We are fam­ily

Cosmopolitan (Philippines) - - Editors’ Letter -

When the year is end­ing with a bang that’s ex­plo­sive and not in a good way (i.e., last month’s dev­as­tat­ing Fri­day the 13th in Paris and Beirut) and it’s dif­fi­cult to fathom all the chaos and catas­tro­phes in the world, one can’t help but ask: How can you find peace and joy in such trou­bled times? More so this sea­son, when you’re ex­pected to make merry (read p.38) as you cope with the frenzy of fes­tiv­i­ties (hol­i­day hacks ga­lore in this is­sue). The an­swer: You give. Not just presents, but more im­por­tantly, your time, and a lit­tle bit of your­self. Really cher­ish mo­ments and make mem­o­ries with those you love and value, and share with those in need (the sim­plest acts can change a life, p.104). In this fran­tic day and age, it is re­con­nect­ing with oth­ers, whether with our fam­ily of ori­gin (hol­i­day fam­ily drama? Read p.98), or of choice (like our dear­est friends), or with hu­man­ity, that gives mean­ing to and makes us re­al­ize what truly mat­ters in our short lives. Af­ter all, it’s a gift to be alive, so be sure to make your life the best kind you can ever have. And know that your Cosmo fam­ily is al­ways here for you, help­ing

you nav­i­gate life and live big, month af­ter month in ev­ery is­sue, and minute by minute on­line. Enjoy the hol­i­days!
