I was thinking about how nice this time of year is (parking and over-spending aside!) What with the twinkly lights, the music, oh and the Bailey’s coffee. Very nice. 😉
And yes, it gets stupidly busy and yes, it’s a bit stressful.
But people seem, I dunno, a little bit extra kind and tolerant? It’s fab!
So then I got to thinking (oooh, just a little bit more.) You know that song … I wish it could be Christmas every day? Well I don’t actually wish it could be Christmas, like, every single day, not in the way the song means … presents, fairy lights, excess food … but you know what would be really cool?
What if the extra kindness and tolerance lasted longer than the next month or so?
(And yes, I’m well aware that I won’t be the first person to wish such lofty ideals out loud. But hey, a girl’s gotta dream eh?)
“Be the change you want to see in the world.” Mahatma Gandhi.
So yes, it’s a lofty big dream but if I keep being extra sweet and kind and lovely and tolerant, and you do the same, and it rubs off on someone else.
And then … before we know it, it could be infectious!
What do you think? You game?
