"A unique look at the truth about Santa Claus. As the Christmas and holiday season is upon us let us carry the truth about Santa Claus with us now and throughout every season, year, month, week and day. Let's make this world a better place through our daily actions." --Shelley D Taken from FB: Donna Whelband * ATTENTION PARENTS WHO MIGHT NEED TO TELL THE TRUTH ABOUT SANTA * I absolutely love this, I couldn’t not share Son: "Dad, I think I'm old enough now. Is there a Santa Claus?" Dad: "Okay, I agree that you're old enough. But before I tell you, I have a question for you. You see, the “truth” is a dangerous gift. Once you know something, you can't un-know it. Once you know the truth about Santa Claus, you'll never again understand and relate to him as you do now. So my question is: Are you sure you want to know?" *Brief pause* Son: "Yes, I want to know." Dad: "Okay, then I'll tell you. Yes, there is a Santa Claus." Son: "Really?" Dad: Yes, really, but he's not an old man with a beard in a red suit. That's just what we tell kids. You see, kids are too young to understand the true nature of Santa Claus, so we explain it to them in a way that they can understand. The truth about Santa Claus is that he's not a person at all; he's an idea. Think of all those presents Santa gave you over the years. We bought those for you. We watched you open them. And did it bother us that you didn't know? Of course not! In fact it gave us great pleasure. You see, Santa Claus is THE IDEA OF GIVING FOR THE SAKE OF GIVING, without thought of thanks or acknowledgement. When I saw that woman collapse in town last week and I called for help, I knew that she'd never know that it was me that called an ambulance. I was being Santa Claus when I did that." Son: "Oh." Dad: "So now that you know, you're a part of it too. You have to be Santa Claus now. That means you can never tell a young kid the secret, you have to help us select Santa presents for them, and most important, you have to look for opportunities to help other people. Got it?" Look out for and help each other this Christmas and... always be kind

"When you wake up in the morning, what is yours first thought? Are you thinking about the past or the future? More times than not our thoughts are not in the present. I love this quote from one of my favorite people." --Shelley D

"This quote from Nayyirah Waheed was a great message from my morning meditation that is definitely share worthy. Have you ever experienced this? My take is don't focus on the negatives you may have experienced in the day, tomorrow is a new day, a new beginning. How will you make it better than yesterday?" --Shelley D

"Be grateful but remember that silent gratitude does not do much good for anyone. It is like buying a present for someone but not giving it to them. Share your gratitude daily. It can shape or change someone's life. How do you show your appreciation or gratitude to the people in your life?" -- Shelley D

"I believe we are our hardest critic. We can judge ourselves harshly without giving ourselves credit. There is always good days but yes there will be difficult ones as well. Remember to be gentle on yourself as you are doing your best and you are amazing. Keep going and never give up on a bad day. Be your biggest fan. You got this! You are remarkable. Have a fantastic day!" -- Shelley D

"I feel blessed every morning to have this remarkable view. It reminds me that there is beauty all around us. We just need to be open to seeing it. Remember to seize the day and make it better than yesterday. Today is a new day. This day, this moment is called the 'present' for a reason. My wish for you is that every moment is a special one to remember." --Shelley D

"Some things are just 'Soul Feeding'. Find the things that do this for you and then carve time into your life to do them. For me, one of those things is when I can disconnect somewhat from social media and the internet. My husband and just spent 3+ days doing just that. We had a wonderful little getaway in our campervan, Miss Daisy, with our bikes and good friends. Sometimes you need to disconnect to re-connect." --Shelley D

"Sometimes we need the reminder to focus on what is going right in our life or day. Too often we focus on the negative. I got to do this. I got to do that. I once heard, "how about changing one word in those thoughts. How about I GET to do this. I GET to do that." Think about things you are grateful for. I am grateful for quiet moments. What are you grateful for? " --Shelley D

"When did life get so complicated? It is refreshing to hang out with our two year old granddaughter. The first time I had her with me in my vehicle she kept saying "Mouse" and pointing in front of her. At first I was unsure what she was seeing. Then I saw it too. Never lose your imagination little one. You make life fun. Always appreciated the little things. Need a pick me up? Hang out with a two year old." --Shelley D

"This past year and half a message we have all heard is practise compassion and kindness (something we should have been doing in life anyway). Supporting one another and our small businesses has never been more important as now. Support entrepreneurs. This something we do whenever possible. Yesterday I supported some young entrepreneurs who were setting up a table at the end of their driveway, 3 little boys, brothers. Love my bouquet of dried flowers. They asked for $0.50, I gave them a $1. Be generous. Be kind." --Shelley D

"Food for thought. My practice of meditation teaches me to be more present in the moment. It is part of my morning routine. There is something very precious about being present in the moment. We generally miss so much in a day due to depression, anxiety, and distractions. We have so many distractions. Cell phones being a big one. During your day are you truly present? When you are in a coffee shop are you sitting looking at your phone or smiling at those around you? Taking in every precious moment. Where are you at? --Shelley D

"I love to watch the joy young children find in things all around them. It is a reminder to us all to slow down and be grateful for the small wonders that surround us daily. Embrace the day. I love this quote ... 'The only way to live is to accept each minute as an unrepeatable miracle, which is exactly what it is, a miracle and unrepeatable.' --Storm Jameson" --Shelley D
