With all of the stressed out clients, friends and acquaintances I see daily during the Holiday Celebration Season..I have to ask everyone to write out the answer to this question.
"What do the holidays really mean to you? What would you like them to mean? Have you lost the connection, have the Holidays simply turned into a gift giving/receiving time of year with no real foundation?"
For those of you who are familiar with my work, these questions cannot be simply answered in your head. They must be written down. And, then the solutions must be in writing if you really want to see a change occur.
Maybe this is the year to create new rituals, for yourself, or your family, to add the spark of spirit that seems missing.
What would they be? Reading every evening about the meaning of Christmas? Hanukkah? Or any other seasonal holiday?
Slow down. Take control of your life today. Retrieve it from the marketers who want us to believe it's all about the material gifts. It's not.
