I find myself tempted to rush through this final month and begin the new year, eager to speed through and start fresh.

I’m reining in this urge and slowing down so I can be fully present and appreciate the value of each day.

I pay attention to my breath, I feel the wind rustling through the sun-dappled trees, I listen to my loved ones share their emotions and experiences – these are active practices of presence that keep me awake, aware, and alive with gratitude.

I hope you all feel engaged, grounded, and thankful in the days to come.
