“I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel."

Helsinki, 3 degrees

Beautiful sunrise. Tree branches hitting windows, doors and streets. Wind pulling building tarpaulin. Cutting wind falling down trees and causing a windy sound through the window. This is how Boxing Day looked and felt like in Helsinki this year. Someone has said that stormy weather can feel cosy seen from the inside, and that is somewhat how it felt today at the office. We had a record amount of visitors today if one compares it with the average number we've had per day throughout December. I thought it was nice, that even in stormy weather, people find our office. Maybe our office can be seen as a point of security when other places are closed due to holidays and the weather gets rough. That's heartwarming.

Heartwarming is also the first word that comes to mind when I think about this Christmas. Even though this year's Christmas occured on a weekend, the two days spent with my family were exactly what I needed. I spent Christmas Eve with my family (including for the first time my sister's boyfriend) and Christmas Day with my boyfriend's family. I think Christmas is all about feelings. Feelings of warmth, togetherness, quietness, and above all love. After all, people might forget what you say, but they will never forget how you make them feel.
