Merry Commercialmas!

    Deck the halls with shoppers manic, fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la.
    'Tis the season to be frantic, fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la.

     Well, you get the drift.  I think we all have a love-hate relationship with this time of year.  There's too much to do, too much to buy, too much to bake or create or assemble or ship, too many people to potentially offend, and so on.  It's just too much pressure!

     May I suggest another way?  First, take a deep breath.  Then, take it

     Yes, we all feel overwhelmed, but that doesn't have to invade every moment of your waking life, does it?  Be aware of your breath.  Be aware of how you treat others, even that surly cashier in line four.  Be aware that if you want peace, it begins with you.  Breathe.
