Make This A December To Remember

Make this a December to remember by doing at least one special thing each day in December for yourself, for your family and friends, for your clients/customers, for your colleagues and for a stranger be they as fortunate or less fortunate than you.

Use your electronic or hard copy calendar and record one special thing that you are going to do each day. Maybe you want to give yourself a special gift of something that you would never dare to buy for yourself. Perhaps you want to surprise a family member or friend by treating them to a meal at their favourite restaurant. Why not start off your workday in a special way by paying for the person behind you in the coffee line. If you are baking holiday goodies, delight your colleagues by bringing in a generous sampling of these yummy treats. How about making your clients/customers happy and eager to do business with you next year? Make an appointment to visit them and bring a gift of something you know that they would really appreciate. While you are shopping on-line or in the stores, remember to make a donation to one or more worthy causes or purchase one or many toys or food items and donate them to one or many of the toy or food campaigns that need your support. Plan to make the most of the abundance of plays, concerts, light and window displays, tree and candle lightings and galleries and museums to experience this month. Be sure to be available to offer help, support and encouragement to the people in your life who ask for it and the people you know who need it but are afraid or reluctant to ask for it. When you see a stranger who seems lost or confused, stop and ask if you can be of any assistance. Volunteer to help make this a December to remember for someone who is less fortunate than you.

We began to celebrate our December to remember yesterday. While walking quickly on a busy street to a business appointment, I saw a visually impaired man who was walking straight into a bus shelter. I asked him where he wanted to go and gently took his arm and walked him slowly to his destination. I went to the grocery store where a knowledgeable butcher helped me choose a beautiful piece of beef at a bargain price for a dinner party for my partner’s parents tomorrow night. The delight on my partner’s face when he saw the quality of the meat showed that this month had already gotten off to a great start. To my delight, he surprised me by treating me to dinner. It’s only been one day and already it has been a December to remember.

How are you going to make this a December to remember?
