I just wanted to quickly wish everyone a very happy holiday season. To those of you who have already been celebrating Hanukkah, sorry I missed extending a greeting. Same goes for you Solstice observers. Let the light shine!
To you Christmas celebrants, Merry Christmas….and Happy Kwanzaa to all of you who mark that holiday. This year, I took note of the winter Solstice, and my husband stated his desire to get out the Festivus pole.
The most important message I wanted to share with you is that I hope you will stop for a moment, take a deep breath, and enjoy just where you are right now. Your holidays consist of the whole experience inside you and around you, not just when you arrive at your family home and dive into the celebration. Lots has been written about Mindfulness and the manner in which it can add to our happiness. Perhaps you can use some of what you already know about mindfully experiencing this moment, and in doing so experience what your particular holiday is all about.
We wish for you a happy, healthy and prosperous 2015. But mostly, we wish for you to have awareness of as many of the moments of the end of this year and of the new one to come as you possibly may. And may they all be happy ones.
