Yesterday, as I was wrapping my son’s gifts, I stopped by when, in my left hand was the wrapping paper, and, in my right hand, the video game I bought for me (MATRIX : the path of neo for PS2).
For sure I could have start playing the game before Christmas but, how could I do that while in the same time, I complain every year about acceleration of our modern consumption society and the loss of christmas spirit.
Didn’t have I, in front of me, the opportunity to retrieve the naivety of Christmas Eve ?
For sure I did.
The situation lead me to realize that I could slow down for a while.
I realized I could be kind with myself and make myself a spiritual gift.
Simply by making myself a true, real and concrete Christmas gift.
So, after I had wrapped gifts for my son, I made the same thing for me.
And tomorrow morning, December 25th, I will open it with him.
I decided to act like this because I know for sure that it will help me to remember that I am definitely my best friend.
Furthermore, it’s gonna to make me share something more with my son and make me feel closer to him. And him closer to me.
At least, I know that I’m going to spend hours on this game.
No food but pizzas.
No drink but sodas.
Playing til 3 in the morning.
Waking exhausted at 7 thinking about the next boss to kill.
Isn’t it heaven on earth ?
Isn’t it true freedom ?
Isn’t it true happyness ?
Isn’t it true love ?
For sure it is.
Merry Christmas. Take care and be happy.
