'Tis the season ... for Cheer Gear
It's that time again - time to feel the sheer joy of giving to your loved ones!
Ok, look ... let's be honest. Many of us don't think of this season as a season of joy in giving ... that is to say, a season of giving so that *we* can feel filled with bliss because we've brought joy to someone else. Many of us see this season as one in which we are apathetically obligated to hand out gifts to loved ones who are so tapped out (mentally, physically and perhaps financially) that the only joy they can muster is a feigned smile and a half-hearted "wow... thanks".
Joy: a source or cause of keen pleasure or delight; something or someone greatly valued or appreciated ... merriment, gladness, jocundity, pleasure.
I challenge you this season to change the way you think: focus on the joy of giving - not just gifts but, giving of your time and your energy.
Although who am I kidding, I am quite partial to the whole gift-giving-idea. And because I am an ardent supporter of gift giving, I'm going to be bringing you my favorite CDs, DVDs, books, gadgets, thingamajigs and what-nots to help you with your to-buy list. Oprah may have her "Favorite Things" - but Ladies and Gents, I have my Cheer Gear ... you know what I mean - the stuff that brings joy and a feeling of all-around good cheer.
Stay tuned this coming Friday for the first list ... I, for one, can't wait!
