Christmas is an opportunity for us to reflect on what is important. Chasing after ‘stuff’ all year long can leave us feeling empty and unfulfilled. In search of elusive happiness, we begin the next year running again, looking for that one thing that will truly make us happy.
I don’t know why it is so hard for us to find happiness within the simple things in life – a baby’s laugh; a dog’s joy; a walk in nature; or the comfort of a hug. I think when we stop running, we have a moment to see what is right before us – our family and friends. Maybe this is what “heaven on earth” really means.
I wish you and yours, love; it is all that really matters.
