To make the Christmas tree cutting more fun, why not pack warm treats in a picnic basket and have a snack right where you intend to get your tree? If picnicking is not your style, you can stop by a restaurant. Or, after the tree is safely back home, everyone can drive to the nearest shopping mall to purchase ornaments and series lights to decorate the tree, or like most of us, get down the box of ornaments stored in the attic.
If youre cooking for a lot of people, chances are your kitchen (and fridge) just wont be able to cope with the volume of food required. Not to mention, trying to cook and prepare everything yourself can be a huge burden. By delegating certain tasks or meals to different family members or friends, you can make your job much simpler. Let other family members take care of cold dishes like salads and desserts so you can focus on the hot dishes and save room in your kitchen. Remember, you dont have to do it all yourself - youre always entitled to ask for help from friends and family!
Joy is all you must reach for and then begin immediately looking for the evidence that it is indeed created and finding itself into the present. No matter where you are on the scale of joy you can advance to higher places. Joy is the state when what is coming to you experiences little if any resistance and greater and greater degrees of freedom. This is just the way it is and the way it has always been. When you are in love, things work.
This is the time of the year when emotion can be quite intense and often it can be miss interpreted. Being down or a bit turned off by the Christmas Season as many people are is simply a sign that what you desire and what you are experiencing is not aligned. Whats off is the focus of your attention.
