Yes, you can. I remember those Xmas lights... Now I work then out together with my daughter. I can finally enjoy the process of decorating the tree with those I love and witnessing the joy it brings my children instead if seeing the unhappiness in others who don't know how to find their joy in the meaningful things of life.
“You are not a victim. No matter what you have been through, you're still here. You may have been challenged, hurt, betrayed, beaten, and discouraged, but nothing has defeated you. You are still here! You have been delayed but not denied. You are not a victim, you are a victor. You have a history of victory.” ― Steve Maraboli, Unapologetically You: Reflections on Life and the Human Experience - Google Search
