No matter how hard we try, no matter how each year after the holidays we say, “next year it will be different I will keep it simple. I won’t run around like a chicken with its head cut and each moment thinking of what’s next on “the list.”
Sound familiar? And guess what, when next year’s holiday season comes around, we do it all over again. It has to stop for our own sanity. We have to be able to take a deep breath in order to truly enjoy this beautiful time of year and enjoy all of the gifts it offers and I don’t mean those that we find under the tree, although those are great, too!
This week’s post comes from my favorite blogger, LAURA GASKILL (http://www.lauragaskill.com). Her suggestions are sure to strike a chord and give you ideas that really can give you not only a more joyous holiday season, but stay with you throughout the year.
My personal favorite is #1.
Ready or not, the holidays are here! If you find yourself wrapped up in the holiday bustle without a moment to pause, you are not alone. Between the gift shopping and wrapping, cookie baking, party throwing and tree trimming, it’s all too easy to let these precious weeks fly by without savoring the experiences we love. Commit to making this year different by setting intentions, rethinking traditions and letting go of things that you do not enjoy. Here are eight ways to get started.
Until next time…
Blessings from my home to yours,
Nancy
