As we unwrapped our gifts this Christmas, we realize that having a strong faith, a lovable family, and good food are still the most beautiful presents we can receive this holiday season. And looking back, this year has brought different flavors of life to us. There were a lot of heartaches and disappointments but the year also brought love and hope. By having that retrospect from the beginning of the year up until now, it just means that we can overcome anything if we continue to believe.
In light of this, here are a few things you might want to think about during your yuletide festivities:
The power of faith
Faith has been first and foremost the strong foundation of everything. If everyone has the perspective of getting through the bad days by having trust and confidence in themselves and in God, then the impossible can seem possible. And with the help of their family and good friends, everything will (hopefully) fall back into place.
Be kind to the “grinches” in your lives
Someone in your circle of friends or a family member, perhaps, may have said that they cannot feel the “Christmas spirit,” but that’s just because that “someone” decided not to let it in. Spending the holiday season is always optional and everyone has the choice to either celebrate it or treat it just like any another day. So, there’s honestly no use in fussing about it during Christmas day–just be kind and let them be. It may help to smile at them and continue to spread positivity.
Continue to make family and “new beginnings” the focal points of your Christmas festivities
Christmas is that time of the year when we all can be together and show each other a little appreciation and togetherness. So, celebrate with your family and friends–in spite of all the disagreements and miscommunications that you might’ve had this 2019. Celebrate the birth of Christ and His life, enjoy good food, and cheer for new beginnings this Christmas day!
