Thrive Yourself Happy Through the Holidays
OK, you may not want to admit it and you may go as far as resenting that I bring it up, but the holidays are just around the corner and the end of another year is soon t
STOP. Take a deep breath. Call your thoughts back from the past where they want to harshly review and critique all you ‘should’ have gotten done. And don’t let your thoughts usher you to the future where they want to anticipate all that next year ‘should’ be. `Planning’ can so easily be a disguise for ‘control,’ so get out of the fast lane

It is not that you must throw your clock out, but rather treat it as a friend rather than an enemy. More important than how fast you are going is where you are headed and the grace and conscious attention you put into choosing your course.
So, there is no easy shortcut, but there is a simple path. It is a delightful road on which we are joined by many who are dedicated to creating peace and power in their life through connection and conscious choices. You are in good company and far from alone. By starting your journey based upon a firm bed of value-based ambitions, your direction becomes clearer and the inevitable potholes, twists and turns become more manageable. A meaningful, content and happy life is not a matter of doing all you do with speed and perfection. It is more a matter of driving guided by a clear intention and directed by your authentic self. Remember, we are not human “DO”-ings, we are human “BE”-ings, and time offers a loose structure with guideposts to define how the road unfolds.
The longest journey we take in life is merely 18 inches. It is the path from our head to our heart!
