Christmas Joy

 

Christmas is coming up shortly and it’s the time of the year where I reflect the

year – 2013. I always write a short list of things I’m grateful for.

 

1) Family and Friends

2) The success of The Wong Side of Life, The Joy House Film festival

and that my short film, Colour of Change – selected for film festivals,

(which means my life messages – of “joy” and “not judging people unless

you’ve walked in their shoes” & importance of diversity – will continue to spread.

3) Being able to help / contribute to charities I support – The Cancer Council

& Mission Australia.

4) Being continuously creative

5) selected for the City of Sydney’s “Crossing Boundaries” show for 2014

6) making new friends.

7) being part of the Media Entertainment & Arts Alliance’s Diversity Committee.

8) The privilege to have a lorikeet lay an egg on my balcony.

I’ve never had a pet before, so it was an amazing experience.

I’ll miss Little Don. My Christmas wish would be for him to

fly and visit me. That would be the best gift. Then I’d know

he’d be ok.

 

Christmas is also a difficult time for some people, as they may not be in good

health or they may have lost love ones and therefore it may be a time of

loneliness. It’s important to be mindful of these people and try to help in

a small way.

 

Every year I give books to my local Children’s hospital and give Christmas

left overs or my clothes to the homeless – a small gesture of kindness can

mean so much to people.
