Life In December
The end of the year is upon us.
For many it consists of sending holiday cards and gifts, weaving through crowded parking lots hoping and praying that a parking space opens up near the store or mall entrance. Some are getting all the food and ingredients for holiday festivities and family gatherings. Some of us are traveling to see family and/or friends for the holiday(s). Some are staying home and having a quiet celebration. We are all busy one way or another.
Over the past year we have all had challenges in some area of our life, i.e. health, financial, work, etc.
As we move through this “uniqueness” and range of emotions we focus on moving forward and setting goals for the rest of the year and the New Year. It is important for us not to get so caught up in the problem that we are unable to see the forest for the trees. The more we focus on the not so wonderful situations the more prevalent and intense they become.
Thus, the reason for this article. No matter what comes down the pike it is how we decide to handle said situation. We can either react or act. The choice we make is important. By reacting we are allowing the situation to control us; by acting we are taking control of the situation. This is not to say we aren’t experiencing a slight panic or full range of emotions, it means we are deciding not to allow our emotional state to dictate the goings on.
So, on your Holiday To Do List take a bit of time for yourself and think of the goals you want to set, breathe, relax a bit, get focused and move forward with a song on your lips and in your heart.
Celebrate the beauty of life that is within you and let that glorious light of yours shine to the world and behold the miracle of you.
Let your light so shine…
