The Black Friday / Cyber Monday rush is behind us and now it’s the mad dash to Christmas. STOP! I realize it’s cliché to say we need to take time and enjoy the holidays but please... put aside the idiot drivers, the screaming kids, the crowded malls, the overpriced crap no one will use, and the abrasive customers /shoppers / relatives. Pledge to yourself that this Christmas you’ll look deep in your own soul and see what you need inside of you. Ask yourself what makes you crave to be alive. Find what makes the air sweeter and the water fresher and embrace it during this season of peace. For me, it’s the look of gentle kindness on my daughter’s face, and the warmth in my wife’s hand when we touch, and many other indescribable joys. Find what thrills you in the depths of your soul and embrace it at this wonderful time of year.
