"When we choose to follow our dreams instead of our reality..."
On this Christmas Eve, I am thinking about those special moments that make this the best time of year.
My favourite tradition on Christmas Eve is that quiet moment at the Christmas Eve Service. It is near the end of the service, you all stand and pass along the fiery light started from the front that joins everyone together. Across your candle it flickers on to your neighbour and soon the sanctuary filled with the glow and the cords of Silent Night begin. The words seem to stretch across the crowd just like the candle light did as it began its course through the crowd. Soon, there are smiles across all faces as grandparents, parents, aunts and uncles, kids and cousins, friends and loved ones are all together in this moment of peace. It is as if all the hustle and bustle and busyness to this point is gone, it is about each other and where we stand and how we love those around us. Wow, I cherish that moment every year. Even as I talk about it, it becomes so real!
What Christmas tradition stands out for you? How does it make you feel?
This project is inspired by the desire in all of us to step outside of our reality and to live our dreams. Once we have made that choice, we change our history but we must first be willing to change. The ripple effect will take us with the current to the next stage or season of our lives, one step closer to our dreams. In one moment, you can change everything.
