Lessons from a Recovering Doormat

Lessons from a Recovering Doormat


Manhattan is Da Bomb around Christmas



I’ve spent Christmas in Florida and California. I see it in other places on TV. But nothing—literally NOTHING—can compare to my city at holiday time. When friends from out of town visit during this time of year, I love to take them walking and exclaim, “Look how beautifully my neighborhood dresses up for the holidays!”

Rows of trees with twinkly lights line the streets. Garlands, bells and other pretty decorations are strung above our heads on many avenues.

I’m sure many other neighborhoods are gorgeous too. But mine is the most festive. And then there’s the tree at Rockefeller Center, which I can just walk over to whenever I want. That’s part of my neighborhood too!

Going outside from Thanksgiving to New Years puts me in a particularly grand mood. I included a few pics to show you why I love New York at Christmastime. I took them at night in the rain so they’re not as clear as the real view. But I love how the lights twinkle in the dark of night. I posted my Rockefeller Center tree and the side of the Saks Fifth Avenue building. I couldn’t get close enough to get their glorious windows.

HAVE A VERY-VERY-VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS SEASON! Let the spirit buoy you into the New Year with a great big smile!?

Are You a Needy People Magnet?
Do you find yourself surrounded by people who need you for something? Do you tend to end up with romantic partners who need fixing? It’s common, especially for DoorMats who have people pleasing as part of their M.O.  I did when I was a DoorMat. These needy folks would bring me down with their dem
