For many of us, the holidays are a time of joy, stirring up memories of celebrating with dear friends and family while sipping hot drinks and eating delicious food. Unfortunately, this is not the case for everyone and in this contentious time, many may be feeling extra alone. In this season focused on gratitude and love, it is worth taking the extra step to bring joy into someone’s life, especially if they are struggling.
Now that the wrapping paper’s all swept away, it’s time to start thinking about the year ahead. The custom of starting the New Year with a resolution has good intentions behind it. With a little self-reflection, we all see areas of our life that we’d like to improve and bad habits that we’d like to shake. But for most, our resolutions don’t get very far as the force of habit take hold again. This year, instead of making the same old list of quit-this, lose-that, self-improvement resolutions, resolve to be the change you want to see in the world.
