Holidays are supposed to be about connection and traditions that bring us closer together and how we do that could be changing! One family I heard about had been sending the same darn Christmas card back and forth for over 30 years! There would be an annual letter included highlighting the family’s happenings and a few jokes. The following year the receiving family would do their letter and update and back that tattered card would go. You can imagine the fun of keeping track of the card and whose turn it was to write the stories could be! And the joy each of them got as they reflected on all the things that had changed over time. If what you seek this December is a deep soul connection, you may not be recycling your Hallmark cards like that family did, but I bet you are thinking about creating something that has a personal touch. Here’s an idea for you. Holiday Tip: Technology can be our friend at this time of year. It is so much easier to send a group email or fun homemade holiday video to friends and family who are spread across the country who may not make it round your dining room table this holiday. Keep the messages short and heartfelt and be sure to include your entire family… the two leggeds and the four leggeds! It doesn’t need to be perfect. It needs to be real. You can only imagine how happy your friends and family will be to know that you remembered them. And the eco-friendly folks on your list will love that no trees were harmed making your special message. And for us quieter Sensitive Souls… telling our stories once may be easier to do than having to relate it to each relative repeatedly. Sometimes the introvert in us wants to connect quietly, in our flannel pajamas with a nice cup of tea rather than bundling up and heading out to parties. So get reflect on what you would really like to share, find a special spot that is quiet and has good light, get out your iPhone and shoot a wee video to share with friends and family. It will be real and personal and help you share your love and good wishes in a way that #FeelsSoulGood!
