Make sure the little things in your life know they have value. In the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, we can get wrapped up in getting things done, that we forget what we’re doing them for. Make sure the little things know they have value and that finances aren’t the only measure of worth. Sometimes a hug has more value than any gift card can ever buy.
Many people work so hard making sure their holiday season is perfect, that they forget what the holiday season is all about. Start this season out on the right foot and make it more about love and kindness; not the number or size of presents under the tree. Set the tone up front and make this one more meaningful and different from the very beginning.
Watch your dimes and quarters; make sure you remain within your budget. But also remember that the commercialization of this time of year isn’t what this season is all about. And you’re the one who will control that perspective in your household.
Not all families are out of the financial crisis of the Great Recession. People are still fighting tooth and nail to stay afloat or to keep from going under all together. That extra bit of cash you have might do more good if it’s offered to a local food bank, or buy a holiday dinner and take it to your local public school. The counselors there will know the families who could use it most.
The perfect or right gift isn’t the goal you’re shooting for, even if every commercial you see on TV or out in the world is trying to tell you that. You know better. So don’t let them sucker you into thinking everything has to be the ultimate this or that for the rest of the month. Spend more time showing those you care about, that they have more value to you and their presences is what’s important in your life. Gadgets come and go. Family and friends are what’s important in long lasting relationships.
Make sure you take the time to tour the neighborhood and see the lights with family and friends. Go out and be part of the community to watch the local parades or be part of the local festivals to celebrate the Winter solstice. The 12 Days of Yule begin on December 21st. Plan your own gathering of food and warm drink for those who mean the most in your life. Make sure they all know that it’s their presence in your life that really brings the importance to you. Because without them, you may not have anyone to share the moments of excitement and laughter with during the other parts of the year.
