Should I give you one? 

Hi Aspirers! 

‘Tis the season of being generous and gift giving is one act of being generous. Who doesn’t love receiving gifts but have you ever been in a situation when someone gave you a gift and you wonder should you buy them one? Well I have. I believe it all depends on you. The holidays are the days to give not just to receive. If you are the type of person to give just to receive you’re missing the whole point of the holidays. At the end of the year it doesn’t mean a big celebration for everyone. For some it could mean penny pinching to a least have enough money to give gifts. People are spending their last few dollars to see a smile on their child’s face on Christmas morning, or to have food on the table. 

If someone surprises you with a gift most likely they gave you a gift just because they wanted to not because they had to. A gift doesn’t have to be wrapped up pretty with a bow. A gift could be kind words or kind actions. When we think about what our family and friends gave us through the years, material things are the last things we talk about because we are so busy talking and laughing about the memories. 

So when someone hands you a gift act surprised and if you truly want to give them a gift, give because you want to not because you feel obligated. Do it as act of kindness from your heart. If you don’t it’s not the end of the world because those people that actually took time to give you a gifts they just wanted to.

What do I miss most? 

Hi Aspirers! 

I’m the youngest of my siblings. My sister is 15 years older and my brother is 12 years older than me. So once I turned 6 I was the only child in the house and anything before than I can’t really remember. To answer the question of what I miss most is getting a chance to know how Christmas would of been before my siblings moved out. 

I grew up as an only child basically but my siblings did as much as they could but the bond between close age siblings to far in age siblings are different. I don’t regret my memories because those are my memories to remember the great times but sometimes I do wonder how was it before I became the “only child”. 

What do you miss from the holidays? Comment down below.
