Christmas Fever Has Begun! Speak Your Heart Out!
Christmas is a bittersweet time of the year as the situation one may be in can make one full of mixed emotions at heart. Often people feel heavy at heart when they are away from their loved ones. Some people are still stuck in the past, and their inability to let go of their bad feelings don’t let them get along with their families, leaving them alone and in pain. Forgiveness is a gift and those who can cherish it can do wonders in life.
To say sorry and ask for forgiveness is never easy. It takes a lot of courage to ask for someone’s forgiveness whether that person is a friend or a family. So what should you do? Have some courage and if you cannot confront the person, then write some greetings this year to tell what your heart feels. Expressing your heart is the best thing that you can do this Christmas. Elders don’t want much from their children except for love and respect. If you have that in you that you can make your elders happy, make your parents feel important and loved, then even if you are not physically present, a greeting card from you will be enough.
How to write your emotions on a piece of paper?
Often people find it hard to express their feeling on a paper and look for ways on how they can leave an impacting message for their loved one to read. Whether it is in the form of apology or a proposal to marry your partner, a greeting can fill one’s eyes with tears. The key lies in expressing your heart in the truest way possible.
Follow the below tips write Christmas Greetings with Heartfelt messages straight from the heart:
- Start with some poetic, quotations or lines of wisdom that best express the value of this person you are writing for. It leaves a wonderful impact on the mind and the heart of the person reading. With whatever intention you are writing the greeting card, some lines can touch one’s heart forever and motivate them in different ways. So choose inspiring lines that the person reading can remember.
- Keep your message short but at the same time express the important things. Write what is necessary and what can clearly send a message to the person reading about what the greeting card is all about. Whether you are apologizing, sending a miss you note or a card of remembrance, do not clutter it with all the unnecessary talks. Do know that not everyone has that elephant memory to remember every little thing, so do not go overboard with writing about past so much. Keep it short and simple.
- Selection of the greeting card! When you visit a store, choose a greeting card that best expresses your heart. Read the lines, look at the colour scheme and the message it sends. If you can make a greeting card yourself, then that would be like icing on the cake. If you cannot make a card yourself, then that’s alright too! Just look for a card that satisfies the purpose.
- Use a clear marker that does not merge with the background. Often people write with black on all colours. Writing with black on a red background is going to make it difficult for the person to read. Choose a white marker that is best on most of the dark coloured greeting cards.
- Stick some photos if you have of the person for who you are writing the greeting. Some photographs in which you are in it with the person would be better. Some memoir or anything that you can stick it on the card will give it a cosier feel. Anything that can add value to the feeling you are trying to express through the greeting card will help to show your true feelings for this person.
Do not forget that when it comes to writing to your family member or that someone special, let the words flow as much as possible. Be comfortable and not shy away from your feelings as this is the time when you can truly express yourself in the right way at the right moment on the Christmas greeting card.
If you are far away, nothing can bring more happiness to the people you love than those words that come out of your heart. Christmas is a time to spread joy and laughter. Spread love and let your people know that you value them. Do not curb yourself; do not stop yourself this time! Speak up, your partner, mother, father, brother, sister, friend, anyone you know maybe waiting to hear from you. Let them know what you think about them too and that you love them more than anything in the world. Let that estranged feeling vanish away from your relationship forever. Kill that cold war with your siblings, make your parents happy, and let your wife and children know that they mean the world to you.
People who hold back on to the past will end up lonely with unrequited emotions building up inside them slowly killing them inside. Life is too short to keep grudges. Ask forgiveness if you are at fault and have the power to forgive if someone asks for your forgiveness.
#MerryChristmas to you and your family and may the jingle bells bring that joy and laughter this year that you have been waiting for oh so dearly! Let bygones be bygones and let the new beginning start and enrich your life with love, joy and happiness.
