Happy Holiday Season

Thursday, December 21, 2017

 

The final run up to Christmas is just what we’ve come to expect: Summer has arrived with a furnace blast, we’re in a mad rush to get everything finished in time for the big day and if things can go wrong they have. If we’re lucky enough to get time to reflect it can be easy to wonder: Does Christmas herald a time of fellowship, good cheer, love and family – or is it a commercial orgy of anxiety, consumption and manic stress?

It’s like most things in life – it all depends on how we look at it. What we choose to focus on. Yes, this time of year can be a “crazy busy’ rush to get everything done. Stress, struggle strain. Or it can be a satisfying time of putting a full stop on the year, tidying up loose ends, being grateful for the good things that have happened and the people who have enriched our lives.

I must admit, there were times in years past when the greenie, pinko whinger in me ranted about the “capitalist excess” the fake “peace on earth” and the silly stress. But I’ve learned to get over myself and focus on the wonderful elements of Christmas: the commencement of Summer break, celebrations with family and friends, time to spend on gratitude, catching up and rest. I know of many friends and acquaintances who are going through awful health and life challenges at the moment. My heart goes out to you and I wish you all the very best – luck, health and love.
Also, a huge thank you to the many people who have supported, worked with and encouraged myself and iKi.
There are so many wonderful people in my world. Thank you.

Best wishes to everyone for the New Year - the time to celebrate that most fantastic of all human abilities – HOPE.



Next year will bring endings, as well as beginnings. No doubt 2018 will have its’ challenges and some bad things will happen. That’s life and always has been, but opportunities will arise, and great things will happen as well. Things will happen that are beyond our control - but our attitude and actions will determine what comes next.

I’ve learned to regularly remind myself how very fortunate we are to live in this place and time. Even 20 years ago, many health conditions were untreatable that are now routinely beaten. Opportunities are endless and most of us live in safety and comfort. We can find much to complain about if we try but our system works, most of the time. We live in a crazy world and some Aussies have it tough, but speaking for myself, I think most of us are SO lucky.

And we have hope.

I’m taking a break and will return in mid January. See you next year.

Happy hopeful holiday,
Kim.
