Journal Your Christmas, Day 4
Text from today's page: "I feel incredibly blessed to have close-to-perfect Christmases nearly every year. Sure there are elements I’d modify if I could, but for me, it’s all about everyone being happy, and since everyone’s got a different set of wishes & dreams, we all have to bend and flex a bit. So, if I could wave a magic wand and create a perfect holiday season, here’s what I’d do: (1) all citizens of the planet would know security, safety, and love (2) everyone would think about the consequences of their actions, and actively avoid intentionally causing injury and (3) people would have the capacity to reflect on the blessings in their lives and feel a sense of gratitude and appreciation. No more rushing around thoughtlessly, caught up in our own pitiful concerns. No more people fearing for their lives. No more heartache and anguish, even if it’s just suspended for a few days a year. Yeah, if I’m going to envision the perfect Christmas, I’m going to dream big & include the whole planet!"
I do feel unbelievably blessed to have such magnificent Christmases ... and people who know me know that I am the kind of person who "makes things happen," so I believe that if I want something to be better, it's my job to work to improve it...which is why I kind of struggle with these "dream big" kinds of questions. So, I decided to dream REALLY big this time around. Can you blame me for wanting to share my experience of the holidays with the whole wide world?
