Most everyone right now is spending time looking back and looking ahead. We're thinking about what we've accomplished, where we've fallen short, and what we might do in the days and months to come. Reflection and planning are such important parts of life; seeing what great strides we've made, recognizing where we've fallen short, planning for better successes. But might we keep in mind to look at now, to see beauty all around and to be thankful for this wonderful moment. Sadly, aspirations often lose light and strength as the new year progresses. I think we can continually fuel the fires if we remember to pause and see the good right now.
Why should we be in such desperate haste to succeed, and in such desperate enterprises? If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away.Listen for your music and don't be afraid to dance because I wonder if stopping to dance might not be what keeps you going in the long run.
-Henry David Thoreau
