12 Tips for Christmas
Twas the night before Christmas when all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse. - By Clement C. Moore I love this book!
When our children were young we read it hundreds if not thousands of times during Christmas. Now we read it to our grandkids with the same enthusiasm!
We also loved the 12 Days of Christmas song and often came up with our own verses! I hope you too have special memories to reflect on. According to Google, The Twelve Days of Christmas was a song written during the Puritan Movement in England, when, during the years 1558-1829, Catholics were not allowed to practice their faith. The song actually has two meanings, the literal and the subtle translation that only the Catholics knew. I also learned that the Twelve Days of Christmas began on December 25th and ends January 5th.
I want to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
12 Tips for your 12 days of Christmas
The 1st day of Christmas is Jesus Christs birth. Reflect on the story.
Make the 2nd day of Christmas a day to reflect on what you appreciate.
Take time on the 3rd day of Christmas to be still and relax.
On the 4th day of Christmas, leave your phone in your purse or car. Interact with people!
Smile the 5th day of Christmas. Share the joy of the season!
Set goals on the 6th day of Christmas. Commit to going to the gym for months not days.
Treat yourself on the 7th day of Christmas. Maybe it's time for new glasses. Contact Kathy for an eye frame consultation or do her virtual eye frame consult.
Do something new on the 8th day of Christmas. I highly recommend joining Toastmasters. It is a great way to grow personally.
The 9th day of Christmas is an opportunity for self-reflection. What are your positive character traits? What things do you need to polish?
On the 10th day of Christmas ask yourself word you'd want others to say about you when you walk into the room.
Get outside on the 11th day of Christmas! Go for a hike and enjoy your surroundings.
Love one another, the 12th day of Christmas. Let your loved one know how important he/she is to you, and no matter what, make every day count! Be intentional with the time you spend together and develop a good relationship.
Yours in style, Kathy Sazama
Merry Christmas and Happy 2018!
