As 2012 comes to a close and with Christmas cheer in the air, I’d like to wish one and all a very Merry Christmas! Not everyone would see this post (or my front door) but I thought I’d write this anyway.
Increasingly commercialised, I need to remind myself that Christmas is so much more than shopping or even exchanging gifts…fun as that can be. It is a time to share with family and friends, celebrate traditions, and also a chance to look back on the year about to close (a good one for me) and forward to the year about to start (a promising one for me). Ironically, it’s a stressful time for many, lonely even. So this is a reminder for me as well to chill out and enjoy the time I do have with family and friends.
I have no new year’s resolutions; haven’t had any for years! Perhaps I’m never resolute enough early in the year. Anyway, change, if desired enough, can happen at any time.
Merry Christmas! Here’s to a happy 2013, full of pleasant surprises, peace and goodwill.
…one can wish….
