Merry Christmas to you and all of your family from truthfulnotneutral.net. I hope you have an amazing day with the ones that you love. Christmas, more than any other holiday, is about spending time with the ones you love, and celebrating and cherishing the time that you have together. Personally I am unable to be with my family this year, but as I stop to reflect on all of the blessings in my life I am so thankful for all of them, and my heart is with them all in spirit.
One remarkable contrast between the young and old is how the joy associated with Christmas shifts from that of a mindset of receiving, to a mindset of giving. There is inherent joy in giving. It is a basic human instinct to help others, and Christmas is wonderful time highlight that spirit.
It’s A Wonderful Life…
Christmas is also a wonderful time to think about ways to help those less fortunate than yourself. There are fantastic organizations who provide children in need with the Christmas experience, as well as many opportunities to volunteer.
The news surrounding Christmas can range from the heartwarming to the absurd, if there was ever a day to take a second and just be human and enjoy life, and not worry about the news or turmoil in the world, this is the day.
But more than anything, take the time to appreciate the ones you love today. These are the times you will look back on, and it is a wonderful opportunity to stop and smell the roses. So Merry Christmas everyone! I hope you all have a wonderful day with all of the ones you love.
