Practicing what I preach, I am making time for me in the moorings – not just killing time before I go to my office. Face-to-face time with my wife. Breaking bread with a friend. Reading. Playing guitar. Savoring a nutritious, delicious breakfast. Today, I am glad I made the decision to make myself a priority, giving myself quality mornings.

One of the games my wife and I really enjoy is called Phase 10.  She and I are good at making a point of connecting each evening and spending quality time together.  There were a couple of times where things could have turned in a negative direction but I kept reminding myself that it is not about the game (winning, losing, misunderstandings about rules).  What IS important is relationship and feeling connected.  Because that was the focus, that was the result.  Today I appreciate playing Phase 10 giving me an opportunity to keep my mind active and connect with with my wife.
