A little hibernation is always good…

The time is ticking away, the weather is nowhere near as cold as this picture suggests and there seems to be an eery quietness surrounding the city streets. While I am not a fan of the winter, I am a fan of small periods of hibernation. I say this only because I am the type of person that never seems to know how to slow down and take it easy so the winter forces me, in a gentle way of course, to do this.

As I begin this brief hibernation period, I realize that my life has made quite a dramatic shift in the past few years, all for the better. If we listen to the world’s woes all the time, the economic climate, the political climate and things of the like, it’s no wonder we all think things are a whole lot worse. If we solely take a look at what surrounds us, what we see is most likely very different.

My summation of this year after listening to all the uninspiring news from the world over is this: Do not use the excuse that the world is in turmoil to take a little turmoil away from your circle of influence. Here’s a big news flash, the world has always been in turmoil and chances are, turmoil will never be eliminated anyway so why not bring that “give peace a chance” to your personal world.

By the way, this isn’t a “Holiday” thing, it’s the human thing that we all say we want, but few actually demonstrate it.

And so I say on this very peaceful morning, thank you for being a part of my personal world and making it brighter as I hope to do the same for you.

much get in, it’s cold love
