As we are now into the season of the end of year holidays, plus the darker days of winter......people get sad and people get SADD. True emotional shifts take place and we each struggle a bit as we think and feel about Thanksgiving and Christmas and Hanukkah and the New Year rolling in upon us. We are planning or are apprehensive about planning, We are thinking about family and friends, friendships and love affairs, the richness of them or the lack thereof. We aim for the dream and miss time and again. We fail, we falter, we almost reach it and get excited but somehow it seems a bit over to one side or the other.

We need to use the foods of the season to provide comfort and yet we also want to be aware of what we eat and drink so we don't ruin our body or health over the winter. It gets complicated. Auuuggghhh.

What can you do? Really, just one struggle? Shouldn't it be about the multiple struggles that we each have? There is so much that we have to deal with -- the delivery of life on a daily basis gets to be a bit much.
