In this episode:

I want to broaden the idea of “the spirit of the season” for you just a bit. Think about the phrase “spirit of the game” in sports or hearing someone say, “that’s the spirit” or “I can’t make the party, but I’ll be there in spirit”.

“Spirit” refers to the heart or the essence of something – the “core of existence” of that person, idea, concept or entity. So, what does it mean if you’re “not” in the spirit? If you’re not tapping into the truth or the reality of the thing?

Let’s face it, sometimes we’re not in the spirit of things – for whatever reason. Could be grief, detachment, stress – or a number of things. It can be that we float in and out of it. It happened to me tonight on my way to a rehearsal. In this episode, I share that story with you because I think it can be helpful to you when you experience this “falling out of the spirit” and into a mindset that doesn’t serve you well. Listen to learn how I quickly got back into the spirit of the season. You can use the same tool to get a quick shift!
