What is "Holiday Spirit"?

“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart.” – Helen Keller

Little Gems of Wisdom & Fun from Mary Lynn Ziemer

We often hear phrases like "holiday spirit" or "the magic of the holidays". But, what is it, actually?

There are those special moments around the holidays where we feel that warmth of love, where people smile at each other more often, or are perhaps a little bit kinder, more generous, and more loving. It's that magic of coming together with family or friends, or that feeling when we've all exhaled from the planning or preparing, and get to sit back and enjoy the feelings of joy, peace, and calm. It's truly magical!

So, how can we replicate that "magical" feeling or "spirit" when the holidays have passed? How can we have it every day of our life? Start by simply asking yourself this...

“How far can my imagination take me?”

What do you want to create for yourself and others now and in the coming year?

Remember that the foundation for a truly joyful, happy, and fun-filled life comes from radiating love from your very core. It comes from feeling this love for yourself, and sending it out to everyone and everything around you. When you do this, those special Holiday feelings of peace, calm and magic fall into place. The true wonders and joy of the season begin to unfold, and you can begin to create a life beyond what you ever imagined possible.

Here’s an easy way to begin.

Take some time to be quiet and calm today and go within. Take your mind to that magical place where you can start dreaming about what you would truly love to have in your life today. Feel the joy of it!

Stop and ask yourself, “What does my heart truly desire?” Say the answer out loud and write it down. Don’t let your current reality get in the way. Just begin to be honest and open to a new reality that says everything is possible. Why?

Because, the biggest thing that stops us from having what we desire is that we rarely go beyond what we think is possible. We seldom take our imagination beyond the reality of our current experiences and what we believe is possible. But, when we have these "realistic" (or "limited") wishes, we live a realistic and limited life.

This will continue to be the case until we let our imagination run free. Then, something amazing begins to happen! We take our lives to another level, beyond what we have ever thought possible.

This is the time of year to truly unleash your imagination! It’s the time of year to tap into the creative power you have by knowing (through love, gratitude and fun) that you can create a life that you love.

It's time to get into the "holiday spirit" and have some good old fashion child-like fun today. Be the real you, come out of hiding, and tell yourself what you want your life to look like as you go into the New Year. Feel the love of the season, be grateful for all that you have right now, and during this blessed time of year...begin to Dream Big!

Have an absolutely magical week full of love, gratitude and fun, fun, FUN!
