​31 Ways To #ChangeState — Day 23: Celebrate


12 Noon

South Saint Paul, Minnesota


¡Buenos días amigo!


Christmas is nearly here!


Gifts are wrapped, trees are decorated, credit card bills haven’t arrived yet…


Most of the stress leading up to Christmas has passed. Now we just gotta be places… all the places… we’re booked solid…


For some, Christmas is a celebration of time together with family.

For others, it’s a time to take a break from work.

It’s a time to be thankful for what we have.

Or perhaps Jesus is your Reason for the Season.


However you want to look at it, *|FNAME|* — when we celebrate, we take the ordinary, raise it up, and look at it in a new light.


Find something — or better yet, someone — in your life that you’re happy to have. Show your gratitude. Share your spirit with others.


This past year, my wife had thyroid surgery and my oldest child had colon surgery. It was a rough year in some ways.


But those difficulties help us to see what’s truly important.


And for that, we celebrate.


What are you celebrating this year, *|FNAME|*?
