Dr. Romance Happiness Tip: Give Yourself a Gift
Want to give yourself a holiday gift that'll last a lifetime? Give yourself the gift of happiness.

As you look back on your life, you are likely to feel best about the good things you did for others and the positive contributions you have made to your friends and family. Perhaps life will present you with an opportunity to give back to friends. Being there in times of need, helping out in times of illness or bereavement, or just being a sympathetic listener when a friend is stressed can be more valuable to them than you imagine.

 

You'll create blessings for yourself when you share your rituals, holidays, laughter and information. Welcome friends who are alone into your family's good times. Give yourself the gift of laughter, fun and happiness. I wish you all the holiday joys you can dream of.
