The Tree!

December 8, 2014 in Jim's Journal

It’s that time again!  Chestnuts roasting on an open fire.  Jack Frost nipping at your nose.  Long lines. frantic shoppers, self-created stress and myriad tension conventions.  Yes, the holiday season has its ups and downs and its highs and lows.  Want to know where to find me most evenings during this time of the year though?  If I’m not on the road JIMPACTing clients, I can be found at home, sitting in the family room, listening to various artists’ Christmas CDs (e.g., the Temptations, Whitney Houston, Salsoul Orchestra, Stevie Wonder and BeBe and CeCe Winans just to name a few) as I stare at the Christmas tree.  Yes, the tree.  I love a well-decorated tree and I love watching the blinking lights chase each other.  The lesson in this journal however is not whether you should buy a Douglas Fir, Fraser Fir, Scotch, Eastern White or Virginia Pine.  It’s about focus.  Is your focus more on what’s under the tree or who’s around the tree?  People lose their mind this time of the year zealously searching for the perfect gift.  My perfect gifts?  Love, togetherness, thankfulness and appreciation.  How about you?
