3 Things to Focus on This Holiday Season
Decide Who Lights You Up
Family is decided by you, not your bloodline. Maybe it’s who you married into, or maybe it’s a friendship circle. There was a big time in our lives when we couldn’t embrace seeing loved ones in person. Now we have the opportunity to realize how much you enjoy the people you’re around and take an inventory on how they make you feel.
Your presence with others is a gift that can’t be purchased at Target on Black Friday. We used to think we needed to show up to others with a bottle of wine, flowers, or a special gift. But if you give your presence and are fully there, that outweighs any physical object you could give anyone. Your presence allows people to feel seen, heard, and loved because you make them feel like they matter.
Decide to carry the joy that you experience inside to every single interaction. Your expression of joy is how you’re going to inspire people. We can always bring a little bit more joy no matter where we’re at in life or how we feel. Always be that person who can find the silver lining and allow people to relax. You don’t need to look for joy, you create it.

Have you ever wanted to take a vacation from your own thoughts? 🏖️
Wonder what would happen if the chatterbox inside your head went silent?
I’m sure you’ve had this happen at some point in your life. Suddenly, you forgot about time… You forgot about all the to-dos… You were just there, engrossed in the beauty around you of whatever moment you were experiencing.
Those are the magical moments of life.
Most of us don’t experience them often enough. Instead, our lives move in the direction of our dominant thoughts, and we end up worried, overwhelmed, and stressed out.
But you can actually train yourself to be in the present moment whenever you want. You can live a life of peace and calmness. You can experience the miracles all around you and flow with life instead of trying to control it.
That’s why we can’t wait to teach you our techniques to get out of your own head and into the present moment during the LIVE Mindfulness & Presence masterclass.
