This Newsletter comes with my best wishes for your personal Christmas.
May you and your families enjoy the Spirit of the Season with your family, friends and loved one’s.
This is a time when we cherish traditions and perhaps make new ones as family constellations change. For some of us it is a joyful and merry time, for others it might be sad and painful because of the loss of a loved one who’s place remains empty.
I hope you did not drown in stressful Christmas preparations or at least now find the time to connect with your family or reconnect with yourself.
Christmas brings us back to the time when we were children. For some of us it is a memory of wonders, magic, special songs, special scents, warmth, love and hugs. For others it is a memory of lack, arguments, exclusion, sadness and tears.
No matter what Christmas means for you – no matter to which religion, nationality or belief system you belong – in one point Christmas seems to be the same for all of us. It is the time of year when most families come together and it reminds us that we are all part of a family with all the pleasant or unpleasant that might come along with it.
If you are one of the lucky ones who celebrate this family gathering with love and joy, with warmth and passion – please be aware that this is nothing to be taken for granted. It is a gift, a blessing and something we should cherish and be grateful for.
If you are one of the unlucky ones who have to endure the same painful, boring or uncomfortable “scenario” as every year – please be aware that your situation now might be a gift, too. A gift that – if you can accept it – might be the first step to giving yourself the chance to look at all this from a different perspective, to let go and to celebrate next Christmas in a different way.
Whatever is going on in the “outer” world, may the spirit of Christmas touch your souls and open them up. May love and understanding find a way to all who need it and may peace come to rest in your hearts.
Merry Christmas and all the best for a healthy, happy and peaceful 2017
