I feel as if today is the day to take a deep breath and “get back to business.” Routine is a thing of the past these days but there are things that can be routinized like prayer, sleep patterns, and food intake. Since those activities are often disrupted at holiday time, it takes a bit of effort to get back to normal. A quote from Eleanor Roosevelt in Alan Cohen’s daily reflection (A Deep Breath of Life) will help, I think. Maybe it will offer you an opportunity as well.
Do whatever comes your way to do as well as you can. Think as little as possible about yourself and as much as possible about other people…put a good deal of thought into the happiness that you are able to give.
