Hope that this year you got all the gifts you needed, not necessarily the ones you wanted. This last year I had a few revelations of my own over the difference between what we wish for, what we want and what we actually need. And guess what?! What we actually need in order to be happy is not much - most of the times it is to be next to the ones you love.

I hope that at least in this season of joy you will open up your hearts to the world and think not only of yourself. Teach Yourself and the ones around you kindness. Start that by having a look at your closets/wardrobes and do a thorough sorting of what you have there. Take all that away and give it to the poor, the homeless, the needy. You don't need dozen of bags and shoes and for sure if you haven't used an item for more than a year you will 99% not use it again. Take that away and make someone happy! Minimalistic living is the way to go!

It's the most wonderful time of the year so open up your heart to joy and laughter and be human. Be nice to the people around you, smile and listen to those in need. If you can't help with physical things you can always help in matters of the heart. Think about the ones you love and try to spend as much time possible as you can with them. You never know what life throws at you and when you will see them again. It's Christmas time so there are queues everywhere... make an elderly person smile by granting them your place in front of the queue. The little things matter the most and we should do them everyday, not just for Christmas... but it's better to start from one Point, one day at a time!
P.S. don't be a Grinch! Dr. Seuss knew what he was talking about: Christmas is a time for love. Let your heart be filled with love and spread the good spirit around - all the year round, if you can! Challenge yourself to be good to others.
Yours very much sincerly,
