Advent

Christians have this period before Christmas called “Advent”. The word derives from a Latin word that means “coming”. The theme is “to be ready”, to be on your best behavior, because although Christmas celebrates the first coming, it also serves as a reminder that we don’t know when the second coming will be and we must be ready to be judged on that day. So, be your best today because this is the day.

I’m humbled and proud at the same time, but I’m glad that I showed up ready on this day.

  1. Jeanne, I had a trainee earlier this year that believed in her heart that if she wasn’t miserable, she wasn’t working. Attending a business after hours couldn’t be working (even if she got results) because it was actually fun.I choose to be happy. I choose to have fun. I choose to avoid miserable, pissed off, chip on their shoulder, something to prove people even if that means that I can’t (or won’t) sell them. I know that the time that I’m here on earth is a speck in the grand scheme of things, but it’s 100% of my time here. Why can’t I enjoy it by dealing only with people that I choose to deal with?
