We Break for Winter: How Will You Skate?

skate-273122_640When we were kids, my younger sister and I spent just about every day after school during the winter months ice skating. Our town turned a local field in a park into what we consider heaven: A skating rink. Round and round we skated, oblivious to cold and the setting sun.

Looking back, I think: Skating is such an awesome skill; it’s like running on a thin blade across a slippery surface. It’s quit a balancing act.

Just like caregiving, one of life’s greatest balancing acts. So, today, take some time to consider what you’ll change or learn or adjust so that you can glide through your day as best you can. Perhaps you will let go of an unrealistic expectation, move past a hurt that ruins your day or adjust a schedule so you have some time for yourself.

So, today, how will you skate?
