Holidays expand us with a change of environment, a change of routines, and an opportunity for experiences that will broaden our minds simply because they are out of the ordinary.
Doing this with people you love takes it to another level entirely, as we expand our minds and widen our lives while we are supported in a base of unconditional love. All these experiences add up … joined together they give us a secure base from which to launch ourselves into life.
Spending time together in a new environment is an opportunity for taking notice of the small spots between the big events. How do we, personally, cope with (insert an appropriate holiday challenge)? And how do we, personally, support each other as we all attempt to cope with said holiday challenge? The interactions between us are where the magic lives. It’s where we build our basis of unconditional love and reinforce our connections. It’s where we encounter another lesson on the art of resilience.
Holidays are a golden opportunity to reset. To try a new way of being and of passing our time. How often do we have a great time and want to bring that home with us? Relaxed, happy, holiday self is allowed to show up at home too.
What is your way of being that you like better when you are on holiday? What if you showed up as your whole holiday self in your ‘real’ life? How much of a difference would that make?
After all, we’re human beings, not human doings.
Time spent in expansion is never wasted. And holidays will give us that in spades. How will your family spend their holidays this summer?
