One of my favorite Holiday movies is “Its a Wonderful Life” with Jimmy Stewart. I love it for many reasons. On this weeks show, I use this classic film to illustrate the ways in which the Holidays can be stressful, especially in the arena of relationships.
If you’ve seen the movie, you know that at one point George Baily gets downright depressed and is ready to jump off a bridge into the icy water below.
Many us, during the holidays, have those moments when the “HO, HO, HO” feels more like a “NO, NO, NO”.
Like Clarence in the movie – The New Relationship Reality Show’s “Angels” – help shed some light on ways to make it through the Holidays with joy and peace. These “Angels” bring wisdom on how to create your very own version of “It’s A Wonderful Life”.
My first “Angel” is CPA Tara Conti, who will surprise you with some keys to making peace with your finances during the Holidays. Her advice is down to earth and positively effective. If you have fears in this area and would rather not deal with it, listen up: Tara talks about how you can actually enhance your joy, your finances and your relationships during this time of year.
In the second half of the show you will hear the “Angelic Advice” of Reverend Cathy Norman who has seen it all when it comes to Relationship Holiday Blues.
She has helped thousands over the years with her wise and irreverent tips. She even tells about her own personal “come to Jesus” moment one Christmas Eve in a Denny’s! Her final tip – what makes people truly happy at this time of year – is one we all will be grateful to hear.
