If you find yourself sharing your gift in places and with people, that do not seem to want it, don’t continue to beat your head up against the wall. Release them. Let them have their own journey.
Life is too short to convince people to be aware of who you are and the value that you bring.
Love yourself enough to remove yourself from any situation where you are constantly making someone a priority who has made you an option. The lips of the wise are sealed to those who refuse to hear and are comfortable being ignorant. Begin to carve out a place for yourself in life to do the work that you are called to do, for those who are ready to receive it. Your gifts and time are precious. Take care to nurture and develop them. Only in this way can you live a life that is purposeful, meaningful and free of frustration. You are a gift to the world. You deserve to be recognized for who you are. You have GREATNESS within you!
It’s true, Christmas can feel like a lot of work, particularly for mothers. But when you look back on all the Christmases in your life, you’ll find you’ve created family traditions and lasting memories. Those memories, good and bad, are really what help to keep a family together over the long haul. ~Caroline Kennedy
I hope everyone who celebrated had a wonderful Christmas, mine was extra special because I had both of my girls at home for the Holidays, the first in 2 years. We cooked, watched movies, ate, drank and was Merry. As we gathered around the table there was an overwhelming feeling of happiness with a mixture of apprehension that the day would soon be over we’d all be headed our separate ways, I would be back to work and my daughters back to respective schools.
As people around the world celebrate the birth of Christ today, may each of us, regardless of our religious perspective, remember that we individually and collectively can bring the ultimate gifts of Christmas ~ peace, hope, joy and love into our own lives, as well as the lives of others.
Today is Christmas. Instead of just giving and receiving gifts, determine to be a gift in someone’s life. Your presence can lift another’s spirit, energize with joy and remind them that their life, regardless of the circumstances, is a blessing. Be the gift today and make a difference in the lives of others. Merry Christmas to you and yours from my home to yours!!
It is the little things in life which often bring us the greatest pleasure and joy, and little things can have a tremendous power all of their own. It could be a small kindness, or the smile on a child’s face, the wag of a dog’s tail, or a stunning sunset. These are the things that life is made of.

This year has been a roller coaster of events with one cart bumping the other! Yesterday I was mesmerised by the thick Fog that hovered over us all day. While watching the heavy Mist roll by my office window I reflected on this past year, how quickly it flew by, I mean Christmas is literally just around the corner now, something I was not ready for, Christmas seem to come more quickly each year. I also reflected on all we had to not just face but embrace this past year. Certain things you can’t brush off you have to embrace and move on.
