It’s the holiday time. It is a time where we all take a deep breath and enjoy festive times with family and friends. As fast as the time arrives, so too does it pass. I have been trying my best to enjoy every moment of each day. I am easily distracted, however. It is usually me that distracts me. Even at this writing, I seem to be fighting to keep my attention right here, right now. It would seem my mind believes it needs to be preparing for being someplace other than where I am. There is nothing worse than being in a conversation with someone while my mind wanders elsewhere, to some future project or to something unfinished.
If I had a gift to give to myself, it would be staying in the moment…now where was I?
Oh... what I wish to say to you, is that it is my hope your holidays are filled with a multitude of wonderful moments and you are able to enjoy each and every one of them…with a minimum of distractions. Take a nighttime cruise of the neighborhood and enjoy the Christmas lights. Stare at the fire and sip cider without thinking. Make bacon pancakes and eat with real maple syrup. Enjoy breathing.
