“Its Christmas Eve! Its the one night of the year when we all act a little nicer, we smile a little easier, we cheer a little more. For a couple of hours out of the whole year, we are the people that we always hoped we would be.”
Christmas Eve is one of my favorite days of the year. I said that to my kids last night and they thought I was crazy for not picking Christmas Day. The reason for my choice is simple, Christmas Eve is filled with the joy and anticipation of Christmas Day with a strong focus on the real reason that I celebrate Christmas. It is good reminder to me that the journey is more important than the goal. Sometimes we are so focused on getting somewhere that we forget to live. We spend our time wishing our lives away, living for some future moment or time. Then when that time arrives it disappears in the blink of an eye.
Revel in today. Enjoy every precious second with friends and family for tomorrow will come and go so quickly. Be fully present today, that is an incredible gift to those that you love…
