Christmas Day – a time when families gather together and follow traditions that have been passed down through generations. This is a mixed bag of sacred and profane; joy and suffering. Families are complicated.
Today, if your life is…..complicated, lonely, disappointing…I encourage you to do something different.
Text people and let them know you are thinking of them. Find a way to enjoy the day you have even if it doesn’t fit your expectations. Aren’t with the people you love love love today? That’s ok, love the ones you’re with! Don’t be a grumpy pants just because the day isn’t ordered according to your preferences!
Practice a sacred spiritual discipline. Don’t have one? No worries – there’s an app for that! You could start a meditation practice. (I am currently obsessing over insight timer.) You could make plans for creating a sacred space for daily quiet time.
Do something you love.
And if all else fails, remind yourself that today is 24 hours long – this too shall pass.
Now, why are you still reading this? Go make the day a reflection of your inspired way of seeing!!!!
