The time of year is always overwhelming for me. I truly believe in the real Reason for the Season, but not in all the hoopla that the commercial retailers try to drill in my head, that a simple small gift is the best and it only costs "thousands of dollars".
Bah humbug I say!!!!
So, this morning I am getting ready for work (again), yes I was at the office on Sunday after my run. I feel this inner turmoil beginning to burble.....it is a grinding feeling, that you are not accomplishing much and none of it very well.....when I arrive at the office this morning I'm told that the project that I worked on over the weekend is not a priority now, that another job has taken precedence.....
"It's not hard to make decisions when you know what your values are."
Roy Disney, Longtime senior executive to The Walt Disney Company
It's natural to feel conflicted when your life is out of sync with your values.
For example, if you believe your number one value is your family and you work 65 hours a week, is it any wonder that you feel unsettled and unhappy?
When you're clear about what is important to you, it will be much easier to let go of the things in your life that don't fit.
Start the week off right...examine your values.
WOW, one of those Ahhhhaaa, moments!
One person can only do so much, one person can only be helpful when they are helpful to them self. One cannot expect to get blood from a stone.
With this busy Christmas Season ahead of us, take time to remember the Reason for the Season, don't get caught up in all of the commercialism. Take time for family, friends and most importantly, Yourself....
