What if ….
we asked ourselves…
How can Christmas time, from now until New Year’s, be magical for me?
What if you paused for several moments and thought about Christmas?
Might this cross your mind:
Okay, seriously, all this chaos? All this planning? Who’s having dinner what night?
What do you mean you can’t come? How can it be Christmas without snow? Did I get the kids equal amount of gifts? Oh, damn the baking… I have to get to that!
Okay, It’s Christmas time. We don’t say those things out loud.
Well, some people do, or how else would I know this?
But what if…
What if the whole month had many peaceful moments?
What if you spent more time with hot chocolate by the fire than with coffee at the mall?
What if you looked at the ‘traditions’ in your family and weighed out their value?
Do some weigh really heavy… like tipping the scale so far that anything placed on the other side flew off so fast and so far it would land in the North Pole?
Can you let any of the weighty items go?
Can you choose to have more of the things you love?
What if you chose to notice the magic?
What if you really could feel the magic?
What if, instead of sitting up late doing articles and blog posts and links and computer stuff,
I did a poem
all over the page?
and noticed the magic?
