This is the time of year when I want to slow down and savor all the little things in my world. Revel in my good fortune and reflect on my blessings. Instead, it has become the most demanding time of the year—cooking and baking, gift-buying and wrapping, decorating, parties, visits with family and friends, acts of charity and giving back.
Somehow it all gets done but the stress makes it is the same time of year I always vow to make a change. To slow it all down and make time for the important things, no matter how small.
To appreciate family, friends, health, and, of course, this magazine. As I look back over this past year at Chandler Lifestyle, I’m so proud of how it has grown, not only in size and readership, but in the way we have been able to represent and connect our wonderful community and its people.
Today, I ask you to join me in carving out a few minutes every day to take pause and do something—anything – that makes you feel good. And then another few that makes someone else feel good. Every single day. It may not slow time but it will certainly make the time more meaningful.
Wishing you and yours the happiest of holidays and a blessed New Year!
