The Rock.Paper.Scissors newsletter is out: seeking happy holidays

This month’s Rock.Paper.Scissors e-newsletter focuses on four small gifts designed to lift your spirits for the holidays.  It was written from my office in Nairobi, where I can see sun warmed banana, flame & mango trees.  Regardless whether your view is similar or decidedly different, I’d like to wish you a peaceful holiday.

Read the entire issue here or see below for an excerpt.

May you celebrate the holidays with people that bring you joy, indulge with food that nourishes your spirit & participate in experiences that bring a smile to your face.

The holidays are a time for giving & for giving back.  And as I’m privileged to work with such great clients & workshop participants I wanted to do just that.

Not everyone starts off the season with warm fuzzies.  Many are stressed, frazzled & frenetic.  Others are on pure overwhelm due to having been on overdrive for far too long.

Recognize yourself?

I invite you to sit back, put your feet up &, depending on where your ‘starting point’ is, receive one or more of the gifts included in the newsletter.

Number one: May your troubles always be smaller than your imagination:  if you have the blues & are seeking a reason to smile see below.

Polar Bear Attack in Churchill, Manitoba, Canada

These are photographs of an actual polar bear attacking a man. 

The pictures were taken while people watched and could do nothing to stop the attack!

Reports from the local newspaper say that the victim will make a full recovery.

The photos are below.

May your troubles always be smaller than your imagination
