Wake Up Call! – Celebrate the Spirit of the Holidays


Celebrate something about the spirit of the holidays!

Watching my nephews open their Christmas gifts is one of my great holiday joys! The other is mindfully inviting myself to be aware of the essence of the holiday spirit in other people – the spirit that inspires, touches, nourishes or challenges me.

In choosing to do this I unwittingly find myself surrounded by unexpected gifts!

As I name and appreciate something in another person that gives new life to some part of the holiday spirit I’m grateful for people whose lives are connected with mine in some small or significant way.

The result is that I’m left inviting myself to be aware and awake to what part of the holiday spirit I’d like my life to reflect! So what will you and I choose to celebrate about the holiday spirit this year?


  • Mindfully invite yourself to be aware of the essence of the holiday spirit
  • Appreciate how it is made known to you in the lives of others

Notice how some new appreciation of the spirit of the holidays enriches your life.
