What if you could access the deeper meanings available in our holidays? Adding more to one’s time, energy and financial budget could create a ripe environment for stress contamination. Rituals can become mindless, automatic, losing its glitter year after year. Begin by looking at your approach in what tarnishes or shines one’s outlook.

Shoulds and have-to’s create suffering.  As Charlie Brown commented to Linus “I think there must be something wrong with me, Linus. Christmas is coming, but I’m not happy. I don’t feel the way I’m supposed to feel.” What we feel dictates what we think. And what we think effects what we see. And what we see effects what happens.

Notice what you feel inside your body as you begin to navigate this upcoming Christmas/Hanukah/Kwanza etc. Do you fill or feel when sensation is alerting you? Addictions can arise from this. You don’t need to give your thoughts more power.

If you are feeling stuck & uninspired yet you are willing to receive support in letting go of the past, then I look forward to your reaching back out to me. Change your thoughts. Change your life. Dream BIG!
