This December, the last month of the year, take a moment to review your life and recent days. It's a good time to question the things you buy, the things you do, the habits you have, and the people you relate to.
Thankfulness is a state of mind. It should be practiced every day we get to just wake up and take our first breath, because life itself is the most precious gift of all.
With busyness and hurry controlling our lives, we deceive ourselves thinking that tailgating the car in front of us will get us where we need to be faster, but it won't. Remember: if you hit that car, you're automatically at fault; at least in Florida you are.
Now passion is a word that's been thrown around quite a bit and not given very much thought. I don't believe we are born with one passion and that we should follow it relentlessly to the end of our days. I see that our interests are ever changing, as well as habits and skill set.
There is never one season like the other. The Bible says there is a time for everything, which means some seasons will be exciting to experience, while others, not so much.
As my grandmother used to say, "sound pollution" has become a constant in our lives. It's almost unescapable.
Does mundane indicate meaningless? Absolutely not. We can live life as deliberately as we wish, if only the focus is life. This is not settling for less, as we actually gain more life. Extraordinary or not, if devoid of purpose, life is not life, it is merely a time-killing existence.
