It's the happiest time of year! Unless it's not. I had a fantastic conversation with Life Transformation Strategist Cristina Jolly about how to handle this time of year when you don't exactly FEEL happy. Christina is the host of the Believe for Bigger Podcast, and a life coach who helps women who struggle with identity, lack of confidence and helps them embrace their worth, step into boldness and operate in their gifts with confidence. We spoke about the larger topics of finding and cultivating gratitude, and being open to change and things looking different than they have in the past. We also talked about some more tactical tips like how to successfully ask for the help you need, and how to have productive conversations with family. After we recorded this episode I've been having some additional thoughts about the holidays that I'm feeling called to share. I think sometimes we can feel down during the holidays because we lost sight of WHY we have the holidays. Christmas isn't JUST about presents, and cookies, and Santa. It's not JUST about expectations, and family stress, and drama, and the like. It's about Jesus. Christmas is about God coming to earth in the form of Jesus to set in motion the most important fulfillment of God's prophecy. It's about the birth of the Savior of the world, the Savior sent just for YOU and just for ME. It's true, the holidays can feel stressful, but in my experience, I ONLY feel stress if I've veered from the truth of the Christmas. If we keep Jesus front and center my stress is removed, my kids are full of gratitude, my husband is calm, and no matter what goes awry it really doesn't phase us because what is TRULY important is eternal and unchanging. We talk a lot about cultivating gratitude in this episode, but truly my gratitude is for Christ, for His birth and later His sacrifice, and for His hand on my life. Friend, this Christmas I'm praying for peace in your heart and mind and I'm praying that if you don't yet know the peace of Jesus, that this Christmas season it is revealed to you. XOXO Tara PS.
