Ask Not What You Can Do For Yourself

We’re heading into the annual stretch of time here in the States known as “the Holidays.”  We start thinking about our families, our time away from work, our lists, our parties, our, our, our…  Hmm…

Why do I know so much about this “our” syndrome? Basically because I spend a whole lot of time each Holiday season perfecting my skills at accomplishing the list above.  

One New Thing
It’s not that I am completely self-absorbed during this time of year, far from it.  But as I begin to see the television commercials, lights, and hear Christmas music on the radio, I’m trying to get out of the rut of being so focused on “my stuff.”  So here’s what I’m thinking…

What if each of us picked one new “good” thing to do over the next 45 days for someone else? This should be in addition to what we normally do. As I’ve been thinking about what I do each year there seems to be a certain sameness to my efforts.  I think it’s time to change things up!

How About You
Regardless of your faith perspective, this time of year brings a different feel to life. Are you up for doing something special; or is the Egg Nog malaise already setting in?

I’d love to hear from you.

No Excuses.
