Holiday help and other great posts
It’s time for me to get link happy again with some excellent posts I’ve read over the past couple of weeks. And while a few of them offer some excellent holiday help I’d like to also just pause for a quick moment to offer you a different bit of holiday encouragement as we lead into the Christmas season. Ladies please hear me. Slow down. Whatever you are planning, however many pages your list may be, do yourself a favor and scratch something off that list right now. Believe me, I’m talking to myself here as well.
The holiday season won’t be as much work if you have less gifts to buy, less cards to mail, less parties to attend and less decorating to do. That might sound Scrooge like to some but what I replace my time with is so precious to me. Relaxing at home with my family, playing board games, watching movies, singing Christmas carols. What’s important to you? Slow down, simplify, relax. The days will pass regardless of how stressed we are so why not go through this holiday season wearing a different attitude. Either way you’ll get to the other side. How do you want to remember the journey?
