Whatever you're doing today...
Perhaps you could take a moment to pause..
Light a candle... (you might be doing that anyway)
And create an intention...
And remind yourself of your story.
I searched for a new story about light. We're all celebrating it, each in our own way.
But I kept coming back to the strongest of images.
The children's faces as they light the candles for Chanukah.
Counting Christmas trees as we drove through a cold and blustery Dublin night.
The candles lit in the church where I heard my first mid-night mass.
The Chanukah presents placed lovingly around the table set for Friday-night-dinner.
And I realized that I don't need a new story.
This is my story of light.
This is my holiday story.
And it is a story of gratitude.
Gratitude for those moments and memories.
And immense gratitude to the wonderful people in my life; family, friends, clients, colleagues.
With thanksgiving just passed and the holidays coming soon, this is the perfect time to hold that magical space for story.
To be truly thankful for the blessings of stories past, present and future; the memories, the relationships which are expressed through story and become your reality. Take a moment to tell that story!
I can't wait to see what story awaits us in 2013!
What story are you creating during this holiday season?
