Don’t count the days, make the days count.

Soon we will be in full holiday mode. That means the countdowns are about to start. Countdown to Thanksgiving. Countdown to Christmas. Countdown to the bowl games. Countdown to a favorite activity. Countdown to the guests arriving.

So many countdowns. Get your advent calendar ready.

When we count the days, for whatever reason, it is easy to forget about the value of the day we are living. The one you are experiencing right now. Sometimes we live in so much anticipation of a waited-for day, that we miss today.

Don’t let today pass you by. There is much to be grateful for, to experience, and to learn.

Make today count by starting that one thing you have been meaning to do. 

Make today count by reaching out to that one person who has been on your mind.

Make today count by saying you are sorry.

Make today count by giving forgiveness.

Make today count by saving and enriching your key relationships.

I hope you all have a wonderful holiday season and a wonderful “every day” leading up to your much-anticipated celebrations.
