'Tis the season and all that

This is the time of year that you get gratitude, peace on earth and goodwill to all men crammed down your throat. What I don't understand is what people do for the other 11 months of the year?

We should be grateful for many things, for instance if you are reading this then you most likely have a roof over your head, electricity and snacks in the fridge. So maybe you need a bit more cash to live as comfortably as you would like, well I hate to break it to you but the more cash you have the more you spend. And it's been scientifically proven that people with more money aren't necessarily happier, they just have nicer things. So instead of wanting more be thankful every day for what you already have: a roof over your head, the small luxuries that we take for granted (yes that soft TP is one of them), the people that love you, hey you may even have someone that worships you! And of course, the opportunity to do something nice every day.

Maybe it's naive of me but I do have faith in the human race (never, never in corporations though). I know there are a lot of good people out there because I have the pleasure of knowing quite a few them. They are the ones that spread peace on earth and goodwill to men 365 days a year. Well maybe not every day because let's face it, everyone is entitled to a bad day every once in a while. But they are the ones that help you get through those tough days, they are the ones that are there for you when you think that things can't get any worse and they in fact do.

So here's to all of the good ones, tip that glass of champagne, or prosecco - you know who you are! And toast to gratitude, peace on earth and goodwill to all men because as you know, 'tis the season
