Love everyone you meet. Promise to make yourself a “no negative zone.” You made it through another year. You were gifted with breath and life. Go outside and touch the Earth, whether there is snow, grass, or water on the ground. Look toward the sky and feel the wonderment of the Universe. Look within your heart and send love to yourself. Send that love out to everyone so that peace on Earth becomes a reality.
Set your intentions today for the next year. If you walk in those intentions for the next 365 days your intentions will come to pass.
Have quiet time today. Encourage your loved ones to do the same. The Eve before the Eve is a good time to reflect on your year. Do not judge yourself so harshly on what was not accomplished. Life is not a race to the finish line. Life is a series of creations on your part. What do you want to create? If you didn’t like what you created this year, then create a different life next year. You are more powerful than you realize.
It’s Black Friday in the United States. “Black Friday” refers to retail stores slashing their prices for the start of the holiday shopping season, which ends on Christmas Day. Stores hope they end the season “in the black,” meaning they have made a profit, rather than “in the red” which means they have lost money.
My picture is red on purpose. Too many consumers end their holiday season in debt aka “in the red.” When those credit card bills arrive in January, it stings. Debt is the worst.
Don’t do that anymore. Talk to your family and make new traditions. Do a secret Santa. One gift per person. I’m getting my kids one gift each. However, I know their gifts will mean something to them because I’m listening for what they really want for Christmas.
Let me know how you are handling holiday gifts and spending this year.
