Chronic Scrooge

 
 
I've noticed over the years that more and more people around me seem to have turned into the little versions of Charles' Dickens famous character in his well known A Christmas Carol. As the years have passed we have become more and more oriented towards materialistic things. Christmas has slowly been losing its meaning about giving and unity. It has now become a season of focusing on ourselves and our own problems and misfortunes. We think about how we cannot afford to buy all the things we'd like to give, how we are alone, how we dont have a family, how we are not where we wish we were, how we want this, how we want to go there...

We need to remember that the act of giving is as simple as giving a hug, a smile, a squeeze of the hand. We do not need to have the money to be able to buy a new touch pad, or a large flat screen tv to have a joyful Christmas. 

In the root of the holiday we are celebrating the birth of a savior. The birth of a person that was humble, giving and merciful. 

So if you are feeling down, like Mr. Scrooge, this holiday season then look around you and find all the opportunities that are in your community to help and be united. Mr. Scrooge was able to find the joy inside of himself only when he was able to realize the influence he had on the world and how he could make that to be a positive influence. 

Be joyful this Christmas Season, find the blessings in your life and look for opportunities to bless the lives of others. 

"Christmas, my child, is love in action. Every time we love, every time we give, its Christmas."
-Dale Evans

With much love and Merry Christmas wishes,
