Soon Revealing the New Hope and Financial Services of 2021
We hope that 2020 closes the gloomiest days of the pandemic and the Holidays bring you the wonder of the holiday season, the happiness of friends, and the Joy of family.
Every year at Gavrilov & Co, we have stated: Regardless of which holiday means something special to you, Christmas, Hanukkah, and Kwanza elevates the time togetherness time as a family.
Likewise, we are a family business and you’ll soon see how celebrating our new BRAND represents our family values.—More 2021 details coming to you soon. In fact, please see our previous blog for some appetizing hints about new aspects of strategizing your financial life.
Reflections While Window Shopping on Fifth Avenue, NYC
We celebrate this time as we pause to count our blessings. If anyone is telling you it’s a dark holiday in NYC, challenge them to see the beauty of the Fifth Avenue holiday display window installations. Featured in Harper’s Bazaar, the entire front of Saks Fifth Avenue looks like a castle of frost and diamonds.
The Saks holiday Windows depict aspects of classic life in New York, not simply merchandise. There is a giant Red Cartier ribbon wrapped around the entire Fifth Avenue Cartier building and a giant neon playful kitten paws the streamers.
Likewise, artists at Louis Viton have painted a 13 story tall, ultra-impressionistic, multi-colored Holiday Evergreen tree wrapped around the outside corner of their wall.
NYC: Wrapped in the Art and Spirit of the Season
All these visual gifts from retailers simply reflect a new and lively economic awakening we know is coming with our Holiday Season. As Christmas approaches, as Hanukkah shines, as the time for Kwanza draws near, we celebrate the beauty all around us. We recognize all types of beauty: natural, man-made, and of course, even economic.
Let us recognize the joy that comes from the charity in our hearts. You know we only feel that joy when we give time and talent to others in need. 2020 and COVID-19 have given us all opportunities to serve each other. And the more love we give, the more we have.
The Perfect Holiday Gift: Hope, Financial Services, and Holiday Smiles
Unlike a financial institution we shall leave unnamed, we are not asking, “What’s in you’re wallet?” At least not today…We are asking, What’s In Your Holiday Smile? We are not referring to the flat or frozen smile you use on-demand.
Therefore, please, for this holiday season, we implore you, let’s exchange authentic smiles-even if they are under masks. And more importantly, share your best authentic smiles with your loved ones.
You know the smile. The authentic smile starts in your heart, curves up your lips, and illuminates your eyes. Just think of a blessing at this special season. See? You can find the smile begin.
Likewise, this smile can be provoked by something as simple as twinkling holiday lights, a random bit of memorable holiday music, or a happy child.
Hope, Random Scientific Facts, and Holiday Smiles
As number-centric people, we have spent years investigating smiles factually and scientifically. Likewise, Sarah Stevenson recently reported on the science behind a smile in Psychology Today.
Then, she revealed several physical reasons that the smile creates a mystical connection and a magical gift.
Certainly, the Gavrilov & Co Holiday Smile is Contagious:
Holiday Power: Making a Smile Boosts your own Mood.
This rings true even if at first, given the hectic holiday rush, you must make it with extra effort. If you find little hope in today, think of a Happy Holiday memory, and grin a little as you read. So, Let’s see if it brightens your day and inspires a smile.
Did you know that a Smile Affects Your Brain?
To clarify, according to the experts, “Each time you smile you throw a little feel-good party in your brain. The act of smiling activates neural messaging that benefits your health and happiness.” Folks, this is the science of Neuropeptides.
Smiles are Nice, Not Naughty: Neuropeptides
Your smile releases Neuropeptides which have stress-fighting capabilities. Then, they send emotional messages through the neurons all over the body.
So—smile, and de-stress. And after the first of the year, when you strategize your personal financial life, you will find yourself with hope, financial services and holiday smiles all the time!
The Physical Process of the Smile
Your sparkling holiday smile instigates the neurotransmitters and floods your system with dopamine, endorphins, and serotonin.
- The act of giving someone a smile releases these “feel good” substances directly into your bloodstream. That must be why the accountants at Gavrilov & Co work so hard for their clients—we love seeing them lead better, healthier lives with financial services.
- Then, in turn, your blood pressure and heart rate lower.
- Thus, our own smile relaxes us, just as it relaxes the lucky one who receives it.
Some scientists even believe that smiling leads to a longer life. A smile is a perfect Holiday gift–It is one-size-fits-all, eminently returnable, and highly personal.
An Effort to Give You Some Smiles…
So, we close this blog with a holiday verse by Thomas S. Monson. We might have used it in previous years, but we will probably keep using it until we find something better. We’re not sure it can be said any better!)
He states that the holiday spirit is the:
“Spirit of giving without a thought of getting.
It is happiness because we see joy in people.
It is forgetting self and finding time for others.
Thus, it is discarding the meaningless and stressing the true values.”
