I was talking to a friend today about how easy life is if we simply check in and see what we truly in our heart of hearts want. We were discussing the upcoming holiday season with all its challenges. She was in the process of deciding which parties to give or attend; how much money to spend on the people she loves; and, how she was going to find time for herself. I suggested she simply check in with herself. What does she truly want to do? Do that.
We can easily get off track this time of year. We commit first and consider second. And, before you know it, we are so tired or stressed we miss the whole spirit of the season.
As Marianne Williamson says life is filled with good things – love, caring for each other, peace, happiness, smiles, laughter, music, friends, children, dogs, blogs! – and, anything else you believe is good! Maybe doing only what we truly want and focusing on all the good things will allow Joy to happen to us at this special time!
