Tis The Season of Giving

This time of year can take on different meanings for different people but the one common theme is that tis the season of giving. Some people shop until they drop, some give to their favorite charities, others volunteer and some choose to open their hearts, offer compassion, give without conditions and increase their capacity to love.

On the career front the fiscal year is coming to an end, when companies are racing to close there financial records and bosses are reminding you that you have to use your accumulated vacation days. The later of the 3, makes all the challenging times you experienced at work all worthwhile, as you get a chance to take much needed time away. All in all, the holiday season allows us the luxury of spending time with our families and the one person we sometimes neglect ourselves.  I know most of you were not expecting me to say ourselves but we all need to look at our beings, especially our body, mind and spirit as an invaluable investment. It is essential that we take time off and put the necessary steps in place to get ourselves back on track with achieving our goals and ultimately living a better life.

The definition of holiday, is a free day from work that one may spend at leisure, especially a day on which custom or the law dictates a halting of general business activity to commemorate or celebrate a particular event.

What better time than the season of giving to think about you and put time and energy into devising a plan to achieve your personal and career goals. What better time then the holidays to love yourself by spending 20 to 30-minutes per day on writing and visualizing what you want to manifest in 2011.  If you could have whatever you want what would it look and feel like?  I am firm believer that the universe and God gives us everything we want/desire but what we forget to do when we ask, is to include all the details that are so important. For instance, how many times do we talk to our friends and loved ones about getting to the next level and wanting to increase our income? How many of us do not specify by when, maybe within 6 or 12-months and by how much, $5K or $10K, etc.  The more specific you are about your goals the more you up the odds of achieving exactly what you want based on your personalized plan.

So as we get caught in the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, it is my sincere hope that we not just give and expect the tangible but we give the gifts of unconditional love and time especially to ourselves.
