I planned to make this post a post about all the things I wanted this December. Then I sat back and thought, is that not a selfish thing to do ? Is it not selfish for me for want things that would only benefit me. Is it not selfish to think about only myself and nothing else. Yes you work all year long, yes it’s okay to want that new pair of sneakers, maybe a bottle of champagne here and there, that 18 year old whiskey your dad wants, but maybe just once lets think about others for a change. Just one year.
It’s always sad this time of the year, most of us are enjoying a warm Christmas meal and family time
and the rest live out on the street, all alone and with an empty stomach.
I am probably not in a financial position to put those less fortunate into a home or anything but I could probably buy a few people a warm meal and some thing to drink. I urge you to lend a hand to some one in need this festive season, And no you won’t get anything in return besides a very grateful ‘thank you’. And that’s OK. The little we do, could mean a lot to some one else.
You might not even need to do much, donate some old clothes or toys, volunteer in a soup kitchen for a couple of hours, Bake some cupcakes – hand them out at street corners, take part in Santa’s shoebox initiative or just spend some time with some one who needs it.
I hope this won’t be my last post for 2015, but if it is, Merry Christmas to all those who celebrate
and a happy new year to everybody, may your new years resolutions be realistic and champagne be bubbly.
Love and Light – Bini.
