say what you want

what do you want?

what do you want in this now moment? what do you want your day to be like? what do you want your week, month, year to be?

do the people in your life know what it is that you truly want? have you told them? what do you want from the people in your life? how do you want the people in your life to support you?

when there is something that you want and the people in your life are involved directly or indirectly you need to communicate to them what it is that you want.

communicating what you want is a gift. a gift to yourself to get what you want. a gift to others because they are then able to give you what you want.

when you do not communicate to the people in your life what you want from them, they have to guess or assume what you want. most likely they are not able to give you what you truly want.

what do you want?

give yourself a gift, and the people in your life a gift, tell them what you want.

live your truth!


Best Gift

This Christmas Season is upon us and among us. Joy and love, busyness and stress. What are you most thankful for? What do you celebrate? What is the best gift that you receive?

I am most thankful for my family and friends! I celebrate and enjoy the relationships that are dear to my heart – near and far! I am grateful for the time I spend with them all during the Christmas Season and throughout the year.

In my giving and receiving I know that there will be gifts, it is a significant part of the Christmas Season, having many traditions of its own. However, for me (and perhaps for you) the giving and receiving that is more filled with love and joy is time shared with family and friends. Parties, decorating the Christmas tree, family traditions, playing games with each other, watching movies, reading books, hot cocoa, building a snowman, sledding, Christmas toasts made with Eggnog, concerts and Christmas programs, baking.

What do you remember the most? What fills you with love, joy and peace? The laughter and smiles from the Christmas parties, the glee and giggles of children playing and creating snow masterpieces, the smell of baking goodies, the crackle of a burning fire, zipping down a hill on a sled, snuggling together to watch a Christmas classic, seeing the pure joy on your loved ones face as you proudly watch the Christmas program, excited whispers in the night of dreams and wishes.

The giving and receiving of time spent together, fill us with love joy and peace!

With the busyness and stress of the season, I am reminded to stay present and aware! Listen to family and friends wholly from your heart – give them your time – don’t allow the tick-tick of a clock to rush you. Enjoy the family and friends you most cherish! Enjoy the traditions and activities with your whole being- body mind and spirit!

Be aware of those around you. I was walking into church and looked directly at my sister and niece without recognizing in my mind who they were! I was so focused on being ‘rushed and needing to accomplish the next thing’, that I was not in the moment. Be aware and be present! Recognize others – family, friends and strangers with a smile from your heart! You will feel peace as you calmly move through your day, and others will feel a warmth fill their heart.

I have received the best gifts of Christmas already this season and I will continue to receive them! Hugs, laughter, smiles, singing, intimate conversations, all the love joy and peace I receive from time spent with family and friends!

With love and gratitude for YOU – Merry Christmas!

Live Your Truth!
