Tis the season of hustle and bustle, coming and going, giving and receiving. It is a time to connect or a time to come undone with too many obligations. As you approach your holiday season, this year, don't let it get the best of you. This is YOUR time to connect to all that the holidays mean for and to you.
If you think about it, we all DO to BE feeling a certain way We shop, buy, wrap, give and receive but when it is all said and done, does it meet your initial expectations? Why not take a different approach this year and BE to DO. What do you love about the holidays? What do you want for yourself this holiday season? How do you want to feel when you are out in the traffic and the crowds? How do you want to be at the parties? How do you want others to feel and you to feel when gifts are exchanged? How do you want to BE? Do you want to be filled with ease, celebration, joy, peace, love, gratitude? Make your list and check it twice then invite yourself to BE those feelings NOW.
Before you click onto the next shopping website or wonder what you will get for the person that has everything or stress that there isn't enough money this year to have the Christmas you would like to have STOP & BREATHE....Now begin to BE...
Start by simply reminding yourself why you love the opportunity to give and to receive, welcome in the feelings of peace, connection, abundance, gratitude and all that is on your list. Welcome in the goodness...BE that which you hope to experience when the presents are opened, be the good feelings now simply by letting yourself know that it is about the BEing vs. the Doing. As you get yourself connected to the truth of what the holidays are for you, revisit this space often over the next several weeks as it will allow you to BE fully supported in experiencing exactly what you DO want and so much more. Invite the gift of being into the here and now and all of the doing will produce gifts beyond your wildest dreams.
Here's to YOU be-ing merry and bright :)
