A Protector's Season
If You Know Me...
You know that my favorite holiday is Halloween... Next is Thanksgiving... Then Christmas... Then Independence Day.
To me Thanksgiving is punctuated by Christmas of course. They are like fraternal twins. Similar in spirit (speaking in a non-religious way), one of thankfulness, goodwill and love, but also different.
I come from a small, less-drama ridden family, so really both holiday's have been quite warm and cozy for me. They have brought a lifetime of good family memories.
Now you might think because of my affinity for Halloween that my favorite movie would be Tim Burton's Nightmare Before Christmas, Edward Scissor Hands, or Gremlins this time of year.
Well... they are alright, but certainly not my favorite.
I do like me a little Holiday Cheer this time of year!
Here are my top 10 favorite Christmas movies:
1) A Charlie Brown Christmas
2) The Grinch Who Stole Christmas
3) A Christmas Story
5) It's a Wonderful Life
6) Star Wars Holiday Special (Kidding! Just seeing if you're paying attention!)
7) Rudolf the Red Nose Reindeer
8) Frosty the Snowman
10) National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation
11) The Santa Claus
Season of the Protector
Every season is a Protector's Season... However the Holiday Season IS a time to connect with our WHY we are Protectors and WHAT it is we are really protecting.
It's this time of year to connect and reflect to the Protector Ethic.
I know this is a time when many people fall into depression and suicide, and that is truly unfortunate.
However, if you let it be, this can be a healing time of year. If you focus on the right things, this is a time of year to renew and refocus on the things that matter most.
And then take that feeling into the New Year and make your plan to implement those feelings into actions. The feeling is only a starting point. How are you LIVING that idea of goodwill and love every day?! Even in those times when you wouldn't think that that's necessary or even smart...
Like during conflict, violence and the messy static that comes with being human.
Then this idea of holding that ethic for the sanctity of Life get real!
The Best Gift of All
A Protector's Life is just better.
If you would like to start that journey yourself, or if you walk it already, now's the time.
