This holiday I would like the gift of wisdom. Of course, I have received this sense of fresh, solid goodness often over the years, but It’s needed in my life more so now.
- Good sense
Why is it needed at this time?
World news continues to expose dark times with startling examples, while omitting and/or balancing bright directive examples of current events.
There is a conflict inside of me. To flee, fight or surrender is a common human response.
I am here to enjoy life, not fight for my point of view. My upbringing often challenges this belief. My days can be missing the ease and clarity wisdom brings. The challenges of reaching excellence — the best that we can be — leaves me spent at the end of each day.
The gift of wisdom sustains the best of me. It brightens my day’s path. It creates meaning like sparkling soda.
Most important is the effect of wisdom, sound thinking. It allows love to flow out from my actions — my smile, my words, my ease and patience with those who do not have or do not know how to utilize the wisdom gift.
Wisdom is the helping gift to my better, more peaceful world. Anytime love is allowed to flow, I am transformed into a better human being. I share lighthearted rather than dogmatically defensive or offensive.
Yes, I would like more wisdom for Christmas!
