As we approach the holidays this year, it’s hard not to focus on everything that’s changed. Smaller gatherings, less travel, missing family members.
It’s hard to not feel what’s missing, what’s not going right. But the question I have to ask everyone is, “what purpose does it serve to focus on everything that’s not going to be with you this holiday season?”
So much of this time of year is about giving back, giving thanks, and enjoying the company of those whom we call family.
Although things are undoubtedly different, I want to challenge all of you to practice gratitude for what you do have, the family and friends you have (both those who are present and those far away).
Try to feel grateful for what you do have instead of focusing on what you don’t.
Have a happy and safe holiday.
