Just for a minute, pretend that it’s your first day in grade school and the teacher is asking the class to describe what they did and learned over the summer. Hands fly in the air and the room is filled with the excitement of each child’s enthusiastic heart, bursting to share their stories.
The stories will generally describe new adventures and joyful learning experiences. Can you remember catching lightening bugs and butterflies, chasing the ice cream truck, riding a roller coaster, playing ball, scraping your knee, making new friends and just creating new memories that would last a lifetime?
How will you spend your summer? What will you learn? Will it just be another two months at the office without fun or standout memories? Will you take the time to be present, to free your spirit, relax or find new adventures? Will you wake to greet each day with the enthusiasm to transform your dreams into reality? Will you focus on personal transformation? If not, why? If not now, when?
