The Holidays are upon us!!! It’s a love/hate relationship for most of us. I know it is for me. The pressure started earlier this year as those familiar red and green decorations started crowding the store shelves before Hallo’s ween had haunted or howled. And as pretty as the lights twinkling from the rooftops are, more often than not, this is the time of year that scratches old wounds, spotlights any unfulfilled goals, stresses any fractures in our relationships with ourselves and with others.
Wouldn’t it be nice if Christmas was like Thanksgiving, no presents or shopping stress, instead we brought a game to share together? Wouldn’t be nice to make something by hand or write a letter letting someone know you love them, so they can re-read it throughout the year?
As my time on this earth gets longer I miss a slower pace. I don’t care about “things” as much. If I had my Christmas wish it would be for more laughter, more love and more kindness.
Happy Holidays. I hope you put yourself at the top of your list.
In light and with love,
