I would like to start this article with a GIGANTIC THANK YOU! Because of all the support from friends, family, colleagues and Identity readers, Identity was able to grant 39 wishes to children and families in need. The goal was 30 and we kicked ass by granting 39! October was an achievement month for sure and we all should be proud for making others smile. Make sure you check out the video toasting on the main page, to the right. We are working on a big video that will show all the wishes, so stay tuned!
It’s November and I know many of you are starting to stress because of the good old holiday season. It’s easy to get overwhelmed with the gift shopping, the parties, and spending more money. Try to take each day one day at a time and appreciate the little things in life. Appreciate that you have family and friends to be with. Appreciate the time with your kids and the fun the holidays do bring. Appreciate the holiday smells from the foods, candles, trees, etc.
Take a look at this mini list for you to keep in mind through the holidays.
1. Time with family – reuniting with relatives
2. The joy and laughter – gift sharing and stories
3. Time off of work – a break from the daily grind
4. The delicious foods – the time to indulge without guilt
5. Making memories – each smile makes a new memory
Last, the new issue with 35+ new articles comes December 1st! Our goal is to become a monthly magazine, but as you know it takes time to grow and build a staff. I would love to hear your thoughts on Identity. What would you like to see more of, less of, or any other thoughts you may have, please share!
Feel Beautiful Everyday!
