I know I’m not alone when I saw that my world isn’t Christmas-card-ready. This can be a difficult time of year for people for a laundry list of reasons.
What does the holiday season mean to you? Is it strictly about the gifts, the festive menus, the Christmas music, and the artfully decorated homes? I think the older I get, the less it is about that and the more it is about those intangibles, as hokey as that may sound.
So many little split seconds come together to make the holidays magical. That’s why (to me at least) the holidays are made for making unforgettable moments, no matter if they are loud or quiet. Cheer doesn’t need to be loud, just sincere. It’s about spending quality time with friends and family (and just maybe about finding a moment of “me” time to reflect). Maybe it’s also about finding a star and making a wish or two – like for peace on earth. That’s a classic that we are still aiming for. I think it’s worth a shot.
I hope your holiday season brings some happiness to you and yours. Merry Christmas.
