A Very Merry Christmas – 2016

Magical-Christmas-Moon Rebellious Coaching Christmas wishes James Cole

Christmas is nearly upon us once again. I swear they are getting closer and closer each year. One could suggest a conspiracy organised by the big corporations of the world, secretly deleting a day each year so they can make more money from us all. Or, which seems waaaaaay less logical, it could just be that as we age, time appears to speed up.

Whatever the reason, I wish you, your family and loved ones the most amazing, happy and safe Christmas this year.

Christmas can be a time of joy and equally a time for misery. We may be thrown together with family members that grate on our nerves and push our buttons. What can start in a worshipping of turkey and cranberry sauce, can end in nothing short of a family riot.

As the empowered individuals we are, it may lay on our shoulders to hold it all together as we remember that no one can steal our happiness unless we allow them to. Being aware of what is going on and reading peoples emotions can be a great way of knowing you need to diffuse a situation before it even arises. The best way to conquer any negativity is at it’s birth, when it is weakest.

How?

  • You could casually change the subject. It may seem random at the time, but if you include those heading for disaster in the new subject, maybe asking their thoughts on it or to contribute some how, they’ll soon forget what they were actually talking about it.
  • Ask if you can get the offenders a drink or something to eat. Get specific with it so as to distract them enough that they loose their train of thought. Maybe ask one of them to help so that you can seperate them.
  • Crack a joke. Doesn’t matter how bad it is. Sometimes the worse the joke, the better it works. You may become the focal point of some roasting but that’s okay. Better you who can handle it than those who are going create World War III.
  • My favourite approach (maybe it’s all the Charlie Chaplin movies I watched as a kid) is to be klutz. Drop something, trip over something, fall down, walk into a door… Do it loud and do it with humour. Slapstick is a goldmine of distractions and can be a blast to see peoples reactions. I occasionally do this just for fun even when it’s not needed. Just don’t hurt yourself if this is your approach.

These are just a couple of really simple solutions to diffusing the tensions that may arise over Christmas. How do you survive Christmas, or any family gathering for that matter?
