I am on a mission this year. I am going to enjoy my holidays if it is the last thing I do. This has been on my mind since October hit, because October is the time when our family celebrations begin. Birthdays, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Client Appreciation Party, Christmas, and New Years.
I missed nearly all of these last year except for the Client Appreciation Party. What I mean is physically I was present, but mentally I was diving into one of the biggest business moves of my career to date. I was even slightly worried all of 2019 that I somehow messed up and 2018 would be my last holiday with those I loved...and I wasn't even "there".
You have heard me talk about my values in previous blogs, and as you know, time is at the top of the list. I have missed saying goodbye because I misused my time. My business started because of those lost 20 minutes. Therefore, I do my best to optimize every minute, and I try to respect the time of others.
Where I spend my time and energy will over rule the almighty dollar. It is my most valuable form of currency. When people ask me for my time I weigh if they deserve it, and then I reflect to make sure the time I am asking of others is being reciprocated.
Time is important.
This year I will be present with my families. I will use my time wisely up until family events, and then the computer shuts down, and I will be present. Being present is my gift to myself this year.
Thank you for making it through this choppy blog of mismatched thoughts. I wish you the happiest of holidays. <3
