[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] Another perspective
"It is not fair to ask of others what you are not willing to do yourself."
I haven't done the "Christmas thing" in ages! And thinking about it
yesterday, usually by choice! And what I mean by the "Christmas thing" is
the shopping, painting the house, changing the curtains. I have been either
working or on holiday for Christmas for as long as I could remember.
I was reminded why yesterday, I decided to go to the mall. The traffic was
out of this world! then to get a parking spot was also off another planet,
I also wanted to go to a Christmas market, I finally got there and they
were charging you to go in and shop! I jumped in the car and thought" yea
this is why I run from this"
And just like that my perception changed..... no, not just like that LOL! I
was driving in the traffic and saw some children by the road standing. As I
passed them, I saw three trucks with people on them all dressed in red and
with Santa Claus hats, one truck was filled with gifts, the other truck was
filled with drinks and food and the last truck was blaring out music!
The people in the Santa hats were distributing the food and gifts to the
children on the side of the road!! I literally stopped the car! No joke, I
stopped the car to watch what was happening. The faces of the children, the
faces of the Santa hat people! absolutely priceless. I smiled all
afternoon, the traffic had a different meaning and I was reminded that
there is more than a single story!
It made me think, yea there is indeed another part of the "Christmas thing"
and I get to choose which one I want to do!
