This time of the year always reminds me of a physical education teacher I had. We had to put on our PE clothes and she would tell us to go outside for COMPULSORY FUN. It is the holiday season, but after the first flush of parties, I begin to wonder if I am having fun sharing yet another puff pastry with someone I see once a year or else with someone I see every day at work. That is when I have to push my thoughts to go beyond the party stage and to the outside sharing stage. By that I mean sharing with someone who can’t possibly return the favor. Good time of the year to give the gift of personal time and treasure to others in shelters, nursing homes, children in the social services homes, etc. The truly amazing thing is by giving we receive so much that sometimes it becomes an all year habit. Not a bad idea.
Real fun starts in the heart and goes to the brain. I tried it and it works. Have you?
Have a meaningful and joyful holiday season.
