I’m very fortunate that I enjoy a good family life. I have a wife and kids and my parents are still around. I always try and spare a thought for those Christmas who don’t enjoy such things. They don’t get a chance to see their family. They must be so hard to do especially at Christmas when the entire media is ramming family values down your throat.
So is try and talk to people whether it’s on the train or on the street as you never know when the next time they might get a chance to speak to someone will be. Sometimes a simple hello and a smile, can be enough to make someone’s day.
Started trying to help out a little bit in the city that I lived London. I volunteer to help out at the soup kitchen at Christmas time. It’s a small sacrifice and takes a little bit of my time, but I like to think that to the people I’m helping that it means the world.
If you’d like to volunteer at a soup kitchen this Christmas. I’d recommend volunteering through here.
