The Spirit of Christmas

“For a moment our lives met and our souls touched.”

Oscar Wilde

I love watching movies at Christmas. One of my favourite Christmas stories is ‘A Christmas Carol’ by Charles Dickens. I especially love the movie version with Sir Patrick Stewart.

This story reminds me of Spirit of Christmas Past, Present and Future.

Christmas is a wonderful time for reflection, time to be fully present with family and friends and an opportunity to dream, and set  intentions for the New Year.

My reflections for 2010 take me around the world to the places I’ve been honoured to visit and all the wonderful people who have touched my life a long the way.

I remember having a broken English/German conversation over dinner with a wonderful woman and her husband in Berlin. Neither of us could speak the other person’s language except for a few words, yet we were able to have a wonderful animated conversation over dinner. I left that restaurant feeling very blessed to have met them.

Life is a transition and we’re in constant flow. People come in and out of our lives. They touch us for a brief moment or stay for a while, it’s ever flowing. Christmas is a time to celebrate this flow.

I have enormous gratitude and love for everyone I have met during 2010, who have shared their time and wisdom with me: My clients, Platinum friends, awesome mentor Christine Kane, friends (old and new), colleagues and family. Not forgetting my four-legged family too!

I hold you all in my heart this Christmas – I’m truly blessed.

Whether you’ve touched my life briefly or more intensely in 2010 this blog post is a personal THANK YOU to you for being in my life this year.

Who’s touched your life in 2010?
