The holiday season can be joyous but also challenging. There is so much to do and so little time. Spending time with family and friends can bring up wonderful memories and memories that are not so wonderful. Keeping our emotional balance is most important. Try not to overdo, stay in the present moment, get plenty of rest and know your limits. At the end of another year, it is time for reflection. Not just on the past but also on how we want to live our lives going forward. It is time for letting go of that which no longer serves us. Old grievances or hurts only bring us down if we hang on to them. Forgiveness frees us.
In this world of multitasking, violence, and chaos we need to create a peaceful space; space where we can find clarity, creativity, and calm. Whether we find this space in meditation, bodywork, yoga or just long walks it will rejuvenate us and make our journey so much better.
