The holidays are filled with family, food and festive celebration as well as To Do lists that add to our stress and can detract from the enjoyment of the season. From dashing around buying, wrapping and mailing gifts, to planning menus, shopping and preparing food, to making sure we fit in all of the events and parties, we are so busy checking off items on our list that we often lose sight of the meaning of this time of year.
Maybe it’s time to take a step back and rewrite our list. When we change our perspective, that To Do list becomes filled with things the season is really all about.
Live in the moment. Enjoy the task at hand and the people you’re with rather than worrying about what’s to come or what’s happened. Enjoy your now.
Wrap Someone in a Hug
Spread love and warmth with a heartfelt embrace. Hugs are wonderful ways to connect and require no shopping or gift wrap!
In this time of turmoil around the world, we need more people who spread peace, love and acceptance. Be one of those people.
Hunger is prevalent everywhere. Share your abundance with those less fortunate. The spirit of the holidays remind us to give back. Donate food or funds to your local food bank or donate your time to help serve a holiday meal in your community.
Open your heart and send out love to everyone you encounter. Greet people with a smile, a firm handshake, a bear hug. Say, “I love you” to those close to you.
Be The Light
By doing each of these things, you will be the light, a beautiful force of peace, joy, love and gratitude.
