It's about this time in the season
that we get real.
Real with to-do-lists.
What's going to happen this season
--and what can happen next year--
or live on in a joyful holiday dream.
Get to the heart
of the magic this season,
and say goodbye to the madness.
By setting your intention for the season.
It acts like an umbrella.
Everything on the outside
of your intention
It's not too late to set yours.
If the season all boiled down to
ONE positive thing for you,
what would it be?
For me, it's....
Magical Christmas Giving.
Instilling in my son the absolute joy
it is to give and receive this season.
How fun it is to be a Christmas elf,
and gifting our loved ones
with items made with love.
Which means, I stick to that magic.
Anything that leaves me feeling
or not connected to
Magical Christmas Giving,
gets bumped off my list.
Did I really just bump
off my holiday to-do list?
Holiday liberation at its finest.
Stress less to keep the magic alive.
There's always next year.
Set your intention for this season.
Stick to your holiday magic.
And say by-bye to the rest.
Then go to your to-do-list,
take at least one item
off your to do list.
simply fine and more relaxed.
Wishing you all magic,
with very little madness
these last few holy days.
Keep it simple.
Soak up the magic.
Best holiday gift you can give ever your children.
You got this parenting + holiday thing,
Hi friends, I write from the heart to tell my life story, and the story of those in my neighborhood called life. Research shows that our children's emotional & mental health is contingent upon us parents being able to tell our life story, or "coherent narrative." This is my coherent narrative, my life story in the making, with some of what I love in life too. My goal is to share my life in a way that is real, uplifting & positive- sometimes serious, sometimes fun. In my practice, I inspire parents to empowerment through reclaiming our life stories and learning respectful discipline. My work is my offering to our children- our future. Wishing you all a happy family!
