Take time to remember the reason for the season. The world was supposed to end according to some, but we’re all still here. Every day is a gift, don’t take that for granted – even if you’re having a bad day. Pay attention to the taste of your food, look at the sky, laugh loud, often and hard. Breathe deeply and feel the oxygen in your body. Avoid being unnecessarily stressed, overwhelmed and caught up in overblown commercialism and overspending. Remember that people will forget what you said, what you did – and maybe even the gift you gave – but they won’t forget how you made them feel. Spend time with the people you love and love you in return if you can. If you’re alone – don’t be blue, celebrate YOU and be your own gift and shining light.
Most of all don’t forget to spread holiday love, kindness and cheer!
