The pumpkins sitting outside my door found a new home today, in the huge dumpster that sits behind my house. The fall colors still linger inside my carefully decorated home, but the red seems to be making a more positive statement in my decor as if to say, THE HOLIDAYS ARE HERE!!!
Thanksgiving is just around the corner; the holiday movies are already making their debut, and you can’t walk into a store without seeing decorated trees and every kind of decoration you can imagine.
Is it too soon????
Maybe all the hype and hoopla to get you to buy early, but the feeling I get from the holiday season is something I cannot explain. And maybe you feel the same way. I wish we could just bottle it up and spread it all over throughout the year. Why is it that people only feel like giving, helping, and being kind at this time of the year? Why can’t we be like this all year long? Just think what the world would be like if we did:)
I decided I’m going to be that kind, generous person all year long. It feels good to give and volunteer your time. I have already been doing that, and I love the feeling I get when I spread joy through my giving to others.
So… as we sit on the edge of Christmas, and all that comes with it, how will you spend the rest of the year? and the months after that?
The best way to live life is to take some risks. So take a step out of your comfort zone; live a little and spread some joy! It can only put a smile on your face:)
May the joy the holiday brings, smile upon you all year long:)
Keep hiking to the top,
