At this time of year, you have a unique opportunity.
You get away from work for a moment or two.
And how you spend that time and what you learn,
Can impact the mindset and actions taken by you.
Think back on the year, and fill yourself with good.
Renew your commitment to your family, friends, and your values, too.
Don’t rush through the day or past people or through roles.
Take time to do it right, move forward toward your goals.
Know your impacts on others, and think about their needs.
With each show of appreciation, you’re planting positive seeds.
Find opportunities to work with others, on dreams that are new.
Openly share your gifts and talents, as you encourage them to do.
As the holidays approach, look around and take your time.
There’s nature and friendships and relationships intertwined.
There’s support and care and situations to shine.
There are people out there needing you – you just have to seek and find.
Enjoy this week, and get ready for next year,
By appreciating each breath and those you hold near.
Happy Holidays, and Merry Christmas, too!
