The holiday season is getting underway big time. We’ve survived Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday and the first day of December is tomorrow. That means Christmas and other holiday decorations go up. That means shopping for presents. That means stress and worry and whether the budget will stretch far enough, whether that must have on our loved ones’ lists can be found, bought, and stashed beneath the tree. It’s like running on a hamster wheel carpeted with Christmas cactus.
Once upon a time, we learned what the Universe is talking about in today’s thought:
Whatever it is you want, however you want to have it, no matter why you want to have it, Silver, you can have it faster if you can first be happy without it.

Desire and happiness, Silver, need not be mutually exclusive; they actually work best together.
This Christmas, we’re concentrating on gifts of the heart. We’re working on creating smiles and happiness rather than giving material goods that get used up. Memories last so much longer than things that need batteries. Because I can be happy without all the fancy trimmings as long as I have the love of my family the the friendship of people I care about.
