Labor Day 2014 - Holidays are Sacred


I love that the “Brits” call a vacation, a holiday. So often when people spend EVERYDAY rushing around, their days comprised of mostly work, chores, errands and bills that fill in the time between daylight and dust. Then they pop home and either jump in the shower, get dressed and are off to yet another place for the evening or make dinner and crash on the couch falling into distraction in front of the TV.  Even on vacation, Americans fill in every moment of their time-off until they're exhausted when they return back home,  needing a holiday from their holiday. Interesting, right?

A holiday is a day without work and is supposed to be a day of relaxation and enjoyment. Let's take Labor Day for example. It's a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of their country. (wikipedia)

I believe a ‘Holi-day,’ is a sacred time to recharge your battery, find your inner peace and appreciate this wondrous life that we are so blessed with. When we get a chance to relax and recharge we are more fully connected to what is in our hearts.

When I spend time in a new place exploring the culture, the architecture, nature, music, etc., or enjoying quiet times with friends,  I always save time to be by myself , even for a little while to reflect and reconnect to that pure love and am in a state of total bliss, a space of peace, unconditional love, joy and compassion as I venture away from distractions like PC and TV. 

So, for the love of all that is good for you, keep YOUR wholeness or holiness in your holiday. Stop rushing around and continuing the distraction. If you cannot take a vacation, make 20 minutes a day, your vacation, your Holi-day and take this precious time to relax, de-stress and be at peace and allow unconditional love to flow into your heart. Allow your mind to become calm and serene and focus on the present. Allow your heartbeat to slow so blood can drench and rejuvenate your cells and balance your hormones. Your body, mind and soul will be delighted by the change. 

Wishing you Love this day and always,
