Top 10 Christmas Quotes to Lighten Up Your Day

Top 10 Christmas Quotes to Lighten Up Your Day

What is Christmas actually? Is it just about the grand Christmas presents that everybody waits for throughout the year or is it about the wonderfully lit up homes and finely decked up Christmas trees? What about the special Christmas deals and offers and of course the Christmas party celebration with family & friends over fun & frolic? Well, Christmas is about all such things and much more. Christmas means homecoming to family and friends.

It means getting an inch closer to near and dear ones to show that you love them, to show that you care for them. Christmas also means reaching out to help people, taking stands as savior where needed and being abundant in mercy – just like Jesus did. In simple words, Christmas implies filling up the life with little joys and putting an effort to make the world & society around a better place to live in.

There are several Christmas quotes that will help you to have a better view on the actual spirit of Christmas.

    It’s a state of mind

    Mary Chase & Calvin Coolidge were right when they said Christmas is a “state of mind”. Yes, the spirit of Christmas is not just confined to one single date- in fact, if you understand the true value or meaning of Christmas, you will be able to enjoy the feel anyday & anytime.

    The true meaning of Christmas lies in assuring peace and goodwill, the very reason for which God sent his one and only son to the land of sufferings to show us the light of a better world. So, if we can have this in us to stop fighting and practice goodwill, every day would be as grand as a Christmas celebration.

    Christmas is all about love and spreading love

    It was God’s love for the mankind that made him send his beloved Son to the world of sufferings. Thus, Christmas means extending our helping hand to the people we love, it means doing a “little something extra” for those we care about.

    Dale Evans had rightly said that Christmas signifies “love in action” and whenever we do something good for people, whenever we love them or care for them, it’s Christmas. By sending his own son to us, God wanted us to understand that when it comes to greater good, we should always come forward with whatever we have- even if it means sacrificing something or somebody who is the dearest to us.

    It’s a feeling

    Yes, Christmas is a feeling which comes spontaneously when someone is willing to bring little joys in others’ lives to make the world around a better place to live in . It’s not something which is dependent on just Christmas trees or Christmas discounts or lit-up homes in December. As Roy Smith had said- a person who doesn’t have the spirit of Christmas in his heart, won’t ever find it under a mere tree.

    So, enjoy a merry Christmas and make sure to make it merrier for all those around you.

    6 Signs It’s Time to Change Your Life

    6 Signs It’s Time to Change Your Life

    Is it time to make some changes in your life? It just might be. Life is too short to not live it to the fullest.

    Here are some signs it’s time to change your life.

    1. Every week, you cannot wait for Friday.

      Fridays are fun, but one thing I’ve discovered in my quest to find and do work I absolutely love is that almost every day can be really fun. If you’re saving all your living for the weekends, it’s time to truly think about your lifestyle and consider making some changes. Don’t get me wrong; it’s great to have plans you look forward to on the weekends, but what if you could have that excited Friday feeling most, if not all, days of the week? It takes a lot of self-discovery and work, but it’s truly possible to live a life you love—even on Mondays.

      2. You live for your vacations.

      Vacations are great, but what’s even better is building a life you don’t need to take a vacation from. As Seth Godin said, “Instead of wondering when your next vacation is, maybe you should set up a life you don’t need to escape from.” Vacations are fun and exciting, but even better is building a life where you have the potential to do what lights you up many weeks of the year, not just your two allotted vacation weeks.

      3. When you stop and think about it, you’re really not focusing your life on your priorities.

      Write down your 3 top priorities. Then write down the 3 things you focus most of your life on. Are you spending your time living your top priorities? Consistently spending time doing what matters most to you is one of the keys to feeling fulfilled in your life. If you’re not focusing your life on what’s important to you, it’s time to make some changes.

      4. You have no idea what lights you up, and you don’t have the space in your life to discover it.

      If you haven’t found your passion in your current life, you’re not going to find it if you continue to do your same routine, over and over, year after year. In order to discover what lights you up, start by creating the space in your life to seek it. Give yourself time to figure out who you are, what your strengths are, and what picques your interest. Experiment with learning new things, spending time with inspiring people, and doing more of what excites you and less of the things that suck your energy.

      5. You’re frequently jealous.

      If you find yourself frequently feeling jealous of someone, there are 3 changes to consider making:

      1. Make a point to focus on your path instead of his or her journey. Sometimes this involves taking a break from social media.
      2. Get inspired from the person you’re jealous of, and work toward a similar goal in your life.
      3. Decide what the other person has is not something you are willing to put in the effort to achieve, so you’ll cheer him or her on but choose to not be jealous.

      When you are feeling jealous, consider why you want what the other person has, and what your motives are. Living a life on your terms, focused on your priorities, passions, and strengths, will provide you with much more fulfillment than trying to be somebody else.

      6. You can’t remember the last time you stepped out of your comfort zone.

      According to Neale Donald Walsch, “Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.” Your life can become even more amazing if you stretch beyond your comfort zone. If you’re not sure where to start, try the tips in this article about small ways to step out of your comfort zone.

      Life is too short to spend your years not living to your full potential. If you decide you’re ready to change your life, I encourage you to start taking small action steps toward the life you want to live. Keep moving forward.
