I hope that you have a very merry Christmas with your family, friends, and loved ones. I hope that you can enjoy some time away from your computer, email-checking, and social media to talk with those around you. Laugh. Eat your favorite holiday foods. Watch a movie that reminds you of when you were a kid and how magical Christmas was for you. Be kind. Give hugs. Be still. There may not be snow on the ground. You may have to get back to work very soon. But for now, just be. Remember what you are thankful for today. And I bet none of those things has anything to do with how many hours of work you put in or have ahead of you. Or how long that to-do list may be. Or how much money you made this year, or how little. But it might have everything to do with the people you are surrounded by, the travels you made, the things that didn’t go as planned but made you wiser nonetheless, your health and all the wonderful things your body is capable of, and maybe a new perspective on life.
I am very thankful for you today. Thank you for reading these posts each week. It means the world to me.
Have the best Christmas!
