Presents < Being Present

Not too long ago, I wrote about being present. Now, days before the holidays, I can't think of a better time for us to remind ourselves about how important it is. Through all the craziness of buying and wrapping presents, it's easy to get lost in the materialism of it all. This year, I'm going to wear my amethyst ring as an anchor, remind myself to breathe more consciously, and try to notice all the little things. 

Growing up, I never truly appreciated what it meant to have everyone at home with nothing on the agenda but cooking and eating good food, listening to music and being together. This year, after being around the world and back, I'm really appreciating it all. I hope each of you reading this has a wonderful time with your families and friends this week. Catch ya on the flip side right before the new year for some resolutions!
