Living Your Potential

Peace and a Present

My Father's Wish List

When I was younger, my siblings and I would ask my father what he wanted for Christmas.  His answer was always the same, "Peace and quiet is all I need."  I'd look at him curiously and say, "But, Dad, you ask for the same thing every year."  Now I tell my father that I understand perfectly what he was after!

Peace and Quiet

Here is an idea for experiencing peace during the next two holiday weeks.  Like a deep breath, this involves letting something in and letting something out.

Let something out.  Let go of something that is distancing you from your peace and quiet.  This might be an expectation, a commitment, a judgment or a resentment you are holding.

Let something in.  Engage in an activity that nourishes your spirit.  Embrace a meaningful holiday tradition.  Give your full presence to someone in your life.  Gift yourself with a quiet night at home, or at least a few moments during the evening.  Sit down and gaze at the holiday lights, whether they are from your Menorah or Christmas tree.  (I'm fortunate to have both in our home.)  Let in the little slivers of peace and notice how it grows.

May you have a peaceful and joyful holiday.
