The 12 days TO Christmas: Day 9

Days of Xmas Survival Tips Day #9

So Day 9 ties in very nice with yesterday's tip of taking some time out to rest and relax.

Today's tip is to BE HAPPY and enjoy the event...whatever that means to you.

It sounds simple and so flippin' obvious but sometimes we need pulling out of ourselves to remember that we only live once and that what we have in our lives, right now, is more than enough.

This Xmas, now just a few days away, won't happen again.

So rather than fret or stress your way through it, take some time to reflect and be thankful for what you have.

Be happy and thankful for the fact that you have food to eat, delicious food at that. 

Be happy and thankful for the fact that you have a roof over your head to protect you from the elements and keep you and your loved ones warm and cosy.

Be happy and thankful for the opportunity to spend more time than usual with the ones that make you smile.

Be happy and thankful that you have the means to give and receive gifts, no matter how small,,,,it's a luxury millions in this world don't have.

Keeping a wee gratitude log, even if just in your head, over the festive period can serve well to remind you just how incredibly lucky you are to be alive, warm and safe, with a full belly at this time of year.

Be happy with what you already have...it's more than enough, right here, right now
