Right now I'm feeling a whole lot of pure joy. When I was a little kid, I wanted a of of stuff for Christmas. I wanted lots of toys (clothes were always so boring). I'd be blessed with a lot of family and friends that spoiled me with video games, puzzles, and pretty much anything a kid could want.

Now that I'm older, I want less "things." It's weird. I don't need physical things to make me happy. Maybe since I'm older and more established I need less things. Maybe I'm just more mature now: maybe. 

Even though that materialism and consumerism hits me once in a while, I can say that I'm perfectly happy. I have everything I need. I also have (almost) everything I want: a wonderful loving family, a career that I'm good at and absolutely love, and a beautiful home. (A great big 5 bedroom house with a huge backyard wouldn't hurt though.)

Today I got to spend time with my loved ones for Christmas. I have a big extended family and it seeing the one thing I look forward to most during the holidays. People came from all over California. It was great family reunion. It all filled my heart with so much joy. 

Santa doesn't need to bring me anything.
