During the Christmas season, do you frantically shop for deals, attend numerous parties and create your own wish list in your mind? Amidst this fast pace, we run around like chickens with our heads cut off…for what?! For the next week and half try “slowing down” with these 3 suggestions:
1) Be Thankful. Sometimes our schedules get so busy, we forget about our family and friends in our lives. Christmas doesn’t mean much without loved ones to spend it with. Remember to be thankful for all the people who make your life better.
2) Focus on Giving. I love picking out the perfect gift for someone else. It’s a way to say, “Thank you. I appreciate you being a part of my life.” It’s nice to receive gifts, but there’s a sense of accomplishment and joy when we can give to others freely without expecting something back in return.
3) Identify the Purpose. Why do you celebrate Christmas? If there’s no reason behind the season, don’t go through the motions for tradition’s sake. Celebrating an event should have meaning; otherwise, there’s no point. For me, Christmas is sharing God’s love and remembering Jesus’ birth long ago.
Make this Christmas different by being thankful, focused on giving to others and understanding why you celebrate it!
