What are you doing to get ready for the holidays this year? Running around looking for the perfect gift? Navigating the aisles, the internet, and your house for ideas, products, and parcels?
Whatever you’re doing, as always, I hope you are enjoying it. Many of us spend too much time worrying and not enough time being joyful. When we shop for gifts we worry about money or finding the perfect present.
What if we looked at it from a different angle? We worry about gifts because we want to make others happy. We want to see a genuine smile spread across a specific face when they open our package. We worry because we are caring individuals, we want to please them because we care so much. How lucky are they to have someone that loves them so much? How lucky are we to have people in our lives that we care so much about?
This year, as I think about the people in my life, as I think about giving, I realize how lucky I am to have so many people in my life I want to give things. We can give more than we think, regardless of income. Let someone know how grateful you are to have them in your life. Send out a prayer for someone going through a struggle. Give something away that you already own. Make your own gifts and cards from things you find around your house. Bake someone your favorite food.
Enjoy the process this year! Remember, You love and You are loved. What could be a better gift than that?
