I have discovered that it is the small things that can give us the most joy.
Today I was out and about on this last week-end before Christmas and I saw more sad faces, frowns, irritable and rude people. Many were pushing and shoving, upset if someone got ahead them and etc. They were all rush ... rush ... and more rush.
It saddened me to see that they were totally missing the true meaning of Christmas. This is to be a season of giving but with joy in our hearts.
I started smiling at people and saying hello and wishing them a very merry Christmas. It was fun as well as amazing to see some people start to lighten up and actually slow down and enjoy this day.
I found this Christmas Bucket List and it would be a fun list to share with family and actually do together.
Take time and enjoy the small things and fill your heart with joy. You may also have a positive impact on another.
