WHAT I WANT THIS CHRISTMAS



Merry Christmas, Everyone!

One question I have been asked a lot in the last few days is what I want for Christmas. 

What I want isn't expensive, out of stock, nor hard to deliver. In this most magical, mysterious, spiritual season, I want one thing...

FOR ALL OF US TO START TREATING OURSELVES AND EACH OTHER BETTER.

We are all very unique, with our own special talents, our own unique points of view---our own unique way of understanding this life we are all trying to live. 

We are all special, wonderful, amazing, individuals. So why are we so hard on ourselves and others? Why do we try to tear down what isn't exactly like us? Why can't we appreciate, value our own uniqueness?

Maybe if we could see how wonderful we really are, accept it, and revel in the glory of who we are, then maybe we would be able to appreciate and value the uniqueness in others. 

My mother use to tell me that there is no way you can love others until you love yourself. She was an amazing woman. Listen to her! 

Take a good look at yourself and find something to love. Maybe the eleventh commandment should have read: Love yourself as I have loved you--- so you can love another.

It's a simple gift but it has the power to change our world. 


Hugs to all,
Nancy C. Weeks
