If I am faced with a challenging situation — traffic, parenting, difficult people, the inconveniences of everyday living — then it is easy to wish my difficulties away.
For many of us, Christmas means we will be spending a lot of time with our difficulties.
It can be an especially challenging time and we fall into a pattern of hurry, hurry, hurry.
Or, in my case… a mindset where I simply want “it” to be over.
In two weeks, I turn 49.
I remember a handful of (birth)days from the last 40 years.
Life’s going to be done soon enough.
Careful if you find yourself wishing “it” away.
