Every year this time we find ourselves indulging in the holiday spirit, eating, celebrating, and spending time with friends and family. After all, that’s what the holidays are about. Cooking, baking and frolicking a little extra. This year has been quite different for all of us and the holidays feel a little different too. For this reason, I wanted to take a step back and look around me rather than inside me to find what will give me that extra happiness.
I was reminded to look outwards these holidays and be extra benevolent this year to spread the holiday cheer. Lets shift our focus outwards instead of inwards for a change and lets teach our children to do the same.
Our community needs us. There are people losing jobs everyday and with the recent lockdown orders, small businesses are taking a hit and being forced to close their doors to the public. With the raging pandemic and news of families losing loved ones everyday, we are reminded of how important it is to cherish the present and take it all in, in the very moment. After all, it’s always the little things that end up bringing the most joy to us.
Lets join hands in spreading kindness and lets teach our children to do the same. Together, we can make this holiday season not just about ourselves but about others too.
