I. How We Spend Our Time
“Realize deeply that the present moment is all you have. Make the NOW the primary focus of your life.” ― Eckhart Tolle
- Family time is limited — cherish it.
- Friend time is limited— prioritize real ones.
- Partner time is significant — never settle.
- Children time is precious — be present.
- Coworker time is significant — find energy.
- Alone time is abundant — love yourself.

III. Life Is About Growth
Be proud of how you have handled these last 11 months:
- The silent battles you have fought.
- The moments you had to humble yourself.
- The times you have wiped your own tears.
- For quieting the noise and focusing on cultivating a life that feels nourishing.
Each day is a unique opportunity to celebrate our journey, story, strength, and resiliency. As we embark on these final weeks of 2022, let’s take breaks, prioritize our peace, and allow ourselves to start and start again.
