What can I say…I have been incredibly fortunate this year. Receiving Stan Zemanek’s book early, having the immense pleasure of chatting with Steve Liebmann yesterday afternoon, having the chance to write ten blog posts in one day (including this one) that were all useful to some extent and being surrounded by some fantastic and wonderful people.
The one other thing that I would really like to see for Christmas is some more (light) rain. We had some tonight, and the Bureau Of Meteorology are predicting the likelihood of drizzle tomorrow at 30%.
Things, quite honestly, could not be better, and isn’t that a stark contrast to last week!
I would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a fantastic, fulfilling and joyous Christmas day. Whether or not you celebrate Christmas for Christian reasons is irrelevant in my mind as the meaning of the day is the same, and it is a day that draws people together and spreads joy. Hopefully this will be something which happens for you.
Somebody is going to accuse me of jumping on my hobby horses here, but if, for whatever reason, you aren’t feeling joyous for one reason or another. Please don’t let it get to you, there are plenty of people who would love to help spread their joy to you and make your day a good one. Lifeline (phone 13 11 14 in the ACT) and the similar services would love to help you…many charities will be putting on special lunches to gather large groups of people together for a celebration and I’m sure they’d love to have you…and talkback radio will be “on the boil” all day, with hosts who would love to have a chat with you and keep you connected with others via the wireless.
Merry Christmas everybody!
