Wonderful! Today’s special tips are helpful to explore how you can explore the festive season with fresh eyes. “Tradition becomes our security, and when the mind is secure it is in decay.” ~ Jiddu Krishnamurti Let December 2018 be YOUR time!! (Ok truth be told, it actually is your time… right along with all the other ones, especially when you are the one thinking in your mind.) When you recognize that in every moment you are at choice you unchain yourself from past experiences and bring yourself into the present moment where anything is possible. This includes trying new traditions that make more sense to your wellbeing. When a dear friend left her marriage of almost 30 years and wondered about what she would do at the holidays, we decided to celebrate together. Small and simple worked best for us both, but neither of us were willing to forego the Christmas Day feast. We just decided to do it differently, to not only suit our tastes, but also to avoid any depressing thoughts or lingering doubts about life choices. The traditional turkey dinner got left behind each year for a culinary tour of whichever country we chose. One year it was Greece. Another it was Italy and yet another our travelling tasty delights were centred round a Chinese theme. Rather than feeling disconnected from loved ones, we were joining in community and connection with folks around the world with the music and the food and it was delightful! Whether it is adding a new self-care tip or tool into your day, adding a new tradition or choosing the most meaningful tradition your family celebrates and truly seeing it with the fresh eyes of your Inner Child, you will know what is best for you this December and make the very best choices without worry of reprimand or fallout. You have that power! Holiday Tip: Give yourself permission to choose the most meaningful activities that nourish and nurture you. As a Sensitive Soul you may find that time in nature wins out over time in crowds. Need a break from your regular holiday meal, try a theme meal or holiday potluck with friends. Want to avoid hearing ‘Blue Christmas’ over and over, make your own holiday mix tape. Not a fan of the holiday movies but craving some screen time I will let you in on a little secret… the movie theatres are almost empty on Christmas Day, so you can catch the latest movie and get a great seat too! Trust your instincts and remember you are always at choice .
