How to turn the end of the year into a time of joy and gratitude


end of the year

December is a month that brings a lot of emotions to people. Some feel nostalgic when remembering the happy moments they lived in the past, others feel anxious when thinking about the future and the expectations they have for the new year that is approaching.


But these emotions are not always positive or healthy. Nostalgia often turns into sadness and anxiety into stress. The media and commerce also contribute to increasing this pressure, with music, decorations and advertisements that encourage us to consume more and more, without questioning whether we really need or want what we are buying.


Can't we enjoy the end of the year in a different way? Can't we turn this season into an opportunity to celebrate life, be grateful for the blessings we have received, and share love and generosity with others?

I believe so. And so, I want to make a special invitation to you: how about changing the way you view the end of the year and making it a moment of joy and gratitude?


Here are some tips on how to do this:


- Instead of regretting the past, cherish your memories. Tell fun and inspiring stories about your experiences, the people you met, the places you visited, the challenges you overcame. Make people laugh and get emotional with you. Remember that the past is a treasure that no one can take away from you.


- Instead of worrying about the future, trust the present. Don't let uncertainties and doubts paralyze or discourage you. Believe that everything will work out, that you have the ability to make your dreams come true and that the universe is conspiring in your favor. Live each day as if it were your last, taking advantage of every opportunity, every lesson, every surprise.


- Instead of stressing about consumption, be aware and supportive. Don't buy on impulse or out of obligation. Choose gifts that have meaning for you and the recipient. Give preference to artisanal, sustainable and social products, which help preserve the environment and support noble causes. Remember that the best gift is the one that comes from the heart.


- Instead of being saddened by loneliness, celebrate communion. Don't isolate yourself or withdraw into yourself. Seek the company of people who are good for you, who support you, who love you. Express your feelings, hug, kiss, praise, thank. Be kind, polite, cordial to everyone. Don't hold grudges, forgive, ask for forgiveness. Be light in the lives of others.


- Instead of complaining about life, be grateful for your existence. Don't focus on the problems, the difficulties, the pain. Focus on solutions, opportunities, joys. Recognize everything good, beautiful, true in you. Be grateful for the air you breathe, the water you drink, the food you eat. Be grateful for your health, for your family, for your friends. Give thanks for your work, your leisure, your rest. Give thanks for all you are and all you can be.


These are some suggestions on how you can turn the end of the year into a time of joy and gratitude. But you can create your own ways to do this. The important thing is that you feel good about yourself and others, that you are happy and make others happy too.


Remember: the end of the year is a time full of invitations.


But you are the one who chooses how to accept them.
