Slowing Down for the Holidays

The holidays are a special time, but sometimes the pressure can loom large.
A season for sharing and giving, to appreciate those you love. 
But also a season of stretching yourself too far and often outside your comfort zone.
We try to stand tall through it all.
To be that calm and collected presence in the background for our families.
And often we shine and handle the hustle with patience and grace.
But sometimes we falter and our spirit fades into the distance.
It’s during these times we need to take a step back and look at the big picture.
To slow down and listen to the music in our hearts.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
