Give with your Heart

The holiday season is a time of meeting and greeting, feasting and drinking, buying and spending!  We stress over purchasing that perfect gift, decisions between pink or green, small or medium, merino wool or cashmere, UGGs or Hunter!  Decisions, decisions...more decisions.   Our inbox is blasted with emails - "Final Day for 40% off," "Buy one, get second half off," "Take an extra 30% off and Free Shipping."  Such temptations!  Amex and MasterCard must be doing a happy dance. I was surprised to see After-Christmas sales emails on Christmas Day which enabled you to purchase online on Christmas Day for the new low, discounted price!   Shopaholics must love what technology/Internet has done to feed their passion.

Christmas and the holidays have become so commercialized. We get all worked up with trying to give the best gift that will please those close to us, that we forget that the gift is just a token.  It is the feelings that we give the present with that is the true gift. The new pair of UGGs will make her happy for a month, maybe a few weeks or maybe just a couple of days.  However, it is the warmth, good vibrations and the feelings from the bottom of your heart with which you give the gift that will leave an impression on her soul.

During this beautiful season, we receive email greetings and cards from so many people, sometimes people whom we never hear from during the year, old friends, distant relatives, insurance agents, department stores...  Every time you see the words "we wish you joy and peace," or "we wish you happiness, " read the greeting slowly, process it as an affirmation - affirm to yourself that you are JOYFUL and PEACEFUL, you are HAPPY and 2011 is going to be A VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR. 

Sending you warm greetings with lots of love from my heart for healthy, happy holidays!
