To me, Christmas is about embracing the festive season and making it magical. Sharing this wonderful occasion with family and friends, being grateful for all that is wonderful in our lives and celebrating the gift of love.
Take a moment to look into your heart and as you do, let your mind wander back over the year to some of the amazing moments you've experienced; triumphs; joyous occasions when life surprised you; unexpected encounters; places you've travelled; friendships that have become important to you; and on. And recognise that these moments have profoundly shaped your year and led to where you are now.
Christmas doesn't have to be about dwelling on what may be lacking in our lives. If we take the time to look at all the wonderful things we have now, in this moment, we naturally feel a sense of contentment and importantly, gratitude.
Remember there are endless possibilities that lay before you in the year ahead - and you have the ability to create the life that is true to your heart.
I'd like to take this opportunity to say Merry Christmas; may your festive season be filled with wondrous moments, meaningful connections, love, laughter and happiness.
