They’ve not always felt magical, fun, beautiful, or peaceful to us and we SO wanted them to be...
They’re ‘supposed’ to be.
A lot of the time they have felt hectic, chaotic, obligatory.
They tend to push buttons and bring up pain and hurt from the past.
There is SO much SHIT to get done you just never will
If you don’t...
You’ll ruin Christmas
F O R E V E R
Especially your very precious littles!
(Fuckin’ Elf on the Shelf!)
And you’ve gotta be here AND there AT THE same time
How do you EVER choose between them??
Things are just awkward and uncomfortable around them
We’d rather stay snuggled up in our house; but maybe not...
It really has me missing my grandma...and I’d rather not make it worse
You know this isn’t really true.
You know REALLY the best way to have a truly beautiful, memorable holiday is to relax, have fun, laugh, sing, sit by the tree in the dark with the lights on and enjoy its serenity and magic.
You know that REALLY you, relaxed, happy, and joyful is best for EVERYONE.
You know that this is truly the MOST important detail...
Because then you can be PRESENT~
In your pain and discomfort (to love and attend to it and you)
You know that really
Is what makes every DAY work...and it sure as FUCK applies in life’s most crazy moments...the everyday moments are practice for the crazy times.

That’s all the more I’m sayin’.
Let’s make and do, BE, this year differently.
We begin this spiritual online holiday retreat December 1.
