I still believe in Santa. To me it is just in the form of the great and powerful universe. (or God, if that's your thing) And it is with us year round.
So, no matter your age, still make your wishes, believe your dreams, and don't settle for anything less than what your true heart desires.
I remember a time like that. When I was a kid. I think most of us can remember being footloose and fancyfree, as children. Before we knew any different than to care what people thought. When your favorite popsicle flavor made your week, not because it was a popular choice, right, or wrong, or because your friends chose it, but because it was what you really wanted.
Time sometimes makes us lose sight of these things.
My goal this year is to be more in tune with my inner self.
I want to appreciate all that I have brought into my life, intentional, or not, because I have learned from each and every choice I have made.
I want my heart to smile, so the rest of me can follow suit. I want my choices to be mine.
Whether this is a ridiculously expensive coffee maker, new shoes...a cell phone you don't think you can afford, a new puppy, or love....I hope everyone gets what they most desire this this year, not because it is right or wrong, because you want it.
"So in your Christmas prayers this year Alfie asked me to ask you to say a prayer for the wind, and the water, and the wood, and those that live there too..."
This video from the Muppets Christmas (John Denver) is by far my favorite childhood Christmas story and sums up my post perfectly.
