‘Twas The Night Before Christmas”

By Clement Clarke Moore

Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St Nicholas soon would be there.

The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads.
And mamma in her ‘kerchief, and I in my cap,
Had just settled our brains for a long winter’s nap.

When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter.
Away to the window I flew like a flash,
Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash.

The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow
Gave the lustre of mid-day to objects below.
When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But a miniature sleigh, and eight tinny reindeer.

With a little old driver, so lively and quick,
I knew in a moment it must be St Nick.
More rapid than eagles his coursers they came,
And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name!

“Now Dasher! now, Dancer! now, Prancer and Vixen!
On, Comet! On, Cupid! on, on Donner and Blitzen!
To the top of the porch! to the top of the wall!
Now dash away! Dash away! Dash away all!”

As dry leaves that before the wild hurricane fly,
When they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky.
So up to the house-top the coursers they flew,
With the sleigh full of Toys, and St Nicholas too.

And then, in a twinkling, I heard on the roof
The prancing and pawing of each little hoof.
As I drew in my head, and was turning around,
Down the chimney St Nicholas came with a bound.

He was dressed all in fur, from his head to his foot,
And his clothes were all tarnished with ashes and soot.
A bundle of Toys he had flung on his back,
And he looked like a peddler, just opening his pack.

His eyes-how they twinkled! his dimples how merry!
His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry!
His droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow,
And the beard of his chin was as white as the snow.

The stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth,
And the smoke it encircled his head like a wreath.
He had a broad face and a little round belly,
That shook when he laughed, like a bowlful of jelly!

He was chubby and plump, a right jolly old elf,
And I laughed when I saw him, in spite of myself!
A wink of his eye and a twist of his head,
Soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread.

He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work,
And filled all the stockings, then turned with a jerk.
And laying his finger aside of his nose,
And giving a nod, up the chimney he rose!

He sprang to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle,
And away they all flew like the down of a thistle.
But I heard him exclaim, ‘ere he drove out of sight,
“Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good-night!”

Breath…. April 15, 2013

slider5bThis is a short little post today due to the fact that my hand is still healing and after a day of typing it needs a little break but….

The last month or so has been wonderfully, insanely busy… with coaching, family, delicious boyfriend, back office to-do’s, finishing my meditation download and promoting my business with The Positivity Project.  And as the days move forward and I move forward the days are filled.  It seems that after I meditate in the morning I’m completely forgetting to be aware of my breath.  This is a crucial aspect in staying in the moment because it’s in the moment where we can be the most aware and of service.  How is your breathe today?

I had just sat down after completing a busy  business day and starting dinner when I gave a big exhale.  You know the kind of exhale where your whole body relaxes and gives into the soft relaxation?  It was rather delicious!  I usually have regular breath check-ins during the day but it didn’t seem to happen today….  How are you when you move through the day and have regular awareness of your breath?  I find it to allow emotions to move through me rather than get stuck.  I find it much easy to remain in the moment.  My pulse and heart rate stay down and I live in a state of gratitude.

 

So I guess I want to know what you to do be aware of your breath and how does it affect you?

Off to breathe!

 

Lots of Love-

Count Your Blessings… December 1, 2012

Today is December 1st and I’m absolutely “Gob Smacked” that we are so close to the end of the year…. I remember as a child adults saying that the older one becomes the faster the years will go.  And at that time I thought they were all crazy but now? I’m right there with them.  It’s also truly the holiday season now (even though the stores would like us to think otherwise) and as a real lover of this time of year I always watch the Big Crosby Danny Kaye movie White Christmas.  Of all the absolutely quintessential Christmas music in it my favorite of all time is Count You Blessings.  And since I’ve been blogging quite a bit these days about gratitude I thought I’d add this one into the mix. Enjoy!

 

 

Lots of Love!

What are you Gr8ful 4? November 29, 2012

A few years ago I did a Gratitude Experiment for a month and blogged about it…. And you know what I miss it. The intensity of it…

I’ve kept a Gratitude Journal for well over a decade now and I have always found myself to be a very Gr8ful human but I got to wondering…. What would be different if I stated my gratitude not only throughout the day but out loud so that others heard me.  Well I found out a few very powerful things:

  • It immediately pulls you into the moment and quiets the chattering monkey and the gremlins.  It allows you to hear your own authentic voice.
  • By sharing with others what they are Gr8ful for we energetically hold their and your intentions at a higher more healthy level for Gratitude to grow.
  • Hence the more you find to be Gr8ful for, the more you have to be Gr8ful for!

This month-long experiment was amazing! So what was an experiment, became be part of my everyday life.   Here are the 5 things I am Gr8ful 4, for today!

Today I’m Gr8ful 4:

  1. Beautiful delicious Sunshine!
  2. My scrumptious Boyfriend!
  3. Knitting for others!
  4. Organic and Locally made Nubian Heritage Shea Butter
  5. Chinese Herbs

I invite you to join me! Start telling me what you are Gr8ful 4 and see what shows up in your life. Tweet it, Facebook it or simply comment here.  I’d LOVE to know and share in this journey with you.

 

Lots of Love!

Gratitude…. November 22, 2012

Thanksgiving is a time of year that always reminds me how grateful I am… And in the last few days there have been a few things that have happened to remind me even more of just this.  Today’s blog post I’m taking a moment to ask that you tell those close to you how much they mean to you and extend this love out to others that you come in contact with today. Being in a place of love not only is good for you directly but helps others in kind.  Here is a wonderful Shaker song that I simply love, love, love… Simple gifts!

Truly sending Love to you today!

And Happy Thanksgiving!

~SHC
