"You are lovable not for what you
do. You are lovable for who you are." - Alan Cohen
Most of us buy into the hype of
Christmas one-way or the other. Look at what we (pardon me if you are the
exception) do …
A home has more lights on it than
Target has had in stock collectively for the past two years.
Many will purchase gifts in hopes of
strengthening relationships. They know they'll be loved even more ...
3 trees were needed, one for the
expensive designer decorations, another for entertaining and the third for all
of the gifts – oops I forgot the small ones in the office, the kitchen, and the
bedroom - don't forget the bathroom.
More is better. Spend more money – it’s
better. Shut off the responsible switch and go into “Yes, Yes, Yes!” to every
imaginable gift – you know they’ll love it. Don’t think about the credit card
bill coming in – Bah-humbug! Stay with the bliss of shopping, it’s only once a
year! The ether of this shopping is so mesmerizing …
Be Martha Stewart – Do it all!
And .... eventually it all catches up
with us …
Like Martha Stewart, we aren't exempt.
Lying – to yourself or to others … a disguise will backfire.
For those of you that this is
applicable consider changing your approaches this year … give the gift of love
by being you – that’s all they really want anyway.
