Today a new month starts and for many of us is the final countdown to Christmas Celebrations, family dinners, and gatherings with dear friends. At the end of the year, we are entering into a new decade. What a unique milestone!
What I have learned so far is that life is unpredictable beyond imagination. If you want to have peace of mind you must teach yourself how to laugh when everything goes wrong and how to have fun when everything goes great. Joy is something that needs constant practice!
Learn to count your blessings and let yourself feel thankful and grateful, every single day of your life.
December is the last month of the year but the only one with such a great significance for a bunch of reasons. First of all, it has the most important celebrations for more than 70% of the entire population on earth. It’s the only month where people appreciate the value of family bonding. Also, it’s the period where all the big decisions are knocking on our door.
This month is the stepping stone of self-awareness where we are facing the results of the choices we made all the previous months. And only in December, we think of time as something really precious and priceless!
It is good to remember that life does not give us extra time. Life has no rehearsals. Life is now. Here & Now.
We all have the same amount of hours, to be precise, we all have 24 hours per day. It is our responsibility to do the best we can, every day, with every breath, with every action, with every decision, with every gesture and every choice we make.
Make your life journey worthwhile. Listen to your heart and be real. Because at the end of the day it’s always you and yourself facing the consequences of your own choices.
After all, meaningful success is measured by the smiles you created in the lives you touched. Choose kindness, be a happiness ambassador and a joy bringer. Life needs more dreamers, poets, believers and pioneers than businessmen.
Stay wild and true to your heart. December is here to remind us that we are never too old for fairytales. Believe in the magic of love.
The most wonderful time of the year
December may be the last month* of the year but it is my favorite month. At the heart of winter, it is full of celebrations and family gatherings, storytelling moments next to fire and bonding time between people. In other words, we just love December!
Did you know?
December got its name from the Latin word Decem (meaning ten) because it was originally the tenth month of the year in the Roman calendar, which began in March.
The winter days following December were not included as part of any month. Later, the months of January and February were created out of the monthless period and added to the beginning of the calendar, but December retained its name.
*December is the twelfth and last month of the year in the Julian and Gregorian Calendars. It is the seventh and last month to have the length of 31 days.
