So Late So Soon

reflection

How did it get so late so soon?
It’s night before it’s afternoon.
December is here before it’s June.
My goodness how the time has flewn.
How did it get so late so soon?
~Dr. Seuss

Ah, yes! Here we are once again at the final month of the year. The caboose, so to speak. A month filled with ever shortening days and the absolute shortest day, aka the winter solstice, holidays and seemingly endless celebrations.

Dr. Seuss has expressed it so well!

We find ourselves awhirl in the activities of the season wondering how we got here again so quickly!

Despite the whirlwind of activities, this is also a time of reflection. And though December is often dark and dreary there is a warmth that comes from within the heart that makes the entire month lovely and cozy. It sparkles with a different kind of light. The twinkling lights of holiday decorations, the glow that gathers loved ones around the fireplace, candles and sparkling glasses of cheer.

Looking Back

Most people are able to carve out some time during this last month to look back over the year that has passed. And we look joyfully toward the New Year all shiny with promise. Perhaps you may wonder what you can do better in the coming year? What dreams await your pursuit? How can you better serve the greater good? Maybe you need to take more time for yourself in the New Year to tend to your well-being instead of being so focused on others.

No matter where your thoughts take you, I pray you take time for yourself and those you love and enjoy this warm and wonderful season.
