The Real Spirit of the Holidays

I’ll be honest, while I like a good deal as much as the next gal, the whole “Black Friday” craziness makes me faintly sick to my stomach.  So, here’s a little antidote to all the overshopping madness.  I hope it gets your holiday season off to a great start!  Here’s an adorable Christmas puppy just for you just to get you in the right mood.

The Real Spirit of the Holidays

This is a post that I thought really embodies the true spirit of the holidays. It’s from Rhonda Britten, star of one of my favorite shows “Starting Over” and a wonderful author of a series of Fearless Living books.

How to Get Back to the Real Spirit of the Holidays…

– Spend time with someone you love.
– Forgive a person that has hurt you.
– Remember your innocence.
– Help another in need.
– Count your blessings.
– Say a prayer when actions won’t help.
– Say you’re sorry.
– Be patient with sales clerks, slow lines and other frustrated customers.
– Make kindness a priority.
– Give a gift for no other reason than to make another smile.
– Wear something out of the ordinary that makes you feel magical and amazing.
