“Every time a bell rings an angel gets it’s wings.” Anybody remember that line from “It’s a Wonderful Life”? That’s the joy I feel at Christmas. I love Christmas. It’s my favorite time of year because of the happiness people feel, the joy people get from sharing with others. Watching Christmas movies, cruising the neighborhoods to view Christmas lights, watching children in anticipation of Santa, and the true meaning of the Christmas season. The joy that emanates from others and myself energizes me; it fuels my own joy. This is the magic of Christmas.
It’s amazing how much an attitude can influence you. If someone is angry don’t you feel the tension in the room? Isn’t laughter infectious? What kind of emotion/attitude do you want to feel during this time of year? Depression runs high during the Christmas season, often, because expectations don’t fit the reality of the season. Consider this…… what if you fit the reality into your expectations? What if you create a new Christmas reality that you want then see others follow you? What if your reality and your expectations meet in the middle? What if the creation of YOUR NEW Christmas reality really becomes more important than the expectations? Just think…..what if the new reality is better than your expectations? No sacrifice, just different. What infinitesimal possibilities would that bring to you! Gifts you didn’t even expect, I suspect. Quite magical too. It just makes me so excited, because I want everyone to enjoy Christmas like I do.
What do you really want for Christmas? Your two front teeth? No, really, what kind Christmas experience do you want this year? What expectation do you want to let go or modify? In what way do you want to honor the true Christmas spirit? Give it a thought, rather, give it a feel, and see what MAGIC you create.
Happy Christmas everyone!
