What are you wishing for? What is on your holiday list?

By David Joel Miller, MS, Licensed Therapist & Licensed Counselor.

What is on your Holiday wish list this year?

As we kick off the run-up to Christmas, the stores are getting busy. There are black-whatever deals and there are wish lists for Santa, mom, dad and the government.

Watching the news this season has made me wonder whether we should be so disappointed for what we do not have or grateful for the things we do have.

Are you saying that you need a newer larger house?

OR – Do you wish your house had a roof?

Are you griping about the electricity bill?

OR – Do you wish you had electricity?

Are you carving Chocolate?

OR – Are you carving some food for your children?

Are you wishing for more time off from work?

OR – Do you wish you had a job?

Maybe this season we should continue to remember the lists we made of things to be thankful for and expand our gratitude lists at a faster rate than we add to our wish lists.
