Deciding what to say yes and no to


Christmas lights

Figuring out how you want to feel this season is a way to find out what to say no or yes to.

I want to feel wonder and connection this season. So looking at the lights, going to Christmas eve service, singing in the choir, going to the various social things are yes for me. Baking and decorating aren’t big on my list this year.

For some it may be stillness and silence. Saying no to social obligations and creating extra quiet time is on their list.

For others the holiday season is all about creativity – so they love spending time making, decorating, taking pictures and wrapping presents.

Perhaps this year you want to feel giving and generous so you concentrate on picking presents and volunteering.

How do you long to feel this December?
