The holidays bring up many different things depending on your life story. What do the holidays bring up for you?
Now think of that a different way, what are you bringing to the holidays? That shifts the perspective and energy. I like both perspectives, and cherish our ability to bring the traditions we want, and create new ones that match who we are today, who we are becoming.
So I am going to make a request – and if a life coach ever challenges you or makes a request you always have three options: Yes, no, or make a counter offer. Take 3 minutes, sit back in your chair, turn off any distractions, and set your intention for this holiday season.
Some examples: “I will find something to celebrate in each family member by Christmas day.” Or “I will make it to the dinner table on Christmas Eve hungry.” Or maybe “I will let myself cry if I feel like crying, and laugh until I snort if I feel it coming on!”
Whatever it is for you – whatever calls you out this holiday, bring it. Santa will still bring you presents.
Share your intention or make me a counter offer in the comment section below.
Merry Christmas to all, and to all an intentional holiday!
