When you accomplish something you never meant to do you have the potential to reflect on it in a profound way, but only if you aren’t too busy to miss the opportunity.
Self-reflection may be the most important tool for living a life focused on living in the moment.
Living in the moment is a dream for most of us.
To be present.
When you get to know yourself better, you can appreciate your strengths, which you might otherwise be oblivious to. Realizing the right strength (that had been invisible to you) can set you free to live in a way that astonishes you in it’s goodness.
When you get to know yourself better, you can appreciate that your self-imposed limitations do not serve you, or others, very well. This is a blinding flash of the obvious. This also allows you to shed what is holding you back.
Ultimately, you accomplish something you never meant to do.

If there was no gift giving, what would Christmas mean to each of us?
And for how long?
Christmas in September? Society, through media and big budget marketing, has spent decades hyping up the Christmas gift giving tradition. Look at black Friday and cyber Monday after Thanksgiving. All intended to get us to spend a lot of money.
Yesterday and the day before I spent time, all of four waking hours total.
Time is money, and I spent as much as possible.
Four hours over two days doesn’t seem like much.
Compared to possibly never seeing them again, four hours was a jackpot.
