I love this time of year – for me, there’s something magical about the holiday season, despite everything that is happening in the world at large. Maybe it’s because this time of year takes me back to childhood memories – especially to that moment when I got my first glimpse of the Christmas tree my parents always decorated on Christmas Eve. In a child’s eyes, that was pure magic – an ordinary tree that had been sitting in a bucket on our balcony, transformed into a miracle of lights.
Today, allow yourself to feel the magic of the season, even in the middle of all the hustle and bustle. Take some time to just be. Make yourself a cup of cocoa or other favorite holiday beverage, and sit quietly with your cats. Open your heart to the possibilities of the season. And maybe, just maybe, you’ll decide that you have the power to take a little of that magic with you every day, far beyond the holidays.
