Happy Holidays!

To celebrate the holiday season, I’d love to share with you a few excerpts from my book, Happy Christmas: 101 Blessings to Be Grateful For All Year Round. Enjoy!

1. Christmas

How wonderful it is to be in the holiday season! You might find yourself decorating the Christmas tree, shopping for gifts, putting up lights, eating candy canes, or sipping hot chocolate by a warm a fire on a cold day. Perhaps you’ll spend time with loved ones, visit family and friends, exchange gifts, go to church, and talk about fond memories of Christmases past. Everywhere you go, there may be festive music playing, and you can’t help but sing along. The child in you may reminisce about leaving cookies for Santa and waking up Christmas morning to see what he left you. The holiday season has different meanings for everyone. Whatever it means to you, celebrate it. Appreciate it. Be grateful that another Christmas has come.

Something to reflect upon: What does Christmas mean to you? What are your fondest memories? What are you most grateful for?

39. Laughter

You’ve heard that laughter is the best medicine. It provides benefits to your physical, emotional, and social well-being. It helps cure worry, doubt, and fear, and adds joy to your life. It just feels good. It’s also contagious; when someone else is laughing out loud, you can’t help but laugh too. Watch a baby giggling when you tickle it and you can’t help but feel its joy. Laughter simply connects us with other people. You can bond by sharing humorous stories, telling funny jokes, or watching comedy movies together. Laughter also helps ease the stress of a difficult situation. In tough times, is there something you can laugh about? Children love to laugh; they laugh genuinely and they laugh often. They can find the joy in the simplest things. Spend time with children. Be child-like in how you approach life. Love life; laugh more!

Encouragement: This Christmas, share a light-hearted memory with your loved ones, appreciate your time together, simply have fun and share some laughs.

84. Living your purpose

Do you know your life’s purpose? Do you know your destiny? Here’s a way you can tell: answer the follow four questions as honestly as you can: What do you love to do? What are you good at? What’s important to you? Deep down, what do you feel you’ve been called to do? These answers lead you to know who you are and what your purpose is. Here’s another way of looking at it: Where can you be of the most service? How can you best serve yourself and others? Where are your services most needed? How can your skills, talents, and gifts benefit society? How can you contribute most to the world? The answers to these questions provide more clarity. Only you know the answer to these questions. If what you’re doing now is aligned with the answers you gave, you feel happy and purposeful. If you dislike what you’re doing, you may need to analyze your responses and make different choices.

Discover: Do you feel like you are living on purpose? What will you do next?

I hope you enjoyed reflecting upon these blessings.  More blessings can be found in the book, Happy Christmas: 101 Blessings to Be Grateful For All Year Round.  Order today, just in time for Christmas!

Seasons Greetings, Lourita
