Happy Holiday Wishes From Author & Author Coach Michael Larsen 



The holidays are a time for giving thanks for gifts that go on giving. Each of us is a unique, random, miraculous balance of nature and nurture. A middle-class American life makes it more possible for us than most people on this floating, amazing ecosystem to be grateful for having:


·         Friends and family you love who love you

·         A healthy lifestyle

·         Freedom

·         Food, clothing and shelter

·         Enough income

·         A spiritual practice

·         Access to technology

·         Mobility

·         An inspiring mission

·         Fulfilling work with people you like, respect and admire

·         A life that is a labor of love

·         Access to the knowledge and culture you need and want

·         Opportunities for self-improvement

·         A community that serves your needs and shares your values

·         The ability and chance to create and innovate

·         Opportunities to express gratitude with time, money and civic engagement

·         Reasons to celebrate

·         Daily time with nature

·         Reasons to laugh and smile

·         A balance between:

* yin and yang

* too little and too much

* desire and necessity

* your personal and professional life

* your time online and off

* analog and digital

* service and self-fulfillment

* possessions and experience

* change and stability

·         As simple a life as you can have so you can focus on what has lasting value

·         Optimism


May you find this life worth striving for this holiday season and ever after.
