Miracle Story

Expectation of Joy at Christmas

My miracle story is that after having read John’s book, I thought about the concepts and put them on the back-burner. In the lead up to Christmas I had some anticipation of our traditional family Christmas which can be kind of stressful in the planning processes and the day each year it is very stressful. I had started to visualize stress and of course it got bigger and bigger.

One morning I woke up after reading the book, with the idea and thought, “Hey, wait a minute, why don’t you expect a miracle instead of a disaster”. It released me for about a week in anticipation of Christmas from this expectation of disaster from imagining my family coming together and really enjoying each others company. I started to really picture us communicating and just being relaxed together. And that motivated me to send out an email to my family members to start to plan Christmas instead of waiting for the inevitable lack of organisation to stress us all out.

I can’t say the email changed a whole lot in terms of how Christmas did evolve that year, but it certainly gave me some relief in the time leading up to Christmas and it gave me a sense of we really do create our own futures. So if I was anticipating stress, it was going to be stressful. If I was going to anticipate a wonderful time together, that was going to happen.

It was such a simple concept and I was very appreciative of it. It is something that needs continual focus for it to work … a very good experience.
