The Gift of Receiving

Once again, t'is the season. There's often an undercurrent (or more) during this season of giving. Many people feel anxious, overwhelmed, or depleted by the holidays. The pressure to throw the perfect party, give the right gift, and always be "on" can be a drain.

A lesson I have tried to learn that comes in handy at this time of year is about receiving versus giving. Allowing yourself to welcome gifts, attention, assistance, compliments, and joy without the pressure of giving enables you to fully appreciate what is being given to you. In turn, you will feel more freedom in your giving to someone else.

Enjoy the giving and receiving this holiday season!
