It’s Christmas morning and I’m a little late with our Weekly Thought.
Firstly, wishing you a very happy Christmas or Holiday Season.
It’s been a big big year for all of us and with all the challenges, there are still so many things to be grateful for.
I’m grateful to be on this journey with you. What an adventure we are having.
This adventure called Life.
It’s not about the destination because we’re all headed to the same place; back to where we came from.
It’s about the adventure; it’s about the journey.
As I reflect on my journey, I am grateful for some wise words of wisdom from a group of amazing ladies that I volunteered with, in a tiny charity called Make Today Count.
Our little charity supported people and their families who were dealing with a life threatening illness.
We each had our special gifts to contribute to the organization and the people we supported.
My gift was the ability to organise things and get things done.
It was during one of our committee meetings that I was beating myself up for not having completed a task.
“Shirl, Christmas comes every year, whether you’re organized or not”, said one of the ladies.
This stopped me in my tracks. It wasn’t even near Christmas but she was right.
Here it is today and I’m a little late with the weekly thought.
I was a little disorganized this week and Christmas Day arrived anyway.
My encouragement to you this week is to take the ladies’ advice. The message and the learning I took from them is not to get all hung up about what’s done and not done. Things happen, whether we’re ready or not. Things happen whether we’re organized or not.
It’s called life. You may as well enjoy it.
