Life Goes On – Open Thought Vortex

Categories Family, Home, Life, Love, Self

Here we are, deep in the thick of the most celebration-filled time of the year. This week between Christmas Day and New Year’s Day always seems a bit…off. Business hours and traffic patterns are altered, school and the associated school bus schedules are suspended, and I never quite know what day it is (or even what time of day). It feels both comforting and unsettling all at once.

Something else I find both comforting and unsettling is the role of tradition in my life. Tradition is something we cling to and rely upon, and yet we all encounter periods in life where our traditions evolve from what we have known into what will be as we move forward in life. The mix of emotions that results is understandable, and inevitable perhaps, as life surely moves on.

Join me over at Open Thought Vortex today for more thoughts on tradition. (Yes, I’m awfully late in getting this up here on the blog – told you I don’t know what day or time it is!)

And whatever your traditions, may they be a source of comfort in this often unsettling world.

Lisa A. Listwa is a self-employed writer with experience in education, publishing, and the martial arts. Believing there was more to life than punching someone else’s time clock and inspired by the words of Henry David Thoreau, she traded her life as a high school educator for a life as a writer and hasn’t looked back. She is mother to one glorious handful of a daughter, wife to the nicest guy on the planet, and reluctant but devoted owner of three Rotten Cats. You can find her adventures and thoughts on living life deliberately here on the blog.

Conversation is the best part of blogging. I'd love to hear your thoughts...
