So many of us go through life thinking we know what we want. But do we really?
When the routine changes, we want back to it. When we’re entrenched in the day-to-day, we want to get away. So which is it?
Has to be both.
Life will twist and turn whether we want it to or not. Embrace it. You can be present in each moment and still move forward.
Presence. Gratitude. Mindfulness. Try them out. Or … keep going through life always feeling like you should be somewhere else. Your choice.
Which are you doing? I mean, honestly, which are you really doing?
When your time comes, I hope you’ll be happy with the choices you’re making right now. You aren’t going to get another chance at it.
Put down your smartphone and go play with your kids.
This lyric is from a song called “Crusoe,” written in the early part of the 2000’s. I never got stranded on a deserted island like Daniel Defoe’s character did, but I would go on to experience just about everything major in my life changing all at once. And it’s amazing how your priorities and views of what’s truly valuable and worth pursuing change at a time like that.
There’s another line in that song that asks, “Well, maybe it’s the wanting that sustains you?” I’ve always liked to think about that line, too. I figure I’ll put “Crusoe” on my list of tracks to share in my Song Blog at some point in 2016.

Ultimately, we aspire to all three. But for the moment, I’m interested to know what your raw gut first reaction is if I were to say that, for this holiday season, you could be immediately granted just one of these three choices. Which would you choose at this moment in your life?
