It started a couple of weeks ago; it will grow in intensity, and then lay dormant for eleven months. What I’m talking about is the emotional and physical energy of the holiday season. Regardless of your faith it’s almost impossible to escape the energy shift that happens this time of year.
The season evokes many feeling inside of us, the desire to please others, the want to be included and acknowledged, and hope for proof those around us really know who we are. It’s easy to get caught up in the swirl to please, to say yes, to do exactly what you have done year after year.
Ask yourself, how do your decisions make you feel? Are the expectations you have on others and the ones they have on you realistic? Do the people you are choosing to surround yourself with raise or lower your internal flame? In the mad rush of the season, pause and consider what you want to create. (Hint: there is no wrong answer, only your answer.)
