Christmas 2014 Message from Nia Peeples


I sooo want to wish everyone "Happy Holidays!"
But honestly, I feel like for some, that's a lot of pressure, like I'm demanding; "BE HAPPY NOW" regardless of your circumstance or losses. Let's face it, this time of year is so emotionally charged, and not necessarily in a good way for many. It's an annual reminder that life marches on, change happens, and so much of that change is out of our control. Set against the tradition of a ‪#‎Christmas‬ tree, ‪#‎Menorah‬ and gift givin...g, the changes are much more magnified, particularly when we've lost a loved one, our home, or the finances to provide the gifts we wish we could.

It made me reconsider the value of this season. I mean certainly the joy and power of an annual tradition of such a holiday can not exist solely for those who had a "good year", or a better paycheck, or for whom things are going swimmingly well. How do we capture the magic, the promise, the hope of this annual holiday season without relying on, finances, the fulfillment of old expectations, or even family and friends to bring it to us?

For me personally, I'm in a bit of a transition in my life, my career, and therefor my finances. Yes, this evolution is something I deeply desire but that doesn't make it easy. One day I'm infused with excitement and possibility. The next day I feel like I'm standing on the edge of a cliff in a strong wind. Amidst all the uncertainty I find myself hoping for an uneventful Christmas, one that passes without much hoopla so I can get back to stabilizing my evolution.

Then I read this Quote:
"There is nothing more amazing than the higher emotional vibrations of LOVE, AWE and CREATIVE PASSION, and there is a part of you that knows it."

And I did. I knew the truth of this immediately. Why? because LOVE, AWE and CREATIVE PASSION are not things to acquire. They are states of being. To live in ‪#‎LOVE‬ ‪#‎AWE‬ and ‪#‎CREATIVE‬ ‪#‎PASSION‬ is a choice. It doesn't require money. It doesn't require equipment, transportation or even other people. I can choose to experience LOVE, AWE and CREATIVE PASSION each and every day simply by being present to the beauty in the moment rather than having my head in the past or the future. And I am absolutely positive that my choice to live in this state of being this Holiday Season, regardless of what's happening around me; the loss of my uncle, the uncertainty of an evolving career, or the state of the Union for that matter, will bring me all the Magic, Promise and Hope of this Holiday Season.
 
Now I can say it with confidence:
 
HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
 
and know that it is here for all of us.
