As always, I find it unbelievable that another month has passed so quickly, and in fact, here we are on Christmas Eve!
In the last blog, I was preparing to deliver a relaxing and restoring workshop to prepare us for the rushing around that was about to begin; this was my November challenge. Thanks to everyone who came along, and for the lovely feedback you all gave – I enjoyed teaching the day hugely, and I couldn’t have hoped for a better response!
So we are about to enter the festive season, and if we are lucky, we have chance to take a couple of days off work to spend some time with loved ones. As I’ve been preparing over the last few weeks, dashing around, worrying whether I have enough food for everyone, enough presents for everyone, enough space for everyone, I have tried to also spend some time thinking about what really matters. What I wish for you all is this:
Wishing you all peace, space and time to stop for a while during this festive season.
I wish for you the chance to pause and reflect, and to spend a little bit of time thinking about the Christmas story – the story of a Middle Eastern couple making a long and difficult journey across a strange land, on foot, desperately seeking shelter, and a safe place to sleep. A familiar story? A story for today.
You don’t need to be a Christian to spare a thought or a wish for those who have less; just Human. We are all Mankind – aren’t we? Is Man kind? I hope so. So as you stop and pause, and make time to share with family and friends, give thanks for what you have, because someone else is desperately praying for that which you take for granted.
May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope that you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you’re wonderful, and don’t forget to make some art. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, that you surprise yourself.
You are enough. You have enough.
Love and Light to you all.
