It’s so easy to get caught up with the run-away Christmas train. Buy this, get me that, spruce up, entertain, clean up, then bang, back to work. Don’t get me wrong, I have an above-average obsession with Christmas. As I write this my neighbours on each side are cringing at the twinkling eye-sore we have flashing in our front yard, this year the Mrs added Christmas songs too.
But anyway – so it’s too easy to get caught up in a Christmas whirl-wind and wake up with a January regret that maybe you didn’t focus on the right things over the time with those you care about. I read a great blog earlier this week on a similar line of argument – Focus on giving Christmas Presence rather than the Presents. Any parent knows there is nothing little kids really crave more than our real, undivided attention.
So this weeks quote is all about remembering that if you stop and ask yourself, you probably want to get a lot more from these next few weeks that a stack of boxes you won’t care about in a few months. And who better to remind us than the Grinch himself!
