Holiday Rush

Filed under: John Morgan's Blog — John Morgan @ 8:03 am

I was at the post office yesterday with millions of my neighbors.

It was busier than an “All you can eat” buffet after THE BIGGEST LOSER finale.

When I was about 3rd in line, John, the postal worker yelled over to me and said, “Can you hypnotize me to think I’m on the island of Tortola?” I asked, “Is that so that you don’t have to be here?” He laughed.

Then The Grasshopper appeared out of nowhere and said, “You can only get there by being here.”

John paused and said, “That is so true.”

The reality is you have to go through here to get to wherever there is. How many moments do we miss getting there?

When we live our lives like that, the “there” experience is anti-climactic. That’s because when we get there, we are so in the habit of being elsewhere that we miss that coveted experience too.

It’s the holidays. Getting to the official date is not the mission, just like the mission in dancing is not to get to the end of the song.

Take in all the moment has to offer and watch your holidays get brighter.

Getting there is a mission; being here is mission accomplished.

Sing along with the Christmas songs on the radio; let someone in traffic; put money in Salvation Army kettle. Slow down and savor the moment. It’s the only one that’s guaranteed.

Whoever said “You can’t get there from here” was sadly mistaken. It’s the ONLY route.

All the best,
