Spirit Of The Season

Spirit Of The Season

‘Tis that time of year where people hustle around trying to find the perfect gift for their loved ones. This season has become so materialistic and commercial that most people forget what the true meaning is, and no I’m not just referring to the most common belief that people celebrate known as the birth of Jesus Christ. I am talking about the spirit of giving. Much like the belief of Santa Claus, I look at this season as a time to help others. However, we don’t need just one day a year to give to others. We should do it everyday. Human nature tells us we are all here to get what we can and screw everyone else. Life is about more than just being rich and successful. When we die we can’t take our possessions with us. Life, instead, is about helping mankind and making a difference, no matter how small. I hate watching all these people running around trying to buy and obtain all the new age in stylish, high tech crap. It’s a waste of time and money and will only go out of style and become obsolete. But, kindness will never go out of style. It’s one thing that, no matter how much the world changes, will always be something that never changes. People have become so greedy and selfish that they can’t see what’s in front of them. Everyone needs to take a step back and re-analyze what’s important. Your presence is the greatest gift you can give. Time is more important than things, so pay attention to what is going on around you.
