Christmas is my favorite time of the year. I love all the “Hygge” with decorations, candle lights great food and spending time with our loved ones.

It is also a time for reflection and to be extra thoughtful for those who are less fortunate.

I always think about the Fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen, “The little match girl”.
A heart-breaking story of a poor girl selling matches on New Year’s Eve.

Unable to sell any matches, she’s hungry, cold and lonely.
As she lights the matches one by one to keep warm, pleasant visions of a roasted goose on the dinner table,
a beautiful Christmas tree and her beloved grandmother appear in front of her.

Although this is a sad story, it reminds me to encourage people to dream, have hope and to be grateful for everything we have in our lives.


Gratitude may be one of the most overlooked tools we have access to every day. It doesn’t cost anything and doesn’t take up much time, yet the benefits are enormous!
You show gratitude for what you receive, whether tangible or intangible. Meaning, you acknowledge the goodness in your life.

Studies show that Gratitude plays an important role for your health. Not just mentally but also physically.
Gratitude help boost your immunesystem, lower stress, improve mental health as well as your sleep.

Start writing down at least 5 things every day you are Grateful for – it doesn’t have to be big things, sometimes its the little things that matters the most.
