One way to get through tough times or periods of hard work is to plan something to look forward to. That's what I did this morning. I looked at the schedule, consulted my family, and planned a special event a few months from now as a destination to look forward to, plan for, and focus on while I focus on the tasks at hand right now.
Also with the spirit of my brother in mind, I decided to follow my own words and plan something that honored his zest for life and love of family. Now that I've planned this event, it's time to get focused once again on the events and efforts of the day. Onward.
