Holiday Season – It’s the time of the year when we spend extra time with our beloved ones, family and friends, celebrate, exchange gifts, having a wonderful time. And be happy.
What is it that makes us happy? Is it the special time of Christmas? Or is the moments where we make other people happy that give us this special kick? Or is the many little things that make us happy, that make these days truly special?
Personally, I think it is the combination of these things. And more? Whatever it is, enjoy it, live it, feel it, be actively aware of these special moments, be and live in the present to the fullest.
And then, go a step further and ask yourself how you can carry this spirit to tomorrow, next week, next month and next year. I am not talking about developing a big new year’s resolution – which most people tend to forget after a few days anyway. I am talking about a simple, yet possibly disturbing, life-changing and at the same time exciting thing: being yourself.
When you start being yourself, amazing things will happen. Not for last, you will be happier. Explore yourself, be.
Then share your experiences. Create the space for others to find and accept themselves. This way you, too, can contribute to making others happier. And this in return will make you even happier.
Simple? Yes. But who says that happiness has to be difficult to find. It’s already here.
