we take the kindness and compassion of the Christmas
season with us throughout the entire year? Can we
wake up each morning with our focus on the beauty of
whatever season it happens to be, and allow ourselves to
be kind and generous to others? Can we keep in mind
the fact that each day is just as remarkable as the one
before and the one to come, and that it's up to us to make
it a remarkable part of our lives?
no reason to allow the Spirit of Christmas to dissipate in
our hearts and minds. There's no reason for letting
life take over who we are and getting so caught up in the
hurry and hustle and bustle that we forget to see just how
special our lives--and the lives of those around us--are.
Spirit of Christmas is one of kindness, compassion, love,
and giving. These are qualities that we can share
with others every single day that we live, be it Christmas
or summer or some seemingly uneventful Tuesday. And
it's during this season that we can look inside and figure
out just what it is that makes us feel so good, so that we
can take that quality with us throughout the year and
spread the joy that is this season all the time.
of the words that we associate with the season: joy,
hope, peace, love, family, sharing, giving, kindness,
compassion--among others. Aren't these words and
qualities that can benefit our worlds if we bring them
with us everywhere we go, all the time?
