Sam is 8 years old.
She loves everything about Christmas: the magic, Santa Claus, the decorations, the GIFTS!... She particularly loves to send Christmas cards. She creates them herself, a different one for each of her family members (mom, dad, brother, then both grandmothers and grandfathers). That’s only five cards.
In it, she always writes: “Merry Christmas and Happy New Year”, and then she chooses a few words that will be her wishes to them for the coming year. That’s the hard bit. She doesn’t know which wish to choose, which ones would be the most important, the most significant, the most appropriate. She noticed that her grandparents always write: “Health, happiness and prosperity”. She likes that but doesn’t fully comprehend the importance of those words. She even wonders if they are not a bit boring and cliché. Still, as she appreciates that her grandparents know something she doesn’t, she too chooses to wish all her family “Health, happiness and prosperity” for the coming year.
Sam is 48 years old.
She loves Christmas, mostly because it’s a period of the year where work slows down a bit and she has more time to spend with people she loves. She still enjoys sending Christmas cards. She creates them herself, a different one each year but the same for everybody, which she gives to her family members (husband, two daughters, mom, brother and his family). That’s only five cards.
In it, she always writes: “Merry Christmas and Happy New Year”, and then she chooses a few words that will be her wishes for them for the coming year. That’s the easy bit. She knows which wish to choose, which ones will be the most important, the most significant, the most appropriate. She always writes: “Health, happiness and prosperity”. She fully comprehends the importance of those words. Life taught her that those three little words are the best thing you can wish to anyone.
What about you? What do you wish your loved ones for the coming year?
Merry Christmas and a happy New Year 2019.
May it be filled with health, happiness and prosperity

It’s that time of year again...
The Holiday season...
It’s just around the corner.
Are you ready?
On top of all the things you have to do, the preparations, the gifts, the traveling, on top of all the people, planning you have to think about, will you promise me something?
Will you promise me to take time for yourself?
But I mean, SERIOUSLY?
Will you think of something that you really want to do (including doing nothing!), plan it, and do it?
No excuses. No I’ll do it later.
Because you know... if you do something for yourself that makes you feel good, then you will bring this good feeling with you and people around you will feel it too. It’s like propagating a “good vibe” virus...
So will you do it?
