The Christmas present you never wanted (or I at least I didn’t)


It’s taken some time to process, but I am ready to share.

Say, you get a gift for Christmas. You don’t want the present, but hey, you get anyway.

What if I told you I was going to cut your monthly income by 1/3?

 A week before Christmas break a company I teach for canceled most of their lessons with me. From one day to the next I lost a whole 1/3 of my teaching hours – 1/3 of my income. 

That’s scary, that’s chaos – and it is also…

Good news. Great news.

Am I worried? – Yes.

Do I like it? – Not hardly.

It is necessary? Absolutely.

Right before Christmas life decides to throw some snowballs my direction. Now, it’s just how I respond (not react) that sets the direction of my life.

I’m looking at this as a gift, one of the greater gifts because life is giving it. That means it comes with more blessing, opportunity and growth than my own gifts.

Keep thriving,
