“The holiday season is a perfect time to reflect on our blessings and seek out ways to make life better for those around us” -Terri Marshall
December is a big month full of family, traditions, and the giving of gifts. We all know how easy it is to get caught up in finding the perfect gift for everyone and hoping you get what you want this year, that *here comes the cliche* we forget what this time is about, and our attitudes can show that.
Instead of being greedy or only gift-focused this year, here are some of our favorite attitudes for the holidays:
1. Grateful: For the people we love, the food on our tables and the roof over our heads. No matter how many gifts we may get this year, try and give thanks for all the good things you have already been blessed with.
2. Kind: To every being you come across this season, show them kindness. Share a smile, say a “hello” and “happy holidays”. Just a smile can make someones day a little brighter.
3. Bee The Change: Come on…is my dollar REALLY going to make a difference to the Salvation Army? Will one kind message to an angry friend or relative REALLY change their heart? Yes and, maybe, yes! Change starts with YOU. Don’t just expect that other people with take care of it or think you can’t make a difference. You can and you will. Show that big heart of yours to the world and things will change!
There are so many different feelings towards the holidays, and we will be starting to share some other attitudes from other amazing women!
We have also started a collection on our site called “Inspired Gifts” for an easy way to shop for your loved ones. With every purchase, you not only give to your friends and families, but also to non-profit Thistle Farms to help women recover from lives of addiction and sex trafficking.
Don’t only be good this holiday season, do good by choosing your attitude + changing the world.
