Love the Holiday Presence
Happiness is a divine freebee –
no down-payments, no hidden costs, no need to wait,
no special conditions, no qualifications needed,
no extra sacrifice, no more suffering. Nothing is required
other than your signature of acceptance.
I’m making a list, now checking it mindfully…
1. Create a Mindful Holiday and make “presence” the central theme.
Be indulgent as you choose to nourish your body, mind and spirit
2. Focus on giving and receiving from the heart.
3. Spend time not money.
Enjoy the company of loved ones, baking. skating, walking or simply sharing a pot of tea by the fire.
4. Make gift giving meaningful.
Choose games, puzzles, crafts, theatre tickets, a pass to a Qigong class, these are gifts which will bring people together over the holidays, or provide a quality experience for the recipient. Shop mindfully by supporting local businesses. A craft fair, a farmer’s market or an interesting local independently owned business will offer a more personal selection.
Remember, the best gifts have come from the heart. So, now back to your list…
Wishing you a wonderful week full of the love and joy of the season,
