Wishing you 12 Moments of Christmas! (or Hanukkah, or Kwanzaa… whatever you celebrate!)

Wishing you 12 Moments of Christmas! (or Hanukkah, or Kwanzaa… whatever you celebrate!)

Life is made up of moments. And special moments is what this season is made up of.

This holiday season, my wish for you is to be able to enjoy lots of special moments.

 

I wish you these 12 moments of Christmas.

 

May you enjoy a moment of joy.

Real joy… when your heart is smiling. Notice a moment when you are truly joyful.

 

May you enjoy a moment of laughter.

Catch yourself next time mid-laughter. Milk it. Indulge in it.

 

May you enjoy a moment of gratitude.

There is so much to be grateful for. Choose one thing you are especially grateful for. Inhale it in.

 

May you enjoy a moment of connection.

Allow yourself to fully be in somebody’s presence. Really see them, and let them see you.

 

May you enjoy a moment of peace.

Perhaps in silence, perhaps amidst the noise. Take a breath, and be still. If only for a moment.

 

May you enjoy a moment of love.

Maybe in giving, maybe in receiving. Experience a moment where love exists. Allow it to make your heart sing.

 

May you enjoy a moment of fun.

Whether planned, or unplanned, ensure you bask in a moment of full-on fun. I dare you.

 

May you enjoy a moment of reflection.

‘Tis also the time of year to look back on all that transpired, and look forward to all there is to come.

 

May you enjoy a moment of excitement.

Whether it’s experiencing the season through the eyes of a curious child, or putting yourself back there (I still kick my legs under my sheets every Christmas morning in sheer excitement! You’re never too old!), invite yourself to feel what it’s like to get excited.

 

May you enjoy a moment of giving.

It doesn’t have to be about gifts at this time of year. You can give with your heart through your time, your words, your thoughtful acts, your presence.

 

May you enjoy a moment of presence.

Amidst all that’s going on, take a moment to just be. Notice the world around you, notice your feet planted firmly on the ground, notice your heart pumping.

 

May you enjoy a moment of wonder.

There really is so much to be in awe and wonder of at this time of year. Take a moment to notice and appreciate just how wonderful a feeling of wonder is.

 

I don’t want you to feel any ‘shoulds’ around forcing any of these moments to transpire. I merely invite you to notice and indulge in some of these moments as they arise. Nothing to DO, instead I encourage you to simply BE this holiday season!

 

‘Tis the season for… moments. Experience the special moments. Enjoy the special moments. Make the season count. (Click to tweet it out!)

 

Happy Friday,  and enjoy your holidays!
