“Instead of shooting arrows at someone else’s target, which I’ve never been very good at, I make my own target around wherever my arrow happens to have landed. You shoot your arrow and then you paint your bulls-eye around it, and therefore you have hit the target dead center.”— Brian Eno
This seemed like another excellent sentiment that we can pull from all December long. There’s this huge mystique surrounding the holiday season and a list of “shoulds” that spans miles and miles.
But THIS year, we create our own target. I’m going to spend some time today really honing in on how I’d like December to look and feel (I wrote a bit about that HERE). I’m going to pick three activities that the Walker Four enjoy and schedule them on the calendar so they don’t get lost. And I’m going to let go of those things that don’t add joy.
