Around the holidays, it takes a lot to A) not gain weight and B) not be selfish. All we want to do is kick back, relax, and enjoy our Christmas gifts. The only problem is that the holidays are for celebrating the gift of life itself and cnerishing the family we’ve been blessed with–not how many things we can write down on our Christmas Lists.
The New Year is right around the corner, and it’s bound to be a long one with life changing obstacles. However, before we even reach 2015, we have to leave 2014 behind knowing we were our best selves in the end.
So, remember those who don’t have the means to supply their family or selves with gifts, and remember that the holidays aren’t about giving gifts but giving smiles. Cherish your blessings and remember that what you already have is the greatest present you’ll ever get.
On the not gaining weight side of this article, good luck. I’m still trying to lose the 10 lbs I gained 2 months ago!
Merry Christmas, and I’ll be writing soon on New Year’s Resolutions.
