Once again here we are during the holiday season, the time when parents take on a second job to bring in extra money for presents, feel overwhelmed and minds get tired faster due to stress. I say STOP to that! I can not believe for one second a person would seriously go out and get a second job to buy their child(ren) presents, really?! What world are we living in? I say work your best all year round and if your kids do not get everything on their list, GOOD, why do I say good? Because I am a firm believer that holidays are not about gift giving, they are about appreciating the ones you love, they are about doing good and helping others.
For one time out of the year it seems many forget that it’s the gift of giving that warms the heart most. I wish people were as giving all year round as they are during the holiday season honestly. I love even seeing the Grinch’s this time of year, why? Because I am always THAT person who wishes to make them smile. I enjoy putting a smile on other peoples faces and hope this holiday season I am able to put more smiles on other peoples faces than usual!
What is your holiday belief? Do you think it’s about gift giving or is it more of family & appreciation or maybe it’s religious for you? Whatever reasons, just remember to enjoy this time of year, don’t get stressed if you can’t get everything done you had wished to get done, do not let that ruin your family smiles this holiday season!
