That time of year has come, when the leaves turn brown and the sky clouds up and rain falls… well, in places other than California of course, and the weather cools down and for a second we can all sit by the fire and read a good book or watch the hundreds of Hallmark movies the season brings. We can’t forget a good drink, too. Some hot cocoa perhaps, or the famous Peppermint Mocha or Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks. The food isn’t all too shabby either, because fall means the holidays and the holidays mean turkey galore and fancy desserts.
But it’s important to remember that regardless of what society has deemed popular during this time of year, we can’t forget what really matters. Maintaining those relationships and friendships with family and friends. Remembering that in addition to that materialistic side these holidays bring, it’s also about sharing genuine love and comfort. Reach out to those you don’t normally talk to and make a plan; invite them to dinner where you can share all the yummy food. Don’t let life’s fast pace allow you to forget to talk to those who aren’t constantly by your side. We will never get back the the time we live and it’s important to live in the present and enjoy the little things that life has to offer.
