Merry Christmas and a Cracking New Year

Hello and Merry Christmas!

Christmas is generally a time for family, for fun and laughter but I want you to be happy every day. Indeed, my whole purpose in life is to be happy and to help you be happy too.

As it’s Christmas and because I’m slightly crackers, for this week’s Prescription for Success I’m going to pull a cracker with you to see what is inside.

I can tell you, there are some interesting messages in my cracker –  some serious messages and some less serious ones. Watch the video to find out more…

So let’s start with the less serious lot, the first message was:

“Why would people come and see Dr Bridget?”

Because they have low ELF-esteem

Indeed, I work with people with low self-esteem who aren’t believing in themselves and they’ve not got much confidence so while the joke was funny it is a serious thing.

The second message was:

“People come and see Dr Bridget because they need a prescription because they’ve been eating Christmas decorations and they’ve got TINSIL-litis” 

The third one was a slightly controversial one

“Did you know that Liz Truss got sacked as the Nativity manager because she couldn’t run a STABLE government “… okay.

The next one is a quote from Winston Churchill

“Christmas is a season not only of rejoicing but of reflection”

I’d just like to invite you to take some time out to reflect on what’s happened for you this year. I know that the New Year is a time for new year’s resolutions and I will do a little bit of a different take but reflect on what went well this year. We tend to forget about what went well, and only remember the things that didn’t go well. If you remember the things that didn’t go well what did you learn from them and what are you going to avoid repeating next year?

Next there is a quote from Phyllis Diller who was an American comedian

“Christmas is a time when everyone wants his past forgotten and his present remembered”

A bit of ambiguity with this, we all want our present remembered but also our past forgotten. As you probably know when you’ve been listening to me I’m an expert in helping people to let go of emotions and things from the past.

So if that’s happened to you this year and you want your past forgotten and your present remembered and also to create your future. I just want you to remember that you can create how your day goes  and you can create how your week, your month, and your next year goes.

You can choose how to respond to things each day and in the future. I just want you all to be in charge of your life and to be happy and that’s where I come from really so get in touch once the Christmas dinner’s gone down and let’s make 2023 really great.

Until next time

Dr Bridget
