‘Tis the season of gratitude, generosity, happiness and goodwill. It’s also a time for our little wishes, our secret hopes. What does my heart long for?
- New clothes- For the past years, I do not spend much on clothes to save the little money I have for more important purchases. I deserve a little pampering in this time of the year, don’t I? And it doesn’t hurt to look a little better than usual.
- New shoes- It’s been so long since I bought a new pair and the ones I own are already worn out. I’d love to have a new pair of nice little shoes that would take me to places of immeasurable beauty and magnificence.
- Books- I am head over heels in love with books and I don’t have the luxury to buy copies so I just download ebooks. Physical books, even the secondhand ones, would surely make me smile this Christmas.
In case you’re curious, I am in great want of Eleanor & Park and Fangirl, both authored by Rainbow Rowell. They are both about first love which I haven’t found yet. Haruki Murakami books (especially Kafka on the Shore) are also greatly wanted and would be immensely appreciated.
- Movie ticket(s)- Films would always be among my greatest loves, and there is no better way to spend this holiday season than to see movies.
- To find someone who’s in love with my mind. “It’s beautiful when you find someone that is in love with your mind. Someone that wants to undress your conscience and make love to your thoughts. Someone that wants to watch you slowly take down all the walls you’ve built up around your mind and let them inside.”
- Of course, to have the best time with the people who truly matter, those who would love and embrace every part of me and would not want me any other way. And those people? They’re called family.
- Most importantly, I’d like to be able to extend help to the victims of Typhoon Yolanda. I know anything, no matter how little, would mean quite a lot to them. And if ever someone incidentally comes across this post and happens to read every word, I hope that you would join me in continuously praying for them and for everybody who needs our prayers the most.
And for the rest of our days… may we always find peace in everything we do, may we have the courage and strength to rise up again after every fall, and may we never run out of love to give.
Also, let us not forget why we celebrate this special occasion. He was born for us. And He died for us. Let us live for Him.
Happy holidays! 🙂
Lots of love,
