Christmas is a time of peace, reflection, silence, happiness, moments of hope, love and more.
"During the Christmas season, hearts come closer." As you might know, the root of the word courage is cor – which is the Latin word for heart. When the hearts come closer, in a figurative sense, it also means for me that people courageously and sincerely dedicate themselves to the people they love, consciously take time for them, pause with them, show them their true appreciation, reflect with them, listen to them, say thank, if needed apologise, offer help, encourage them or simply have joy together, be truly present, give space to lightness, let their soul dangle together and more...
With this in mind, I wish you and your loved ones a Merry and heartful Christmas time!
