Holiday Season

Whatever your reasoning, this is the season of busy shoppers, kids needing something fun to do, lots of last minute urgency and over-spending and over-eating for most folks.

You could do it differently than most folks….
Spend less on gifts and give more in appreciation.
Focus on where you can give and not on what you will get.
Set an inspiring intention for each gathering of the holidays and follow through.
Give your attention to each individual you meet, family, friends and strangers.
Simplify your diet, your home, your activities.
Take time each day to practice something inspirational.
Each evening before falling asleep, give thanks for all the blessings of the day.
Choose one unhealthy habit to stop or minimize.
Start your new healthy lifestyle during the week after Christmas, rather than in the New Year.
Take a true vacation day, doing nothing except what pleases you and gives you joy.

Everyday is an opportunity to begin again.
Where you fail to meet your goals, simply forgive any judgment and choose again.
Perseverance always succeeds.

Life is a process of doing what is true and undoing what is false.
Life is the exploration of discovering what is meaningful and letting go of what is meaningless.
Life is a university of Truth to learning, remembering and teaching what is True and Real for you.
Life is yours and mine to use for our Holy, healing and healthy purposes.

Let it be our everyday Homework to practice, practice, and practice!!

Blessings to one and all,
Betty Lue
