The holiday season is here, and so is all of the joy and all of the chaos. The great part about the holidays is getting together with friends and family, shopping for special gifts, baking and just an all over warm and cozy feeling. The downfall of the holiday season is the triggers of friends and family, shopping in crowded malls, and all the baking. If not handled with care can feel like a pressure cooker. Those same things that give us joy also give us anxiety.
How do we move through the holidays being able to experience the fun and excitement, without fretfulness? The process that I teach has my clients taking the situation or person that’s triggering them on the outside and bringing it inside to see what old beliefs they are buying into so they may be able to shift them.
Holidays are no different than any other day for personal growth. Our egos are just up more because we are busier and we have more anxiety. If we could just slow down and pay attention to how we are feeling and what we are thinking, we could take advantage of the opportunities for growth. Even though things are getting ramped up, we have to slow down.
I find adding a gratitude practice daily helps me to remember what’s important. Yes, of course, I want to get everything done, but I don’t have to get it done like a chicken with its head chopped off, I can get it done with grace and ease. Remembering how grateful I am that I have family and friends, that I have money in the bank to be able to buy them a special gift and to bake them something special. There are so many people in the world that are completely alone without family and have no funds to purchase food for themselves let alone a gift for someone else.
When I start getting caught up and rushing around, this is a good time for me to stop take a deep breath and remember how lucky I am. On that note, I want to tell each and every one of you how grateful I am that you are in my life in one way or another. I am so grateful for all of the connections that I have with friends, family and clients.
I wish you all a beautiful and loving holiday season. Love each other like it is your last day to love, laugh with each other like it may be your last day to laugh and be grateful for all that you have.
