I typically don’t watch a lot of TV, but my screen time increases during this time of year due to the Hallmark Channel’s Christmas movies. They lure me in every time. They add that extra touch of holiday spirit within our home and deliver messages that leave a lasting impression. The movies put emphasis on the value of family, traditions and dreams. They give hope and extend joy. The fact that I can always count on a happy ending is my favorite part :-)
As you celebrate this holiday season with family and friends and plan for the New Year, I encourage you to keep in mind these few, of many, life reminders shared in the Hallmark Channel’s Christmas movies. They’re simple yet profound, inviting us to take a step back from the daily grind in order to become present with ourselves and our surroundings. They’ve motivated me to reflect on my values and reevaluate my priorities accordingly. I hope they offer something special to you as well.
Spend time with those who make you feel like the person you want to be.
Be grateful for the little things in life.

~The Christmas Note
Life is rich because of the people in it.
Show joy and joy will show itself to you.
~Debbie Macomber's Dashing Through the Snow
Things can change in a blink of an eye, so when you find passion for a person or a life that you always dreamed of, you just can't back up. Don't give up on something so rare.
~Karen Kingsbury's The Bridge
Trust your instincts. That's really the best way to make the right choice.
