Ah, this time of year. It’s one where you should enjoy time with loved ones and celebrate having one other. Many of us loose sight of the real meaning of this beautiful holiday. Contrary to popular belief, it’s not the holiday where you get what ever you’ve been asking for, all year. It’s the time of year to give thanks for the things you have and the people that are still here who you’re able to spend this special time with.
I understand we get so wrapped up (pun intended) in getting the perfect gift or feeling guilty because we’re not able to spending a lot of money on our loved ones’. But, the amount given should never be the focus of the giving. The focus should be the thought and love that you put into deciding on the perfect thing for them. A lot of people probably think that’s straight up B.S., because that’s not the way a lot of us living during these times think; but it’s the way we need to start thinking.
Have you ever took notice of people who have plenty money and seem to have the perfect life? Those people who are use to having money don’t worry about the dollar amount of a gift. The gift many times is from the heart, and something personal that shows how much they care and know the person. So this holiday try giving with your heart and not your wallet.
