As the year takes its solemn bow off the stage of life, we realise that this whole year from one project to another, we have rarely had time for ourselves or so we think, and so we make a resolution to spend this last six days focusing on our needs, for the purpose of refreshment we begin the journey of self-aggrandisement. But let’s look at this from a different vantage point, the projects, the jobs, the service you had this year which you have complained off, that it wasn’t for you wasn’t it really? By those activities you engaged in were you not able to further yourselves in a certain way? No matter how difficult, boring and frustrating some of those activities during the year had been it still gave your personal cause some form off progress. And this happened last year also; Progress.

So if we agree to disagree on the first point, it’s clear that this year you have only lived for yourself. This last days wouldn’t be too much to live for somebody other than yourselves, not because you want their vote of confidence or just their vote, their compliment, their number, their titles, their body, their time, their money, or for them to join your religion. Just because they are human beings and you know your very existence can be tied indirectly to that person even if it’s a complete stranger. And in the words of Charles Dickens “no one is useless in this world who lightens the burden of another”

So take a moment and reflect. There is always something you can do, from a simple smile to hosting a bunch of homeless guys for a Christmas lunch, there is always something you can do as correctly put by John Holmes “there is no exercise better for the heart than reaching down and lifting people up” and also echoed by Maya Angelou “when we give cheerfully and accept gratefully, everyone is blessed” you can’t actually love or help without giving and as rightly said by Anne Frank “no one has ever become poor by giving”  So instead of thinking hard and long on what you want for Christmas, maybe you should start asking, what can I give? Through that you could discover much more than what you want. I have discovered mine what I want for Christmas is You; the selfless YOU.
Merry Christmas to you… in Advance.

By the way I am just a Bystander.
