It’s hard to believe that Thanksgiving will be here next week. Where, can someone tell me, has the year gone? As we gear up for the holidays, I’d like to encourage you to try something new. No, it doesn’t have to be food related (although that wouldn’t be a bad thing).
Recently, a friend of mine called to see if I was interested in running a marathon with him. Now, that’s something new for me, and it will require a lot of effort. But, what the heck. Why not? So, it looks like I may start some serious training in the next couple of weeks. Although the race we have in mind is next October, it will take me that long to get myself together.
As you read these words, I’d encourage you to think about doing something you’ve been putting off. Maybe it’s taking an art class, or learning a new style of cooking. For you, it could be getting yourself back on track financially, seeking a new job, or making a spiritual retreat.
Whatever it is, start soon. The year is ending in about six weeks. Make a resolution to do something new as we finish up the year. I can hardly remember the resolutions I made in January. By making one now, I just might be able to stick with it. Six weeks should be enough time, don’t you think?
Today, a friend of mine became a father. Congratulations, Will! Welcome to our world, Grayson 🙂 May God grant you many happy and healthy years.
