I Believe in December

A lot of people think that what I believe is crazy. Especially the fact that I believe in something I can’t see, or something I don’t know as fact. But there is something magical about believing in what you don’t know. It’s the feeling you get in December.

Whether it’s Santa Claus or friendship or giving, in December we practice the act of believing, and it brings an extra measure of hope and positivity into the world.

I know it’s a little cheesy and impossible to prove, but I think there is some scientific implication to the act of believing—it’s almost like it’s a law of nature. Believing changes people, and it changes the energy that connects us.

When we choose to look past the limited knowledge we possess in our brains and believe in something bigger, it changes the way we see the world. It makes impossible things seem a bit more possible and it helps us overlook things that don’t matter.

I’m sure you can see where I’m going with this sales pitch, so I’ll just go ahead and go there–

That feeling you get in December doesn’t have to end when January comes. I’m not saying I sing carols or  believe in flying reindeer year round. But year round, I believe.

I believe in a higher power, who is a limitless source of love, friendship, and giving.

I believe in God.

If you think that sounds crazy, think about how you feel in December. And while it might not make perfect sense, maybe it won’t seem quite so crazy anymore.

Here’s to believing in something bigger than Frosty the Snowman.

Merry Christmas, from Le Normons.
