Even though the holidays are over, the season of giving goes on. This is a good time to call mom or dad, especially if you haven’t spoken in a while, just to say you love them and appreciate them. This is also a good time to make up with that sibling that you have had differences with. Life is too short to hold grudges. And sit down and talk to your children, give them a hug and tell them you love them. Don’t just talk at them, listen actively to what they say.
It’s also a good time to contact that friend who you may have parted ways with, or to rectify issues with a co-worker to whom you may not have always seen eye to eye. Remember that life is short and friends and family, loved ones and opportunities, are too few and far between to let them slip through your fingers and ignore them until it is too late. Happy New Year everyone!
