You don’t want to miss this

I’m not talking about an amazing sale, or tickets to an event.

What I don’t want you to miss, is right in front of you.

This time – right here, right now.

Your kids are young, beautiful, loving the special life you’ve created for them. This is a day they look forward to all year.

Meanwhile, you’ve been fluttering around like the busy bee you are.

Work, shopping, holiday gatherings, winter plans… there’s so much to do in such a short time!

But today – it’s time to slow down. It’s time to enjoy the moment.

Savor the sweetness

Imagine one of your favorite desserts served up on a plate to you for a special occasion – perhaps it’s cheesecake, pie, ice cream, or crème brulee – whatever it may be. Think about how much you can take in that lovely piece of deliciousness. The smell, the taste, the exquisite sense of being able to enjoy something you love.

Now, I want you to take that same idea and apply it to this holiday.

For every moment, smell the air.

For every squeal of delight, relish in the sweetness.

For every warm hug or smiling face, take in the love and the beauty of sharing this holiday with the people who love you.

It is with this mindset, that you can truly take in this beautiful season. For all the wonderful people and love that surrounds us, this is what it’s all about.

“Change your mindset, and you can change your world.” – Steve Sax

So, if you are still buzzing around, pick a time to cut your losses, slow down, and shift your mindset to take it all in.

The greatest gift you can give to your children and the people around you this holiday, is to be fully present, fully in the moment, and fully there for them.

You don’t want to miss this.

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a happy holiday season!
