Today, as the holidays wrap up and the new year begins, avoid the tendency to make long to do lists and to accelerate your speed. Love's pace is steady, not frenzied. Today pause, ask, and listen for what is truly important, for what really needs your attention. If you receive an unexpected answer, don't second guess or argue against it. Prioritize those tasks which show deep love and respect for yourself and for others.
