FAST FORWARD CHRISTMAS
I swear, it was just last week when I put away the gift cards, the wine bags, the Christmas cards, and the gift baskets.
But, here we go again. In fact, even Simbang Gabi just came oh so suddenly. Now, we not only speed up time. We also speed up all the Christmas activities, too.
But to be a little contrarian, it’s also time for reflection on how the year was:
- How did we fare in as far as helping the environment is concerned?
- How did we fare in helping more people to make their lives better as we also live better lives?
- What changes have we made in our lifestyle to be a better healthier person?
- What have we done for others so they can also be better?
And for the rest of the year, let us do our religious obligations and our family traditions while we improve our own self-assessment and self-actualization.
There is still time, a good two weeks before we turn another leaf.
Rewind and playback. Play and make it better before we go fast forward.
So, slow down a bit, reflect and maybe next year may be a more expected fast Christmas unlike this one.
