Christmas is celebrated because of the birth of a child, and still today the Christmas and holiday time holds a child-like excitement and amazement that is connected through all its festivities; the decorations, lights, opening of presents and Father Christmas all lend to its spirit.
But Christmas is not just for children.
Christmas is for grown-up people too!
So let’s, as grown-ups, ‘let go’ and allow ourselves to have fun and be fun this Christmas.A proverb says, “A cheerful heart brings a smile to your face; a sad heart makes it hard to get through the day.”
As adults we have enough responsibility in our lives with mortgages, work and people – so let’s stop being so proper and sensible all the time, let the hair down (so to speak), and allow some wonder, excitement and laughter to enter your days this Christmas and holiday season.
I was bike riding this morning, and coming the opposite way was a professional rider who had antlers coming out of his helmet – he made me smile. That’s what I mean – let go. Perhaps do something silly – not irresponsible, just impractical, frivolous and trivial to keep a light air and spirit about you – otherwise we end up taking ourselves way too seriously.
If you are finding it hard to laugh because you are facing some big issues, then find someone or a group of people, who can help you smile and laugh. Being able to have a bit of a laugh, at yourself or the situation, just may help to bring some needed perspective.
So, grown-ups – remember Christmas is not just for children.
Let go, laugh and have some fun.
