‘Tis the season, after all, so let’s take a moment to consider how we are really celebrating this year. Begin by thinking about what you are giving.
In each moment, in every beautifully wrapped box, we have an extraordinary opportunity to give something to someone. Are you giving gratitude, giving kindness, giving love, giving forgiveness, giving hope, giving happiness, giving peace, giving laughter?
Place an intention on each gift you give, something personal to the recipient. Place an intention on every interaction you have, when you see a neighbor, get your morning coffee, walk into the post office, while waiting in line at the bank or food store- it is all an exchange of sorts.
Be patient with yourself and others, be gentle. We do not know what others are going through- it can be a difficult time of year for some. Smiles are healing, and we never know the effect we have on others.
How are you celebrating the season? What are you giving?
