Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

With everything that’s gone on these past few weeks in the world, let’s remember the true reason for the season.

 

It’s Christmas Eve and many are preparing to spend time and exchange gifts with family and friends. With everything that’s gone on these past few weeks in the world, let’s remember the true reason for the season. It’s not the superficial gifts, money or shiny ribbons/gift wrapping. Please celebrate love, health and happiness.

A better world

It may sometimes seem that the world is shallow and petty and focused only on meaningless, superficial concerns. Yet you can choose to live in a better world.

It may appear that there is an overwhelming amount of violence, despair and injustice in the world. Yet you can choose to live in a better world.

Look at the world in a positive light, and suddenly you’ve made it a better place. Act on the possibilities that you see, and you give real substance to your positive vision.

Imagine how the world would be if everyone became focused on the  positive possibilities. By directing your own awareness toward those possibilities, and by acting on them, you make them more vibrant, more visible and more compelling.

By working to improve your own attitude and your own life, you become a living example for all the world to see. And a living example is hard to ignore.

The way a better world emerges is one life at a time. Start with your own life, and let the goodness quickly spread outward from you As you continue to heal, may you enjoy your friends and loved ones, relish in the quality time you spend together and may you be at and experience true peace.

Many blessings, health and happiness to you, your families and friends!
