When the holiday season rolls around we send and receive the smallest and most heartfelt gifts -- unique holiday cards. We remember the kindness of people during that time of the year and let it touch our lives but when the holidays are over – we can sometimes forget those good feelings. Try keeping a holiday journal. Think about each individual person on your card list this year and then start to explore your feelings about them in your journal. Is there someone you have lost touch with but miss terribly? What do you want to say to that person? When it comes to sending a card to the people we see all the time, do you want to share something that you don't everyday? Are there people who you feel obliged to write to? Work through the feeling of obligation through journaling and try to understand something deeper about your relationship to that person before you send a card – it may change what you say to them this year. Long after the season has drawn to a close, look back on your Holiday Journal and try to recapture that happiness.
