At seven years old, I sat on Santa Claus’ lap and I believed in him and all he stood for. So many years later, I still believe.
I believe we can…
Wonder at everyday life
Delight in our own uniqueness
Stop and listen to the music in our heart
Celebrate our strengths
Be kind to ourselves
Find time for joy
As I write this list, I can’t help but think of the movie The Polar Express and the theme of believing. As Santa Claus takes the bell and hands it to the little boy, he says: “This bell is a wonderful symbol of the spirit of Christmas – as am I. Just remember, the true spirit of Christmas lies in your heart.”
It doesn’t matter what holiday you celebrate, or what faith you practice, the power of believing keeps us all strong and hopeful and alive. During this holiday season, I raise a toast to you and all that you can accomplish if you choose to believe.
