The holiday season is on its way and I can almost hear the Christmas music playing in the stores. Christmas is bittersweet for me and has been for a very long time. I enjoy all of the hustle and bustle leading up to Christmas Day probably more than the average person but I dread Christmas Day because I’m always left feeling lonely in an empty house. A friend once suggested that I do a charitable act on Christmas Day so for the last couple weeks I’ve been brainstorming what I should commit myself to doing this year.
While recently searching for my charitable Christmas act I stumbled on a way to help others. It was a way for me to give back and help others by listening and as a result allow me to strengthen my skills at being caring and compassionate.
I haven’t yet figured out what I will be doing on Christmas Day but in the meantime I found a way to give something back all the other days and that makes me feel really good!
