismanagement of so many international projects to rebuild Haiti, there are organizations that are making a difference in Haiti. Some of the most successful are staffed and managed in large part by Haitians. For example, Global Communities and PCI have built more than 300 multifamily homes in the Ravine Pintade neighborhood. These home are complete with bathrooms and kitchens.

I don’t know about you, but I am angry and outraged at the incompetency and mismanagement that has plagued the relief efforts to rebuild Haiti. It’s not rocket science to build houses. Simple tin roof houses of concrete with 3 or 4 rooms can be built for under $5,000.00 using local materials and local labor.

I’m working closely with my longtime friend, Gladys Thomas, to build homes for earthquake survivors and I hope you will join me in this project. Gladys, founder of the Foundation for the Children of Haiti, is building a technical school near the site of the future Haiti Housing Project homes. She has a great track record, having successfully built schools, outreach programs and one of the best hospitals in Port-au-Prince.

Join us today to make a difference and be the change. It’s a big project and we need help to make it a reality.

Be The Change You Want to See!

Gandhi

Mahatma Gandhi

You have the power to change the world. Don’t take my word for it… Think about it! How many political changes, social transformations, or inventions have occurred because someone boldly stepped forward and initiated them?

Where would India be if Gandhi had played safe and small? What  if Martin Luther King had kept his dream to himself, would the United States still be segregated? What kind of technology would we have if Steve Jobs had not taken computers seriously?

I’m not saying you need to play big to change the world… the simple act of choosing love and peace over anger and recrimination sends ripples of love out into the universe! You know what feels right! If you see an act of injustice, you can do something about it. Be the change you want to see!

Recently I watched an episode of VICE, an investigative reporting series on HBO, exposing the blatant misuse of TEN BILLION DOLLARS in aid funding to Haiti. It was supposed to provide housing and a better lifestyle for the thousands of earthquake victims. Instead, it’s five years after the earthquake, yet only one cent per dollar went to the people. Chemonics, one of the “for profit” companies contracted for the relief project, built an $18,000,000 soccer stadium and multimillion dollar cultural center in the norther town of Coracol, that was not affected by the earthquake, and provided no aid for the inhabitants. Thousands of people are still living under plastic sheeting in unsanitary conditions, yet a multimillion dollar gated housing community was built for the US Aid workers.

I was outraged. You see, I lived in Haiti for seventeen years, and I care very much about the Haitian people. I know that clean, simple cement block housing can be built for under $5,000.00 for a three or four room house, with a tin roof. I decided to do something about it. I reached out to my friend Gladys Thomas, founder of The Foundation for the Children of Haiti. I shared my vision with her and we are collaborating on the Haiti Housing Project. Gladys is a woman who knows how to get things done. She has built an orphanage, schools, outreach programs, and one of the finest hospitals in Port-au-Prince.

HAITI FIVE YEARS LATER…

marbeth_haiti_borderI’ve had a love affair with Haiti for decades. I lived there for 17 years as a painter and graphic artist. My own spiritual awakening was birthed in Haiti! And the people, with their rich cultural heritage were inspirations for my artistic adventures.

My close, energetic connection with this island nation guided me at 5 pm on January 12, 2010, to turn on the TV, ( I, who NEVER watches the news),  as horrific images of the earthquake’s devastation unfolded before my eyes.

Fast forward to April 2015, when the  HBO investigative reporting series VICE, exposes the blatant misuse of the $10 billion of aid earmarked for housing the earthquake victims. I am outraged to learn that only one cent of every dollar reached the people. The investigative reporter discovers that ninety three million dollars built only 2,600 homes. Much of the money from Chemonics, a for profit company, was directed to build a world class $18,000,000 soccer stadium and multi million dollar cultural center, but no housing or other improvements in Coracol, a village in the north, not affected by the earthquake. Millions of dollars were spent building beautiful homes in a gated community for US AID employees, but almost no housing for the people who needed it.

As I move into my beautiful new home, the thought of thousands of gentle Haitians still living on the streets under plastic sheeting, without plumbing, easy access to clean water, or hope is too much to bear. I know that clean, sturdy housing can be provided for families at a very low cost – under $5000.00 for a three or four room cement block house with a porch and a tin roof. With my intimate knowledge of Haiti, I know who can get the job done efficiently.

I Skype Gladys, a trusted friend who heads an organization for Haitian children she founded thirty years ago. She’s excited! Together we are working creating a project to build houses in the South of Haiti for those affected by the earthquake.  The project we envision will have oversight.  The housing recipients will meet certain qualifying criteria. They will enroll in the technical school Gladys is building, so that they will gain literacy, learn simple administrative skills, and gain the tools to run a business. They will actively participate in building their home. It feels good!

Would you like to make a difference and be part of the Haiti Housing Project? I’m currently forming a committee to get the ball rolling!  If you would like to learn more, or are interested in being part of this exciting project, in any capacity, let me know by sending me a message through the “Contact Us” / “Let’s Talk” app on the bottom of this page.

[Video] Overcoming Adversity

I think the quote below sums up the video I’m sharing with you today quite well. Take just a couple minutes to watch it and then ‘pass it along’ to others! ‘It seems to me we can never give up longing and wishing while we are thoroughly alive. There are certain things we feel to be beautiful and good, and we must hunger after them.’ ~ George Eliot
