Dear Everyone In The Universe:

I know that the winter holidays are coming/here, and this is a stressful, emotional time for all of us. It may be hard to get into the holiday spirit, especially with the economy the way it is.

However, I would like to make a request: Please, during this season at least, think hard before reacting from your gut. Remember that the people with whom you interact are also stressed and emotional. Remember that your hard day is not their fault, just as their hard day is not your fault. Please do not take your troubles out on the people around you. Take some time for understanding--you may be surprised what you get back.

In other words, please, please, PLEASE, play nice. I'm not asking you to be a doormat or just let people be mean to you. I'm just asking you to be extra-conscious of what you say and how you say it as you interact with others during this season. Also, I'm not asking any of you to do something that I wouldn't--I commit, right now, to the valiant attempt of not biting people's heads off, of trying to assume the best of people, of working to stay in the mode of "peace on earth and goodwill toward men/women/others." I hope that this will make this time of year better, not only for those around me, but also for myself.

Thank you.
