We are just a day away from the holiday that is Christmas. A week away from the conclusion of the year 2018.
It is a time to appreciate and reflect. To acknowledge those closest to us and remind them just how important they truly are. Not just with expensive gifts but with gestures of kindness and compassion.
Indeed, every day should be one to put others before ourselves. To show our loved ones how much they mean to us and that we are always thinking of them and wishing them the best…but sometimes life can be fast and tense and frightening and we just forget what truly matters: the people.
In 2019 try and take pause more often. Remember the people in your life who make your heart swell and bring a smile to your face. Remind them every day how much they mean to you. Do not wait for some random holiday to arrive and put you on autopilot. And if you’ve found yourself drifting from someone who was once incredibly important to you, take some time to reflect on why that is and if the catalyst is worth the loss. It is never easy to forgive, but sometimes it is easier than living apart.
Life is too short and oftentimes too stressful and too overwhelming that we forget what makes it matter in the first place. So here’s wishing you all a wonderful and peaceful end of year with those you love and I hope that 2019 is something special for each of you. Work towards what makes you happy, but do so while appreciating what, and who, you have now.
Thanks for visiting.
Now go have a fantastic and special end of 2018.
