TowTimes.com - Is There a Little Grinch in Your Spirit Right Now?


Recommended Posts

I’m not sure why kids love to watch How the Grinch Stole Christmas, because for me Jim Carrey – who plays the green and mean Mr. Grinch, looks pretty scary. My grandkids love the lyrics in the song You’re a Mean One Mr. Grinch, especially the words, You’re a three-decker sauerkraut and toadstool sandwich with arsenic sauce! While Mr. Grinch may have a heart that is an empty hole, the true meaning behind the story is quite heartening.

I had someone today tell me outright that they don’t like this time of year and called themselves a Grinch. I was taken aback a bit as this person is not normally like that. I agree, though, with one person who was quoted as saying: “… between the commercialism and cynicism of an overdose of holiday merchandise, marketing and social media, there is an increasing apathy toward the brouhaha being raised over the mindless expenditure and consumerism.”

I am not sure how or if you celebrate the holidays this time of year, but what the Grinch discovered was that the true spirit of love and joy “doesn’t come from a store.” It is a joyous feeling, a state of mind, and any gift giving should come straight from the heart and should be received with an open heart.

I’ve learned that many people find things to complain about, but many do not express any gratitude. I left a doctor’s appointment today and I received some great news. I was smiling and I think I skipped back to my car. On the way back to the shop, I noticed a banner on the boulevard waving the word “Joy.” That is exactly what I felt in my heart and I know the mean, green Mr. Grinch finally felt it too.

The Grinch story is a lesson in point if you don’t want to become a Grinch. Focus on the spirit of gifting joy, love and humor to your loved ones.
