During the Christmas season it’s so easy to get caught up in the busyness of the season and to get distracted by issues, obligations and stories. Each of these things affect our health and happiness. They affect how we think and feel about ourselves. They also affect how we interact with others and our ability to contribute. That’s why its important to connect amid the busyness.
Take time to connect with the heart of YOUR Christmas. Reflect on your own heart and what you hold dear. Then, shift your focus to what the festive period means to you:
- What is the heart of Christmas for you?
- How does it support what you value and hold dear?
- How can you use it to express and contribute to others during this time?
I love Matthew West’s song “The Heart of Christmas”. It’s a beautiful song which, for me, highlights the true message of Christmas – love and goodwill. Here’s video version of his music and lyrics, along with some great illustrations of living this message.
Heart Felt Wisdom
Matthew’s song has some wonderful words. Here are a few of them to remind yourself to stay connected in the busyness of the Christmas season :
Where ever you are, come back to the heart …
Live while you can. Cherish the moments …
Make sure your loved ones know it …
Remember love and goodwill is something you can spread all year round. It doesn’t just have to be during Christmas or other seasonal/cultural festivities. So … connect with your heart …spread your love and goodwill … more often.
Take steps today to connect with the heart of your Christmas. Then, share your spirit with others.
