Another year, another Christmas blog, it couldn’t be otherwise, cause it’s me, the Elf adoring this holiday. Yet, I still hate starting the blogs, because there are so many things I want to write, and I can’t decide how to start. Okay, let’s start with a little beautiful description. Christmas. Indeed the most wonderful time of the year. I love every single thing about it, the lights, festive decorations, songs, movies, food ofc, etc. But most of all I adore the feeling of magic and miracle. Yes, a 20 year old person still believes in magic, and seeks for miracles in life. And I couldn’t be more proud of that. Though the concept of miracle is a little misunderstood. Even the true skeptics still wait for some miracles. They want a miracle to happen and change their lives for the best. They think that this “miracle thing” will be a wave of a magic wand, and then they will live happily ever after. Nope, my dears, life doesn’t work like that. You don’t wait for miracles to happen, you create those miracles yourself. You make your every single day be great by changing your lifestyle, worldview and attitude. This changes everything. Everyone has difficulties in their lives. Everyone has problems. Even the Elves like me. But these problems or complications must not prevent you from being happy, or believing, cause both these things come from within, and are connected with nothing but your way of thinking and appreciation of everything. I talk so much about things like this, that I’m not even sure whether I already wrote this or not. Anyway, it will never be much to write or talk about, because people always need to be reminded of that.
What was the blog initially about? Yeah right, Christmas. One good advice from me. If you want to cheer yourself up and feel the spirit and magic of Christmas, just watch some old good movies. Or listen to old songs, by Frank Sinatra, the genius of Christmas in my opinion. I don’t know why this time of the year makes me feel and appreciated the oldness more than ever. Maybe its the effect of all these movies and books and songs. Maybe because it’s the warmest holiday season, and unfortunately you can’t feel the same warmth now, as it was years ago. The whole idea of Christmas is spoiled, well at least in my country. Now it’s the holiday of credits for the “greatest table”, food and maybe presents. But it’s not what Christmas is about. It’s about love, and warmness and happiness and hope for everything good. It’s about spending so much time with your closest ones as you can. It’s decorating trees, getting into the spirit, having little fresh walks in the decorated city, maybe trying to find the perfect gift for your friends and family, and getting excited from the thought of that one, even small perfect present that you’ve found. It’s about magic and miracles. And by the way, by saying magic and miracles, I mean all the things written above, because they truly are the magic moments of our lives. That’s what I want to say. Just try to remember what Christmas is really about. Watching the old films will help you with that. It’s not about having everything and being the best, it’s about spreading love, and making everything warm and cozy, and of course never loosing your hope and belief of life. Be the miracle of your lives, do good for yourselves and your closest ones. Give and share kindness. Remember, no one canceled the law of boomerang. Goodness will bring more goodness. Don’t be assholes and expect sth good to happen to you, it never will. Think about the bad things you do, the nasty things you say, the bad attitude towards other people, and you still wonder why bad things happen to you? Just be good, and appreciate everything you have. And remember, Santa’s watching you, don’t make him judge you. “You better watch out, you better not cry, you better not pout, I’m telling you why. Santa Claus is coming to town. He knows if you’ve been bad or good, so be good for goodness sake”. And our Santa is the same effect of boomerang. 🎅🏻
p.s. I swear, when I started to write the lyrics of the song (shame on you if you don’t know which song was this), it started to play in my headphones 😂
