As the Christmas season, has drawn to a close, how many of us remembered “the true gift of giving”? How many of us feel the need to go overboard spending on things to make others feel more appreciated while feeling obligated to give more just to feel self-important without the stress from others? It happens to so many of us who, in turn, forget the true meaning of the holiday spirit. Remember, although it is easier said than done for many of us whom may go through this very experience every year, “giving from the heart” without feeling beaten down that “I should have done more mentality”, should never cross your mind once you express to the other person how much you care.
Yes, money does drive many people but always be yourself. Give what you can from the heart but have that open communication to others that you will give what you want to give with gratitude without going overboard. Happy New Year!
