Subject: 7 Things to remember this holiday season

1. Eating healthy matters today (don’t wait until January 1 to start believing your mirror).
2. You need time for yourself (make sure you’re getting some time to close the year as you’d like).
3. Honesty can be the best present of all (if it’s delivered for the right reasons).
4. Joy comes from within (don’t expect others to work toward your happiness).
5. Memories have a shelf life (keep working to make great new memories for your loved ones to treasure).
6. Not everybody celebrates holidays as you’d prefer (especially when religion comes into play, it’s good to remember we all have different takes and that’s okay).
7. Unprovoked generosity is terrific fun (give it a try, you’ll get a kick out of random kindness without all the planning we usually load up with).

What do you often forget that you hope to remember this holiday season?

I wish people would remember the wage slaves that give up OUR holidays, so you can make a last minute run to the store/buy gas/etc. I've had to work Thanksgiving the last four years. I was completely thrown off work Wed. by a customer randomly wishing me Happy Holidays, in a polite way, without asking me for anything in return.

In a similar vein, I'd like to remember that the customers who are angry and rude with me are often just venting their anger at something else on me, and to let it roll off my back. In other words, everyone should remember this should be a happy time of year, and to not let little things stress them out.
