Winter Inspiration

Winter is an interesting season for me. I find this season full of polarities. It's a peaceful time and there is a great amount of work to be done; it's a dark time and we celebrate with lights; it's a cold time and yet, there is warmth all around; the days are short, but as a teacher and a basketball coach, not really. I'm definitely pulled in two directions during this time of the year. I want time to slow down so I can take in every moment with my family, listen to Christmas jazz on pandora while cooking with the kids, drive around and look at Christmas lights, and hopefully see some snow! This is also a time for exciting basketball games, competition, traveling all over for games, and teaching/coaching.

In the spirit of the season, here is a fun chalk drawing drawing of a peaceful winter landscape and a great motivational quote that I heard recently.

"Snowflakes are one of nature's most fragile things, but just look at what they do when they stick together."

Happy Holidays and Stay Warm!
