On behalf of everyone here at my firm, I want to wish all of those to whom we are connected a wonderful, heartwarming season.
Whether this is a powerfully spiritual time for you (or not), a struggling season for you (or not), a joyful time for you (or not) my hope is that you give yourself the gift of time to exhale and just be:
- The Danish term, “hygge” means a sense of coziness and comfort that brings on a feeling of contentment and wellbeing. I invite you to find ways to up your cozy game.
- The Icelandic tradition of jolabokaflod is the giving and unwrapping of new books on Christmas Eve, cozying up with loved ones, and reading throughout the evening (preferably with lots of chocolate). I invite you to find ways to embrace simple, be-present pleasures.
Whether it is Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa or a blend you celebrate, it is no surprise that these are all found during a winter month: a month during which we trust that miracles do abound, that beautiful things are being seeded, that hibernation nourishes us, that light does spring in the darkness.
I am an Advent-and-Christmas-girl and this I know deep in my cells: when it seems like nothing is happening, everything is being worked out. This is the miracle. And I encourage each of us to look for the miracles. They are there.
