Being content

In this holiday season of running around trying to find that perfect gift sometimes you need to take a moment and take in the fact that you are content in what you already have. Isn’t it so hard to find the right gift for the older adult in your life? That’s because they have everything they need. Right? If they don’t they should. I know in this world of being a consumer sometimes you have to think about the fact that you have drawers and closets overflowing with items you never even wear. What about the kitchen? My goodness, I have more gadgets then anyone should have and most I don’t even use. I’m going through that phase life where I think  should I really keep it if I use it once a year?

Let’s just remember that giving the perfect gift is nice but it’s not the reason for the season. Gifts aren’t what this holiday is about. It’s about family, love and faith. So whether you say Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah or Happy Kwanzaa it doesn’t matter.  We say Merry Christmas or just simply Happy Holidays. What matters is that you have faith and are happy and content. Don’t get caught up in the verbiage and being offended that someone said Happy Holidays to you. Maybe they just wanted to make sure that they included Happy New Year as well as the December events.  Let’s focus on being content and happy with where we are and the abundance that we already have.

  1. Yes, I agree. I like to send gifts from Harry & David as my parents have everything they need, but appreciate the beautiful fruits during the holidays.

    Merry Christmas!
