I know I have been MIA for some time: I was in a nomad state of mind for a while. As the year draws closer to the closing paragraph and the Christmas /holiday season is on us, I was compelled to post this blog.
As we Rush to the mall or these days online to do last minute shopping,
As we decorate our houses,
As we board our flights,
As we make our lists and checking them twice;
Let’s not lose sight of what’s important about this time of year. The magic doesn’t only come from the Christmas lights and decorations but also from Giving. I don’t know about you but I feel really good inside whenever I give (that fuzzy feeling that brings a smile to your face and heart).
It’s the season of love, giving, connecting and reflecting. I don’t know who wrote this quote but it fits perfectly for this message: “To give up one’s very self – to think only of others – how to bring the greatest happiness to others, that is the true meaning of Christmas”.
“Start where you are with what you have” ….a quote I have been holding close to my heart lately. Whether your gesture is great or small, reach out and touch someone even if they will never know you did. This could be a donation to a charity you relate to, a smile or even a phone call to someone you have lost touch with. It amazes me as I grow how small gestures can make the greatest impact.
May this season brings you happiness, peace and warmth.
Tis the season to be jolly……
Surprise yourself this holiday season by doing something you have never done but have always have it in your heart to try.
Thank you for following my blog for the past 6 months.
Until next time…..walk good and….
“whatever you choose to do, do it with a smile”
