Often I focus on what needs to change. How we can learn, grow, and live more fully. As with anything, however, nothing is absolute. There are times when we need to forgo our pursuit of knowledge. There are times when we need to on enjoy life. There are times when we need to focus on tradition.
Each of us has recurring traditions that bring a smile to our face. It could be the Thanksgiving dinner, the Easter Holiday, the meeting of your buddies at the bar to start the football season, the week at the family cabin spent fishing, the reading of “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” on Christmas Eve, or some other event. Regardless of the specifics, these experiences are the ones that we look forward to, that we draw energy from, and that we remember long after the occasion.
As we too often get caught up in the day to day and forget about the importance of growth, there is the similar risk that we get too caught up in the focus on growth and forget to enjoy. That would be a mistake.
With that in mind:
What’s your favorite tradition?
As always, thanks for the time.
