Christmastime is here
Well, it’s here! (We’re not entirely sure how it’s Christmas again already, but we’re here for it!) This weekend may be filled with last-minute shopping, cookie-baking, tree-trimming, or cleaning the house for incoming guests. Or, you might be really good at getting things done in advance, and in that case, enjoy the downtime!
Have a safe, warm, and wonderful holiday, whatever you do!
Until a few years ago, I was one of those people who let my life go on auto-pilot. Life is complicated: We all walk around happy and distracted, and sometimes, without even realizing it, we’re on cruise control. Everyone talks about how nothing good happens when you are in your comfort zone, but how and when do you realize that it’s time to move out of it?
There was a lot of turbulence before our flight was about to land. Everyone was screaming on the plane. Dallas was experiencing a thunderstorm, and we were stuck flying through it. My kids were with me and my son was worried. I was panicking, but at that time I realized that I needed to be there for him.
