Yep, it’s that time of year. Most of us are still running around like crazy, and the ones that aren’t are just too organized.
I don’t trust them.
I mean seriously, who recommends shopping for gifts year round? Don’t get me wrong. I shop. For gifts. Year round.
I just don’t shop in February for friends or family members a month after settling into the New Year with the intention of storing away the gift (s) for nearly a calendar year.
I dunno, maybe it’s me and my nature to just sort of roll with the punches for most of my days. Which I think I do fairly well. Hell, I would venture to think we all live our lives pretty much the same way.
I am making another goal.
To live in the moment. I know it sounds vague, so I’m going to say “In the Moment” for me, is a week out. A month if need be. And all the rest, I can sort of plan in the back of my head, but it has to be sort of an after thought.
This does NOT include investments, bills or any money related terms. That can just be trouble.
I want to be a present part of the…
Whether it’s good or bad, sad or mad. I’m going to try and remain aware of what is.
Because honestly? I have not lived nearly these many years to find myself unable to behave in a manner most people would adhere to as a first grader. If I do… then I fail.
I sound noble now, but it may only be a short amount of time before I succumb to an elementary grade level mentality.
That’s okay. It’s human. And maybe that is the real lesson to be learned here.
Let us live and let live. Don’t judge anyone. Learn from others.
Even the organized ones. Merry Christmas.
