Christmas Wish 2012




Lapa, Brasil

Another year has passed and once again it is one of Christianity's most holiest of holidays - Christmas

Hanoi, Vietnam
Bangkok, Thailand

Cusco, Peru
Curitiba, Brasil
This year I wish for everyone something that I am unable to purchase, make, or even give to you.

It is something that you can not even purchase for yourself.

I wish you ... Peace.

I am not wishing you "Peace" as in the lack of violence, or armed conflict, for to achieve that would require the cooperation and good will of far too many people, all people that I and you have no control over.

The peace that I wish for you this season is the peace that you can create and find within yourself.

The peace that comes from knowing that you have done your best and done all that you could.

The peace that comes from accepting and being comfortable with who you are.

The peace that comes from knowing that tomorrow will be better and the next day even better than   that.

The peace that comes from helping others in all the ways that you are able.

The peace that comes from living everyday as if it could be your last day.

The peace that comes from knowing that your beliefs and values are valid, and that although you have expressed them, you are not responsible to convince others nor do you need their agreement.

The peace that comes from knowing that others are not responsible for your happiness.

The peace that comes from knowing and accepting that you are not responsible for other's happiness.

The peace that comes from living your life as you choose rather than as you suspect others may expect you to.

The peace that comes from being self reliant and confident.

So for this season, I am wishing you the peace of happiness.
