Did you get what you wanted?

What’s on your holiday wish list? 

My daughter asked for tickets to the Vinyl Cafe Christmas concert – we went last night. It was terrific!  We are major “Vinyl Cafe Nerds”. It was great to see her so happy and know that I could be a part of this enjoyable wish.

I try to keep the perfect gift in mind throughout the year. I do a lot of travelling to our offices & speaking, when something great grabs my eye, I grab it!  It’s wonderful to remember the past year when the gifts come out during the holiday season. Don’t get me wrong, I love receiving too, but seeing someone light up and know that I hit the nail on the head is even better!

The perfect gift is a combination of receiving what we want AND what we need. Once the initial rush of pleasure subsides with the want, the need allows the glow to linger.


To many people holidays are not voyages of discovery, but a ritual of reassurance.” To me, this quote really sums up what we all want & need from the holiday season.

For some reading this, it may be time of year where the happy rituals are lost in the pressure of getting everything done. You may be in a time of transition, and questions about the future are mingling with the festive cheer.


Wherever you are at in your life, may you discover, in new or very familar ways, the ritual of reassurance.
