'tis the season

'tis the season

December 14, 2017

There is something about the Christmas Season...the lights and the music and the cold weather, that has a warming effect on my heart. It renews my faith in the power of kindness and gives me pause to consider my blessings. I'm even warmed so much that I will wish strangers a 'Merry Christmas' or 'Happy Holidays' where my non-Christmas habit is to just keep to myself!

There are a few other times during the year that cause my heart and spirit swell with such joy and anticipation and hope. If I don't want to be like forgotten, frostbitten and unrecognizable foil-wrapped leftovers in the back of the fridge, then these renewals are essential for my heart!

It's during this season that I am afforded the unique, tinsel-studded occasions to evaluate my heart and my values. Now, I strive for renewal more often than the occasional change of season (as I hope we all do) but I think you'll agree that Christmas has a certain magic that can coax even the coldest heart to get warmed by the fire.

So whether you're spreading cheer by singing loud (for all to hear) or wishing a stranger a heart-felt "Merry Christmas" I hope you're stoked this season.

 

Warmest wishes to you and your loved ones during this Holiday Season!

My particular beverage of shame is coffee. Even though I have a low caffeine tolerance I will still keep drinking it. I'm like that kid at the party that knows they shouldn't have more than a couple but will still go do shots with Captain Tank Top just to show that I can because somehow this will be different...
