As the holiday season is starting, we can easily be distracted from the important things in our lives.

The thought of what gifts we are going to get is constantly on our minds. We write about the things we want before Thanksgiving, then go out and fight on Black Friday for things we do not need the day after we should be thankful for what we have.

With the holiday season starting, we should be thinking of ways to give, instead of get. Buy your friend a Christmas present, or simply take them out for a meal and enjoy their company. With graduation only a few years away, for some only a couple months, these are the last chances we will get to enjoy these experiences before we are thrown into the adult world with no safety net.

Spend time with your family. It may not seem “cool” to spend time with your family, but in a few years when we do not get to see them every day, I do not want to look back and regret the missed time spent away from them.

This holiday season, give thanks. Be blessed with what you do have, and what you will have in the future. Good things come with time.

Yes, enjoy the holidays and eat so much food that you cannot move, but do not let the holidays turn you into a Grinch. Be thankful for what and who you have in your life and stop focusing on the things you do not have.
