The last Monday of 2019 has risen up to bid farewell to the old year, and I find myself struggling to answer a question I posed 2 days ago regarding a gift that we could’ve given ourselves this holiday season but didn’t.
I’m struggling because I thought I had already given myself the most incredible one; spending the holidays at a beautiful Colombian beach with my family, reconnecting and having an amazing time!
What could ever surpass that?
Now I realize that posting without knowing the answer encouraged me to have a conversation with myself to prioritize what really matters in my current reality.
The gift I could’ve given myself but didn’t, is TIME! I’m here with my family but somehow I’m not fully present – Although the wireless coverage where I’m staying is limited, I’ve been glued to my phone thinking about emails, posts, and the outside world in general.
Once I leave this paradise and go back to Canada, my priorities will shift, but right now I refuse to take family time for granted, as well as the time I have left to play with my brother’s dogs 🙂
Only 2 days for 2020. Holy s**t!
I wish everyone the very best for an incredible new decade.
What are you making priority in the new year?
