This Time of Year

Now is the interval when the rush is over. The time when it is cool and peaceful, and friends and family join us to relax and share. This is the time where the old pressures are gone, and we can wait a few days before the new demands intercede upon us. This is the time for rejuvenation and a little relaxation.

For a couple of days, we can let the New Year stand in wait. We can advise our minds that we are not taking on any new catastrophes for today. Today is now, and now is the time of relaxation and inner consideration.  Others may try to worry, and stress, not realizing that the turmoil that looks so real, is merely our mind not knowing how to relax and unwind.

Yes, it may be all out there waiting for us, yet that is the future; it is not the ‘now.’ Now is the time for peace and consideration. Recharge your energy and soothe your soul. Remind yourself that for a few days, everyone can do for themselves. You train them well, and they can work at what they want on their own.

Although you may start out with worry. And some may even feel the pang of guilt. In the long run, you have two friends who have been with you for a long time who will thank you for taking this time to yourself. We are speaking of body and mind.

Thank you for being with me today. I hope to be with you again tomorrow.

A retired Air Force Master Sergeant, Mike used to lay in bed at night and worry about what would happen if his plant closed or found himself without a job. One day his plant closed. Rather than panic and hysteria (OK, maybe a little) Mike found himself carried away on the adventure of his life. Mike started with the best job he ever had working at Home Depot. He spent 8 years working with job seekers at a local workforce center, helping them to find employment. He then started his own company developing courses, writing books and urging others to follow their own paths into the future. Mike holds a Master of Arts in Adult Education and Training and a Bachelor of Business Management, earned through the University of Phoenix and an AAS degree in Electronics Systems Technology from the Community College of the Air Force. Mike is a member of the Delta Mu Delta Business Honor Society.
