What’s your favorite thing about the holidays? Maybe it’s family, tradition, generosity, or even nostalgia.
Your answer is a window into your values. That’s what makes the holidays so special—they’re opportunities to reconnect with what’s important to you.
But here’s the truth—that connection isn’t reserved for the holidays. In fact, it can be yours year-round.
This holiday season, make note when you sense that connection. Look for it while you’re celebrating holiday traditions with your family. Or notice someone’s expression when they open that gift, the one they’ve wanted for years. Or any child’s face when they’re mesmerized by the lights in the neighborhood.
Next, strategize about how you can have more of what you value in life. Maybe you need an opportunity that gives you more time with your family. Maybe you need an income boost to afford greater generosity. It’s likely that you’ll need to make financial moves in addition to personal moves.
Finally, follow through. That might involve taking massive leaps forward. It may involve a small, unassuming step. Whatever it is, start working towards that sense of connection.
So here’s wishing you a holiday full of what matters most. And may you have the courage to chase those things in the upcoming year.
