Another holiday is around the corner and for me more amazing than the last. It is something that glittery adjectives really cannot do justice. For me, it is never about how much money to spend, how many gifts to buy and how large your red bows are. It is about the celebration of those we love; those we cherish today and not the memories of the past and ones missed. They are spiritually content only when we are. It is about all of you and what we can do to assure overwhelming beauty this season. And though not important, our financial needs are met too when it is time…when it is our time.
What does that mean?
When you have built a reputation of love and respect, when you are grateful and thankful for that gratitude, when you can smile and laugh at yourself, when you can dedicate yourself to positive consistency in your talents, when you can bring your passion to the hearts of others, when you can listen to those sincere in your efforts, you will flourish ahead rather than stepping back, when you can block negativity that only adds drama, and when you can teach others to do the same. When you can give just a little more each day, minute or even moment. And most of all, when you can be truly proud of your never-ending accomplishments towards creating a better you. We really only have one life to get it right.
I guess then it is time…a time for overwhelming happiness and peace that you may have never known before. A time for unconditional love and affection. The wealth of life known in a way you cannot comprehend.
And then your home on Christmas or whatever holiday you celebrate is filled with blessed light and breathtaking awe, elegance once forgotten, the Norman Rockwell table of food, friends, family you once laughed at; thinking it a fantasy or someone else s dream.
A dream of grace and miracle that finally becomes your own.
