'Tis the season. The holidays are upon us and there is an undeniable festive vibe in the air. Maybe it's your traditions, maybe it's the red cups at Starbucks, twinkly Christmas lights or the holiday tunes you hear everywhere from the auto mechanic to the shopping mall. While life is always going to be fast paced, I am going to try to make a conscious effort this year to sit back an enjoy what the season brings. That probably means simplifying, but when you step back and look at the big picture that seems a little easier to do.
