Feeling The Christmas Spirit All-Around

People used to say "Time flies when you're having fun", but I can assure you that I didn't have the slightest fun in the past couple of months and yet suddenly here I am still alive and kicking on Christmas Eve.

A bad half of the year

From the packed and exhausting schedule to neverending unexpected problems, I don't have much energy left to celebrate. And let's not forget about the virus that's still up and around ruining so many plans and activities around the end of the year.

Honestly, this year has been mostly disappointing and filled with bad memories for me, especially the last half of it. A close relative of mine has been sick for the past few months and it's not getting better. We need to watch over him almost 24/7 in fear that he fell down or something happens to him so the mood in the house is gloomy, to say the least.

I kinda missed how the Christmas season back in my childhood felt, where everyone is happy and we can all have fun. Celebrating with friends and family, visited relatives in other cities, did charities with the Church for people who needed help, and a lot more events that time flies by so much I felt that December was the shortest month of the year back then.

But I was taught by my parents to always be grateful for what we have, and that's what I'm planning to do anyways. I'm still thankful that everyone in my household is still alive though some not in perfect condition, and that I can get by the hellish semester (hopefully with a great score) safely.

Well enough sob stories and lamenting about the past. Let's move on to the main dish!

Christmas spirit in read.cash

What I wanted to share today was how the writings from everyone here lately have lit up the Christmas spirit within me. From the Christmas wishes, celebrations, giveaways, and yearly reflection, it's almost as if I'm around with my friends back then, just sharing good feelings all around the place.

Eventhough things might not be the way that most of us would've wanted, I can see everyone being grateful and sharing positive vibes all around the platform. It makes me smile knowing that people from all around the world can still be so inspirational even when things are not going in their way.

I really love reading how much people have progressed their writing and growing their profile up to this point. Some have grown so much since I was last here, while others, unfortunately, took a long break or even stopped posting altogether.

Read.cash as a platform, not only help people earn BCH as they write and learn more about writing and cryptocurrency, it also serves as a place where people can meet others from all around the world and build communities that even felt like an online family. It also became a place where people can pour out their pent-up feelings and frustrations, share their life experiences and tricks, and so much more!

Looking back, I can say that finding out about read and noise has been one of the things I'm most grateful about this year besides the health and survival of me and my family. I know that I might have not used the chance I've been given to in this platform to the fullest and that I didn't live up to the expectation that I set up myself, but I do hope that I can get my things together soon enough and plan ahead better.

My Christmas this year

As the night is getting closer, my head is filled with things that I'll be praying for before I go to sleep. It's been a tradition in my family to have a special prayer on Christmas Eve to thank the Lord for his blessings and mercy in our lives. We'd also slip in some wishes like our dreams and hopes for the coming days and for unfortunate events to stay away from us.

I know for sure that we won't be celebrating Christmas grandly this year in my household, but I'm hoping that we'll still be able to feel the joy and festiveness of the celebration regardless of whatever is going on in our daily lives.

I've probably said this in every Christmas-related article that I've read here, but let me say it again this one time.

For the ones who are celebrating Christmas, I hope for His blessing and protection to enclose you and your surroundings, for your wishes to come true, and may you have a truly blissful Christmas celebration!

And for the ones who are not celebrating Christmas, I hope you'll be having a fun and enjoyable holiday filled with happiness all around. May your days ahead be stress-free and all your good plans be rewarded and fulfilled.

That's it for me today, I hope you'll have a great day!

Merry Christmas, my dear friend. I just lost my mom this year, the first Christmas without her. No matter how challenging our situation is, we gotta fight for those who depend on us.

No matter how bad things went, don't lose hope. Life is affiliated with trials and challenges, not to make us suffer but to make us stronger. I do wish everything went well by the grace of God. Anyway just like you I have also seen some users who gives up writing, I don't know what happen to them as they just quit, maybe they just take A break but will be back soon. Merry Christmas mate.
