All I want for Christmas
I often come across beautiful things that move me in such a way that it just makes me want to share it with my readers and, this was one of them. Christmas is just days away and small gestures like this – go such a long way! More than you can ever imagine. It’s good to be reminded of the people we are grateful for. Our relationships and friendships no matter what form, is such a blessing. I myself would like to practice doing this, as a New Year resolution, to become more positive and to be able to touch the lives of others. This was the reason I made this blog in the 1st place because, I hope that these little reminders might just make someone’s day a little brighter. Or maybe even give them the peace they have always yearned for.
I would love to ask the people in my life – if you could do one thing for me, this Christmas. It would be to do what I have written below; Is there anyone in your life right now, to whom you might want to extend your gratitude to? or perhaps someone you wish to forgive? It could be someone you loved, someone you cherish till this day. This will only take a small amount of your time, just try to remember the good things and the blessings in your life… I bet you will be glad you did this!
A TREAT FOR YOURSELF:
Once a week write a heartfelt letter
This is an exercise that has helped to change many lives, assisting people in becoming more peaceful and loving. Taking a few minutes each week to write a heartfelt letter does many things for you. Picking up a pen or typing on a key board slows you down long enough to remember the beautiful people in your life. The act of sitting down to write helps to fill your life with gratitude.
Once you decide to try this, you’ll probably be amazed at how many people appear on your list. I had one client who said, “I probably don’t have enough weeks left in my life to write everyone on my list. “this may or may not be true to you, but chances are, there are a number of people in your life, or from your past, who are quite deserving of a friendly heartfelt letter. Even if you don’t have people in your life to whom you feel you can write, go ahead and write the letter to someone you don’t know instead. — Perhaps to an author who may not even be living, whose works you admire. Or to a great inventor or thinker from the past or present. Part of the value of the letter is to gear your thinking towards gratitude. Writing the letter, even if it isn’t sent, would do just that.
The purpose of you letter is very simple; to express love and gratitude. Don’t worry if you’re awkward at writing letters. This isn’t a contest from the head but a gift from the heart. If you can’t think of much to say, start with short little notes like, “Dear, Samantha. I woke up this morning thinking of how lucky I am to have you in my life. Thank you so much for being such a beautiful friend. I am truly blessed, and I wish for you all the joy and happiness that life can bring. Love, Tanya. “
Not only does writing and sending a note focus your attention of what’s right in your life but the person receiving it will, in all likelihood, be extremely touched and grateful. Often, this simple action starts a spiral of loving actions where by the person receive your letter may decide to do the same thing to someone else, or perhaps will act and feel more loving towards others. Write your 1st letter this week. I’m sure you will be happy you reached out.
Thank you so much for taking your time to read this! Lets help bring more light and love into someone’s life !!! There is so much love to go around; we just have to learn to share it.
