I just ordered my Holiday Cards. I send out New Year’s Cards because I don’t like to offend anyone with my Christmas Greetings. I do love the Angels and Jesus and the Christmas Trees and especially Santa. I do know, however, that our earth is populated by all kinds of beliefs and I can’t really share my enthusiasm for Christmas with all the people I want to send a Holiday Greeting to.
What are your beliefs at this time of year? Do you want to find people to share those with? Hopefully you have found a spiritual home that nurtures you. Being a lawyer with all of its stress and political shenanigans can sometimes allow you to lose your sense of self. We are careful about the way we use words when it relates to ethnic groups and certainly this greater awareness has made us a better human being but it has also caused us to be criticized if we make a false move. What used to be OK language just 10 years ago, is no more.
Now is not a bad time to give this topic some consideration. You, too, need to pick out good Holiday Greetings to send to your clients, old and new, your friends and family. What do you really want to say to your sendees? What are your real wishes for them? Do you want to inspire them? Or do you want to have them know you understand their wishes and desires?
