Don't forget to give your free gift this Christmas

Interacting with one another

This festive season you don't need to leave your home now, if you choose.You can do your shopping on line,even your groceries,pay the bills,work from home and send each other emails rather than talk.Everything is becoming electronical even machines are being used for self-service checkouts at the supermarkets; electronic phone messaging reminders; text messaging; blogging etc get the picture and you can finish off with a chair massage to take away your stress; how impersonal don't you think?

With computers taking over our lives, are we losing the art of conversation?Good conversation is one of the great joys of human existence.It makes the world go round.Communication represents what we are and who we are.Successful relationships and businesses are built by communicating with each other.

Christmas is just around the corner and there are many people who are lonely and don't see anyone at this holiday time.What if you were to go round to see a lonely neighbour with a box of chocolates or a mince pie, not only would you make their day but it would make you feel good as well.If you give without thought of return it will come back to you in abundance.

If there were no people to share life with then would life be worth living?Don't take that special person in your life for granted and remember a hug costs nothing.If they are special don't just think it say it! "You are special" We all need a shoulder to cry on, a pat on the back or better still a back massage, or a nice comment.Pick up the phone and say "I was thinking about you", or "I thought that I would give you a ring, how are you?"

People need people(I kneed them too!)just as much as they need food and drink.The greatest rewards in life don't come from the accumulation of material things.In years to come when you look back on your life, good memories will come from the special people that have been part of your life.

If you want to give someone a gift, give your-self, you are free and special to do so!

A hug is free!
A hug is free!
