Maybe today is the day to... (Christmas edition)
understand that when you're a grown-up, Christmas can be a decision. When you were a kid, others made it happen for you (if you were lucky) and the world seemed special for a while, because of Christmas tree, decorations, gingerbread cookies and gifts, but most of all, because somebody made all these things happen.
As grown-ups we can feel nostalgic about that time, because nothing seems to happen on its own anymore and usually we're the ones making it happen. Gifts have to be bought, cookies made and homes decorated. The trick is that these activities can actually be quite enjoyable, but you have to push yourself to make that first step, as with other things in life, it won't just happen on its own. But once you start, you will be surprised how much you enjoy them and Christmastime might just become the most magical time of the year for you too.
