Tis the season……..
Can you fill in the blanks? For so many of us, this time of turning into the holidays can be met with a heap of expectations along with memories from the past. Our mindfulness practices can truly help navigate this high time of stress with more ease. In this first full week of December, keep noticing where your mind is taking you! Is it a walk down memory lane? Is this a pleasant experience? Perhaps there is a fair amount of sadness and pain. Can you bring compassion to be with these feelings? Perhaps your mind is thinking about this holiday season and holding expectations for the family gathering. What would happen if you could release these thoughts and allow the celebration to unfold moment by moment?
Now is a great time to keep bringing awareness into each and every moment enjoying the sounds, sights, smells of this season of light and love. Give yourself the biggest gift each day and make room to enjoy what is here right now.
Happy Holidays to each of you! May the light of consciousness shine bright….
