The holiday season has begun! I am very grateful that the darkness that characterizes this time of year is interrupted by light - on trees, in fire places, and on the faces of friends and family. It's a time of year filled with celebrations- which can be both invigorating and overwhelming.
I think it's a great time of year to settle in - to make time for the things that ground you and make you feel connected. Which is often hard with holidays, travel, expectations, and more. But choosing one thing per day or a few things per week that fill us up with light can help during this season when we're expected to share so much with others.
So in addition to spreading cheer and generosity and gratitude, be sure to fill your own cup - through your recently-developed gratitude practice, a yoga class, gathering with friends, a nap by the fire, or whatever else brings you joy. Once your cup is full, it will be a gift to share with others!
I hope your holiday season is full of light and warmth.
