Motivational Monday Dec 9 2013 – The Season for Extra Sparkle

on December 9, 2013

The 2013 Holiday season is in full swing.  Or as I like to look at it “Extra Sparkle Season”   Christmas lights and decorations shine brightly all around town, parties and family gatherings abound.  There really is nothing like the feeling of the Holidays!  On the other hand we are all busy, possible stressed (ok probably stressed) and excited all at once.   Between the shopping, the wrapping, the baking and the crazy kids (please tell me I’m not the only one with crazy kids) the season can really take a told on one’s Sparkle!

So as you go through the season may I suggest you remember a few things to keep your sparkle bright:

1) Let your inner sparkle shine throughout the season.  Let it light the whole world around you.  Be a beacon in what our world has made a busy stressful time.  Remember the true meaning of the season is a one of giving, good will, celebration and love!  Not baking, gifts and all the other things that can derail your mojo.  Be the light to others in these crazy busy times.

Matthew 5:16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven

2)Don’t forget to continue to get your sparkle (aka: sweat) on! However, with that being said don’t let there be guilt over a missed workout or overindulging in a meal.  This will surely dull the sparkle within you and we definitely don’t want that!  Being healthy and fit is a process and is NOT made or broken over one meal or even one week.

3)Don’t let others dull your sparkle  Easier said than done at times I know, believe me.  Take a deep breath, say a short prayer do what ever you need to do to keep it glowing.

Sparkle on my friends!  Happy Holidays!
