The best gift you will give and receive this holiday season won’t come wrapped in a box. It won’t be something you got from a store or purchased online. It won’t have a bow or a cute little ribbon.
The best gift you will give and receive this holiday season is TIME.
As every parent frantically searches for that perfect give for their child (as we do too)…the best gift will actually end up being the time spent when our full attention is on each other.
As every spouse or significant other racks their brain for that perfect thoughtful gift for their loved one (as I do too)…the best gift will actually be moments of shared experience, of intimate discussion, and time where love and affection are shared.
As every company or organization hopefully seeks to compensate their teams and employees in ways that express their gratitude for those they work with every day…the best gift will actually be the time they give for their people to step back and celebrate life.
This holiday season I feel a great sense of gratitude for all of you and the opportunity to share my work in ways that impact people. My hope for you (and myself too) this holiday season is that you are able to intentionally share the gift of time with those you love.
Spend it wisely, hilariously, and lovingly.
Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays!
