TodaysConnection:”Xmas  can spread love to unfamiliar  places”~INspiredGuide

Traditional Xmas is a time for excess  giving,  wanting , surprises and  love. For most people this is happiness. But is it always?  Why not have a non-Traditional Xmas  like an alternative ‘Inspired Guide xmas wish List’ which  is less about materialism and more about others.

The end result is still happiness but  in a fulfilling and different way. Most of all its a surprise!
