My Grown-Up Christmas List

Christmas 2014There is a great carol, “Grown-Up Christmas List”, sung by Michael Buble. It is his adult wish list for Santa…

No more lives torn apart
That wars would never start
And time would heal all hearts
Every man would have a friend
That right would always win
And love would never end

I thought I would try it myself this year; verbalise those elements that I think would help make a better world. Admittedly, my worldwide influence isn’t quite as far reaching as Mr Buble’s, so my list brings it closer to home and looks at what I can do.

So, as much as I wish “That wars would never start”, being more of a peacekeeper amongst those close to me, is within my power.

“Every man would have a friend”…introduce people and help them make meaningful connections.

“That right would always win”…take a balanced approach and use a blindfold like Justice.

“No more lives torn apart”…provide tools to make life easier and reduce the stress.

Time to heal hearts and never ending love will follow naturally if the other items can be ticked off the list, therefore, I also ask for the strength of commitment.

Merry Christmas to you all

I hope you have a wonderful 2015 and take time to consider – what is your Grown-Up Christmas List?
