Beginning and Endings

Driving across the prairie on my way to visit my Mother, my daughter and I talk about what makes us happy. And what we hope to achieve next year. Having taken a gap year, she feels ready to go away to college next year. We agreed. We’re both ready for change.

“It’s not that some people have willpower and some don’t,” said physician James Gordon. “It’s that some people are ready to change and others are not.”

I’m contemplating this as I look ahead to the Thanksgiving holiday. And Christmas and New Year’s which follow swiftly afterward. It’s a good time to take stock. Be grateful for what works in our lives. Shed what doesn’t. Change is good.

Happy Thanksgiving!
