    Hi Renee,
    You hit the nail on the head for sure. I find myself with each passing holiday, growing further away from the romanticized view of the perfect Christmas and more into what it is really about. The shift to a more real experience has created a sort of empty feeling, which seems counter-intuitive since I long for more connection. However, reading through your post makes me wonder if the reason I am feeling this emptiness is because I am no longer am caught up in the madness. Perhaps the crazy pre-holiday rush was my addiction?
    Thanks for sharing your thoughts with all of us:) Hope your 2014 rocks! Jessie

      Yes! Jessie… I agree with you. For many years I spent the holidays running around to dozens of places… A few gatherings per day and it was chaos. When we grow up with chaos, we tend to find comfort in it. That crazy busy time is actually somewhat comfortable for some. Even though I didn’t really like it in the moment, it was what I was used to. I found that I needed to learn how not to create crazy busy to feel safe… Instead feel safe in the quiet and stillness within. Sending you love and glad to hear from you 😉

    Iam a stay at home mom and have been for my whole adult life. I am always feeling lonely and I indulge in cookies, chocolate, ice cream, my favourite foods, chips etc EVERYDAY. Ive built a box around myself telling myself I like being alone. In a way that is true but being alone is not the same as feeling lonely. Just as the story you mentioned above with the woman standing between 5000 people and still feeling lonely. I guess its all about feeling connected spiritually either with the people around you or with God. Iam enabling my indulgence by staying at home with my youngest one all day long everyday. I hate that I cant control my urges to eat but in the same time I do everything to keep it that way. I also hate that Iam keeping my youngest one from going out and play and meet people… I dont know what to do or how to break this evil circle..
