Can you believe Christmas Eve is one week from today and I’ve been piddling away my time napping between old movies.
Today I’m playing catch-up – with a very strict schedule which doesn’t allow any free time for movies or naps. I’m exciting about getting out for some Christmas shopping –just hope there’s something left in the stores. I always love browsing around while the intercom plays all the old Christmas standards.
I’m feeling the magic of Christmas and want this week to last forever. You may be facing challenges. You may even have financial problems, health problems, relationship problems. You may be concerned about natural disasters or the state of the world.
Or, like me you may be trying to figure out how to get 13 people seated at a dining room table made for 12. Whatever – park your troubles at the door – they will still be there after Christmas.
But I’m taking today and letting go of all these negatives. Remember, you can come back to these problems later but in this moment just experience the miracle of life in all its glorious messiness. I know of which I speak because one of my chores t day is to clean out the refrigerator, still packed with Thanksgiving leftovers. I’m pretty sure they qualify as science projects by now.
Hold on, cleaning out the refrigerator isn’t a negative – I just keep think how I’ll feel when it’s all empty and shining and ready to begin filling up again!
Take this moment and make a concentrated effort to focus on the positive energy that surrounds you. Think of those small things which have given you the greatest joy. It’s good to be in love, but its magnificent to be in joy.
