This was my start into my day today when I sat down in front of my laptop. What a beautiful reminder of what should really count, of what I want to give my attention to.
In this moment, when we get ready for some endings and new beginnings, for holidays with family, it is helpful advice: focus on what really matters to you. Rather than giving attention to the perfect decoration, the perfect food, the most exquisite presents, why not think about the moments we spend together? What we want to say, what we want to feel and what we want each other to know and to remember…
For me, the practice will be to carefully look at how much I want to really get done before 2018 starts. I will be with my family and my clients… and maybe not write, certainly not plan. I will however make sure that every day when we are off includes some time with “just me” and some time with “just us, family”. No program, no action, just room to let creativity build our day.
Enjoy just being!
