Day 22 of my 365 day blog challenge! Today I am talking about SPIRIT. The definition of spirit is the nonphysical part of a person that is the seat of emotions. Some synonyms include soul, psyche, inner self. I think of it as a way of feeling or a way of thinking or behaving. When we talk about being in the Christmas spirit we are talking about a feeling that is excited, cheerful and hopeful! It can also be a way of behaving like being in a giving mood! Remember the Charles Dickens book, “A Christmas Carol?” There were 3 spirits in the book, the spirit of Christmas past, present and future. These spirits took the form of ghosts, but possessed nonphysical parts of a person. Old Ebeneezer Scrooge was forced to look at his life and evaluate his behavior or his “spirit” and make some changes in his life or he would meet his end! This time of year we often find ourselves in the Christmas spirit or trying to get there! If we can just stop and think about what is most important in our lives like our families and how much we love them, we can start to build that Christmas spirit and hopefully keep it all year long!!! Signing off for now!
