Pausing to Prepare

My best Christmas ever was the year I received a jewel-toned green bicycle with a light.  It was a thing of beauty and provided me with freedom to travel hither and yon.  But getting EXACTLY what I wanted wasn’t enough to keep me from feeling the post-Christmas slump.


After the holiday havoc is under control at your place, can you find some time to sit still and reckon with what you need (as opposed to what you want)?


These next few days can be crucial times of contemplation and preparation for 2018.

People who study these things tell us that contemplation is an essential prerequisite to execution of a desired lifestyle change.


Today, may you find time for the pause.
