How to Create Space for the Holidays

Aloha, creative souls! So, I've been taking LOTS of breaks from the social media, as of late, especially since all of the hoopla surrounding the presidential election.

I mean, I had to. For my own sanity.

Did you hear? Someone actually called me the "c" word for mentioning my stance on racism (my stance, being that I will not tolerate it). *control-alt-delete* So, long sucka! That was the first time I've ever had to 'unfriend' a long-time friend on Facebook.

Anywaaaaays...

I also kind of had to take a break from all of the recent cyber sales over Thanksgiving Day weekend...oh my gosh, internet people (although, I do admit I have been guilty of this in the past). You know how in the old-school days, when you would walk out to your mailbox to check your mail, and when you opened it, ALL of the junk mail would just kind of spill out haphazardly into your hands?

Well, that's kind of what my email inbox was like, except it was my brain that was spilling haphazardly out of my ears. SO much information.

And then, all of the planning for the holidays. The shopping, the dinner parties, the travelling, the this, the that, and the other thing.

So, I've been thinking...why do we do this to ourselves? It really doesn't have to be so busy, busy, busy. Really it doesn't.

If you're willing to play, I'd love to encourage you to, simply, simplify ONE area of your life that might need some breathing space. Remember, it's perfectly okay to gracefully say, "No" to the things that don't resonate with you anymore.

Honor down-time. Less is more. Quality over quantity.

Honor this season of slowing down, turning inward, reflecting, and just being.

(And, of course, I have to add this one to the mix): 

Honor your creative spirit. Being creative is the best way to sloooooow down time. It's like time almost stops, when you get creative, doesn't it?

So, if you feel like your holiday nerves are getting to you, here are some of my fave ways to take that stress factor down a couple of notches:

1) My fave go-to: be like a hermit and do this ONE simple thing to calm the {bleep} down

2) Throw your camera phone out the window and learn some old-school camera hacks

3) Grab a bottle of wine, chill with your BFF's, and dream a little dream

AS FOR ME, I PROMISED MYSELF TO FINISH 2016 WITH LOTS OF SMOOCHY KISSES FROM THE BEACH BABE AND TO EASE INTO 2017 WITH GRACE.

WHAT WILL YOU DO TO GIFT YOURSELF WITH QUIET SPACE THIS SEASON? LET ME KNOW IN THE COMMENTS BELOW.

are you ready to drop secret love bombs?

love is the new religion - quote - brian piergrossi - author life coach spiritual teacher - desiree east I stumbled upon this gem recently, after getting side tracked from a link that my mother-in-law shared to me the other day  (Thanks Lynne!). I thought it was worth a share, and I hope it brightens your week. Welcome to the changing season, sending lots of love your way...

On the surface of the world right now there is war and Violence and things seem dark But calmly and quietly, at the same time, something else is happening underground An inner revolution is taking place and certain individuals are being called to a higher light It is a silent revolution From the inside out From the ground up

You won’t see us on the T.V. You won’t read about us in the newspaper You won’t hear about us on the radio

We don’t seek any glory We don’t wear any uniform We come in all shapes and sizes Colors and styles

Most of us work anonymously We are quietly working behind the scenes in every country and culture of the world Cities big and small, mountains and valleys, in farms and villages, tribes and remote islands

You could pass by one of us on the street and not even notice We go undercover We remain behind the scenes It is of no concern to us who takes the final credit But simply that the work gets done

Occasionally we spot each other in the street We give a quiet nod and continue on our way so no one will notice.

During the day many of us pretend we have normal jobs But behind the false storefront, at night is where the real work takes place

Some call us the ‘Conscious Army’ We are slowly creating a new world with the power of our minds and hearts We follow, with passion and joy Our orders from the Central Command The Spiritual Intelligence Agency

We are dropping soft, secret love bombs when no one is looking: Poems Hugs Music Photography Movies Kind words Smiles Meditation and prayer Dance Social activism Blogs Random acts of kindness

Our work is slow and meticulous Like the formation of mountains It is not even visible at first glance And yet with it entire tectonic plates shall be moved in the centuries to come

Love is the new religion of the 21st century

You don’t have to be a highly educated person Or have any exceptional knowledge to understand it It comes from the intelligence of the heart Embedded in the timeless evolutionary pulse of all human beings

Be the change you want to see in the world Nobody else can do it for you

We are now recruiting Perhaps you will join us Or already have. All are welcome… The door is open

~ Brian Piergrossi, (from the book The Big Glow)
