Dear Santa...

Fri Nov 28, 2014, 9:56 AM
As you know, it's been a rough year. I've learned to do without a lot of things - people, environments, and objects included. This year has definitely felt like I had to give up a lot. And you know what, I'm very grateful for it because I feel like it's made me stronger and I'm confident that I have the strength to do anything and handle whatever comes my way. Therefore, I do not want anything for myself for Christmas (other than maybe some quality time with my family). What I would like is for whoever reads this wish list to spoil themselves instead of me.


I would like....

:bulletwhite: You to set aside some quality time with your loved ones - no phone, no laptop, no internet :bulletwhite: 
Ask them about their day, what's been going on in their lives, how they are, play a game, make cookies together etc.

:bulletwhite: Do something nice for a stranger :bulletwhite: 
Open the door, return lost money, pay for their coffee, say hello, stop to give help.

:bulletwhite: Tell people how much they mean to you :bulletwhite: 
Really, you never know when will be the last time.

:bulletwhite: Say out loud to yourself what you like...about you :bulletwhite: 
You know all of us don't do that nearly enough, we all deserve credit because we're pretty awesome.

:bulletwhite: Challenge yourself! Do something out of the norm :bulletwhite: 
Could be with art, exercise, socializing with people, etc.

:bulletwhite: Stop, and spoil yourself :bulletwhite: 
I know you're busy doing everything you can for everyone else, but don't forget about yourself!

And some of my personal favourites:

:bulletwhite: Go for a drive and look at the Christmas lights :bulletwhite: 

:bulletwhite: Bake some cookies, or a pie, or something completely from scratch :bulletwhite: 
:bulletwhite: Sit down with a cup of hot cider and read a book in silence :bulletwhite: 

:bulletwhite: Go for a walk and surround yourself with nature :bulletwhite: 
(please be safe though!) 

:bulletwhite: Do an activity normally reserved for kids :bulletwhite: 
(who says you can't build a snowman or ride a carousal or take your picture with Santa!)


And there we have it, that is my wish list. I want everyone to have as happy and stress-free holiday as they can, full of smiles and genuine warm feelings without having to break the bank or bend over backwards. Whatever your beliefs are, whatever holidays you observe, I hope you all have a wonderful winter (or summer), stay safe and happy!

Best wishes,
Stefa (aka Kiwi)
