: Joy :

When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy-

The season of “peace Hanukkah, Festivus, Kwanzaa, Christmas, winter solstice, and  New Years arrive once a year. Some folks look forward to this time – Others, like myself Dread them. Can we peel away some of the stress, and find time for peaceful days?

I’m not a complete Scrooge – Really! I enjoy winter and the holiday season, all of the celebrations, traditions, and joyous gatherings they bring. And there are some tangible benefits we can reap from this time of year – like spending more face-to-face time with friends, rather than “liking” them on social media. Also hidden within the holidays are remedies for being a grinch and a curmudgeon. Such as joining family and old friends for a pick up hockey game, a walk after dinner or even a bike ride. For most of us though, the wear-and-tear of the most “Wonderful Time” of the year is simply too much to handle. As much as hibernation sounds like the perfect solution

Daily Meditation:

Meditation or whatever you want to call it, can truly bring us peace. Slow down with me this morning, let’s take in the lovely sights, the alluring scents and sounds that are traditional for this time of year And as Cousin Eddie once said: “That’s the gift that keeps on giving the whole year.”

  1. The last holiday present I received was a brain teaser puzzle called “Stress.” I was like, great, you’re giving me stress for Christmas. That was 4 years ago. Now I kindly do not accept and send back presents people send me. It was tough at first, but now both my family and I enjoy a stress free relationship during the holidays. Ahhhh relief. Yeah cousin Eddie, every day is magical. Peace.

    Indeed. Apparently my solution this year was to grt sick. :-). End of semester let down i suppose. Either way, Dulce and I are having some lovely time together cuddling in bed. That, my friend, is good for the soul. 🙂

    I had gone through so many years enjoying the giving of presents, especially when I knew the recipient would like what I had selected, but otherwise feeling very annoyed during the holidays. This year is the first time in probably several years that I’m not annoyed. Instead, I feel content and am wishing strangers a happy holiday..when I normally have trouble saying it to non-strangers.
