Hear the kick

It’s starting again.

The doubt.
The self-doubt.
It eats away at us.

I hear it in my head. I hear it in the air. I hear it in the voices of the people around me. I wonder a little if it’s because the holidays kick us so hard that we can’t help but doubt our own greatness.

I don’t mean to suggest that the holidays aren’t great. I love them, I do. I love the excitement, the moment, the build up and the goodness that is inherently found wrapped up in the holidays. The friends looking out for friends, the scraping of coins so that charity can be handed out to those less fortunate, and the warmth and wonder of it all as people open their homes and host each other for gatherings that range from pretentious to casual.

But no matter what beautiful expectations you have awaiting you between Thanksgiving and New Years Day, there is some kind of emotional KICK that goes with this season.  

Here’s hoping that it’s not a kick in the face.
