Give A Priceless Gift This Year

If you are one of those people who are watching the days quickly fly by, approaching the holiday season with dread, avoiding holiday parties, procrastinating on doing any holiday shopping and feeling a growing fear, anxiety or resentment for having to spend money on people you rarely see and don’t really care much about, I hope that you will read this post and gain a new and different perspective on the holiday season and on the people in your personal and professional lives and that you will embrace the holiday season, accept every invitation, show up at every party, buy what you can afford or just show up and offer your best wishes.

If you are one of those people who finished your shopping on Black Friday, Cyber Monday or having been shopping throughout the year and found the perfect gift for every individual on your list and love every bright and shining moment of this holiday season, I hope that you will read this post and recognize that even though you have bought tangible gifts, there are many more that you can give this holiday season.

Even though both Hanukah and Christmas are still a few weeks away, I have already received many priceless gifts. In a previous post, I described how my partner and I have a project this month to make it a December to Remember. Every day we have done something special for ourselves and for others. It is only the sixth day of December and it is already a December to Remember. While most of the gifts we have given to others, to each other or to ourselves have been what would be called tangible gifts, yesterday was the day that I received two priceless gifts. I had life-changing conversations with two long-time friends and each had many priceless gifts that they gave me during these conversations. They taught me the value of priceless gifts like: joy, love, time, patience, gratitude, courage, strength, resilience, presence, attention, kindness, generosity, thoughtfulness, friendship and memories. So if you have not done your shopping and are unsure of what to buy perhaps one of these priceless gifts is what you really need to give this year. If you have already bought all of your gifts, be sure to include some of these priceless gifts among the ones that are wrapped and ready for giving.
