My holiday greetings will be a bit different that the Holiday emails we are all receiving this time of year. 

Most of us crave this time of year because we pause and and reflect on our accomplishments. The appreciation piece is difficult sometimes, because we live in a prosperous area of the country that in many ways, seems at times, immune to suffering.

Sometimes I find it easier to connect with the Holiday Season when I hear, see, or experience what others have experienced and reminds me what I truly have!   Take a few moments to watch Dan Caro’s story.  This video really hit home and brought me to a grounded state that I want to be in more often.  It widens the gap and lengthens the pause of experiencing a real compassion and gratitude for the experiences of others and temporarily removing the ‘me’ from the equation. 

As I spend time with my young family over the holidays, my sense of appreciation and being present for them is expanded after watching Dan’s story.  Let me know what you think.

Enjoy your holidays!
