Christmas wishes

In Uncategorized on December 25, 2011 at 8:05 pm

I don’t really celebrate Christmas – it’s still a relatively new holiday for me, but I have found over the last several years that it is increasingly a time for me to check in, take stock, and make (more) space for gratitude in my life.

Today, after a really heart filling morning with family, I like I’m overflowing with thanks and gratitude for the family and friends in my life. A hug from my older daughter, hearing my little one sing Florence and the Machine, or a little dancing by the tree with my wife to a tune we only hear in our heads – all these things and more have made me tear up today because I’m just so damn happy and in love with life and the people I have the honor to be with.

And, I want this joy and happiness for everyone. May all beings be happy, may all being be safe and healthy, and may all beings have a measure of ease in their lives.
