HURRAY! Its Christmas! Okay, this year really did a number on us and I know that many of us have not gotten the hang of it yet, but firstly I want to say a very big congratulations to us all. YOU MADE IT. Of all the highs and lows, the good and bad, and all sorts of events this rollercoaster of a year filed us in; you’re still standing strong, and for this, you’re more than a conqueror. Now let’s face it, 2021 is on the way, and as much as some of us might have given up on a whole lot of things we had planned for the year 2020, DON’T. This is the perfect time to learn the art of strategizing.
A lot of us had things planned before the Christmas season and as a result of all that transpired in the year, none of those plans came to pass. Although, I want to assure you that being alive is more than a treasure especially in this season, we make so many plans that we don’t even bother to think if we’re still going to be here to achieve them, but look at you, still here, still planning… that is something to be grateful for. We may not have the resources to go out with our family members this season, or travel outside the country as a result of the newly imposed lockdown being put in place by a lot of countries, but there are a list of indoor activities we can always engage in, to spice up the moment.
Some of these activities include; cooking together, playing board games, watching movies, non-stop Christmas songs to liven the air, decorating together, taking pictures together, walking our pets, and a list of other fun activities we can do while being indoors and practicing social distancing. All these activities help in bonding and appreciating the time spent with our family and loved ones. Some of us are workaholics whose jobs take up a lot of family time and maybe, this is a time of reflection for those of us in that category. Take a moment to think about how important this season is for that child you barely see except on weekends, for your partner who only sees a glimpse of you at occasional periods. Do this for them, and in a short while you would realize how beautiful it is to spend time with people you love.
Merry Christmas everyone, I wish you the best holiday ever. May the remaining days of the year be merry and bright to you. Cheers!
