This year I’m giving myself an attitude adjustment – I’m no longer having a tit-for-tat attitude. I’m no longer sending out Christmas cards based on who I received from the year before.
It seems that the mantra “I’ll be nice to you if you’re nice to me first” is rampant today. But if we live by that, we essentially turn all of our relationships into nothing more than a series of transactions. And if we’re only nice to people until they’re nice to us first, we miss out on so many blessings… so many missed relationships. Think how terrible our world would be if we all held that attitude.
So I’m getting rid of the “received” column from my Christmas card list from now on and making it a goal to add more people to the list every year, whether they’ve sent me a card or not. I’m going to be the one to be nice first! And I’m challenging you to do the same!
Merry Christmas & Happy New Year to you!
