I don’t think it’s any secret that I can talk. Sure, I have my quiet moments. But have you read my other blog posts? Have you seen the videos I put out? (hint: I have to be very intentional about not getting long-winded with them) RARELY do any of the classes I teach classes get out early. There’s simply just too much good stuff to talk about. And don’t get my family started on getting out the door after church. I’m usually there to see the lights get turned off.
As I was planning this blog post, I was trying to figure out something to eloquently pontificate about regarding Christmas and the new year. Surely I have words deep down inside of me that will deeply touch someone and make a life-changing difference.
And then I got distracted. By a conversation about our Christmas plans. Plans to not really do much at all. Sure, there are family gatherings and church services and whatnot. But all of our family is coming here for Christmas. We aren’t traveling anywhere. My wife and I both took the full week off of work, but there will definitely be downtime during the week.
And I am EXCITED about that simpler span of time. I’m a busy guy. We are a busy family. There is almost always something going on. It is easy to get lost in the clutter. And so I am absolutely relishing my quiet, simple week ahead.
And then I wonder why that has to be such a rare occasion. Truth is, it doesn’t. We just lose sight of that in the cluttered busyness of life. Work, finances, relationships, activities, family. We get too busy with all of the daily stuff.
So to wrap this up and honor that simpler sentiment (told you I am rarely lacking things to say), I will simply say from all of the staff at LSS Center for Financial Resources, a very merry Christmas and a happy, satisfying New Year to you and yours.
(Oh yeah, and if you would like help finding peace, simplicity, or anything else in your personal finances, the counselors at the Center for Financial Resources would be happy to help you find that.)
