We all grew up with the saying that “a dog is man’s best friend”, would you agree?  I have had a few dogs in my day and I can say that every one of them provided me with unique unconditional companionship that will never be replaced or emulated again by any other dog or person in the world.

Do you have a best friend that you can truly count on to be there for you when you need them the most and that will be devoted to you in your time of need and give to you unconditionally and not ask for much in return.  A friend like that is hard to find nowadays.  I have found it strikingly odd that in the best of times our friend are always there for us laughing, smiling, and carrying on with us but the moment that the chips are down and we really need them that all of a sudden they are nowhere to be found, always have something else going on, or are completely unwilling to help  you out.   Have you ever had that happen to you.

If you are considered someone’s best friend then go all the way or don’t “fake the funk” by being their best friend one minute and then turn your back on them the next because it is an inconvenience for you.  Whether you want to believe it or not, one day you may actually need their help too and what do you think they are going to do.  Well, I’m not sure what will happen depending on the relationship you have with that person but it will go either one of two ways.  They will either help you or turn their back on you just the same as you did.  So my advice to you is choose your friends wisely, but never let them down.  You must always be willing to give unconditionally even when it’s all on the line.

Even Rich People Have Bills by Terry W. Thompson.

The holiday season is upon us and stress levels are getting higher and higher. We have holiday commitments to family and friends, shopping for everyone (and we don’t want to forget anyone) at stores that are jammed packed full of people, parties to go to, a lot of driving on roads that are backed up for miles, and through it all we somehow maintain our sanity.

During these stressful times we need to learn how to relax and not let all these things get to us. Below are some holiday tips and activities that will help you get through the holidays by taking your mind off the things that are keeping you from having a happy holiday.

1. Call an old friend or family member you haven’t talked to in a while, share some old memories and wish them a happy holiday

2. Help someone you normally wouldn’t help with a project they need help with

3. Give a gift to someone in need

4. Do some volunteer work

5. Play a board game with your family

6. Lift a stranger up by wishing them a happy holiday

7. Partake in a random activity that you normally would not do or have been putting off

8. Pull out the musical instrument you have hiding in the closet and learn a holiday song

9. Make popcorn and enjoy a movie with the family

10. Be the picture taker and capture the moment of the holidays and watch as everyone smiles

These are just a few, and the list could go on and on. But it’s up to you to enjoy this holiday season. Anyone who has ever known me, knows that the most important “Right” is “Right attitude”. I hope that you all have the “Right attitude” this holiday season and may you find happiness in the smallest of things that will forever be a lasting memory, and if for some reason you cannot enjoy it, then remember, EVEN RICH PEOPLE HAVE BILLS ! ! ! LOL, Have a wonderful HOLIDAY.

Sincerely,

Terry W. Thompson
