Gosh, it's been a while since I last posted a message. I don't know about you, but I've managed to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of Christmas preparations. As a result, all my usual activities have been overshadowed a little, and I realised that I have responded to the melodramas of life - rushed, frenzied, agitated. It seems as though Christmas arrived with no notice - it was weeks away, and then it is here! In reality, it occurs at the same time every year ... so why was I surprised?
It's only today, when everything is done and I am taking some time out to relax, that I remember that I have a choice in how I respond to life; that I can respond differently to the dramas of life - that I can treat them as a melodrama, and pay the price - or I can treat them as a mellow drama.
With practice, I can consciously choose to relax and enjoy life, instead of treating relaxation as something I will do in the future - when everything else is done (which, of course, will never happen).
Have a very relaxing Christmas, and
