Motivation Mondays: The Magic of Christmas

Christmas has always been a big deal in my house. There are extraordinary amounts of food, a continuously flow of people and more noise than anything you’ve heard in your life. The presents were endless, piles bigger than me took over my living room. My brother and I would always argue about who got more presents. Looking back, it now seems silly that we thought the number of gifts we got mattered.

The older I get, the more I have realized the true meaning of Christmas. It’s not about gifts or all the food we cook. It’s about being together with the people who matter most and passing down traditions. I’ve spent my morning listening to stories from my grandmother and cousin while cooking. Hearing those memories is priceless and something I hope to pass down to my kids one day.

Sometimes people’s definition of family changes as they grow older. It is normal for children to start their own families and traditions. Even with all of the things that have changed this year, the magic of Christmas takes over and I can’t feel anything but happy and blessed for the life I have. Everyone should take this time to shut off their computers and phones in order to really spend time with the ones they love.

One of my favorite Christmas songs is My Grown-Up Christmas List. It really depicts how I feel about Christmas this year. My wishes aren’t for presents but for happiness, no drama and the realization in everyone that life isn’t so bad. Wishing all of you a very Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy 2013!
