How do you start your Christmas morning?

How do you start your Christmas morning?

Mine started an hour ago at 5am in the house i grew up in.

We arrived from Orlando yesterday.

From 80 degrees to 40.

Weirdly, i miss the 17-year tradition of starting the day delivering food for needy Central Florida families.

Visiting aging relatives, on both sides of our Family, inspires me to think about my life should i live another 20-30 years.

And i can’t help but wonder if our Son will see us as an example or a warning.

Life is hard for everyone.

Do you see your transformational opportunity?

Completely random (accidental) photo yesterday.

 

Do you see your transformational opportunity?

Two choices every day.

Autopilot:

  • no plan
  • reacting to life as it comes
  • unintentional

Present:

  • game plan
  • proactively influencing life as it comes
  • intentional

 

Pick one.

This test will be repeated every day until you die

Are you going to write the book you privately tell yourself you want to write? Photo: Yesterday at Barnes and Noble.

 

This test repeats itself every day until you die.

You make, or don’t make a decision, and then you wonder if you did the right thing.

Or, you agonize over not making the best decision and beat yourself up. You know what you should have done, but you didn’t.

This doubt and corresponding fear become an insidious habit. You justify this in your mind. The security in playing it safe feels better than the opportunity in being brave.

Another day comes and goes like a thief in the night

Epcot at Christmas
Yesterday, Winter Solstice eve.

 

Winter Solstice is today, December 21, 2016.

Simply another day that comes and goes like a thief in the night.

Is there any significance to being mindful of the Winter Solstice?

Only one person can answer that.
