🎄 Man-o-man is this a delightful time (and a busy one!). Am I right?
Between the travel ✈, parties, shopping, decorating, wrapping, and community events it’s no wonder this is one of the most overwhelming months of the year.
My question to you is… How do you feel?🤔
Are you over-committed, exhausted, overwhelmed and/or burnt out?!?
It’s typical. With so many added events and responsibilities, it is easy to feel that way.
But is it worth it? 😕
Seriously, I know how easy it is to think we don’t have a choice in this matter. 😢 To feel obligated to attend, volunteer and to say YES in the spirit of things.
But at what cost?
It is so easy to forget we can say no. 💪 To forget we can slow down, breathe and actually enjoy the holidays 🎁.
This year… I chose to enjoy some much needed time off. Currently, I am hanging out in ❄ North Carolina ❄ with my dad playing games, drinking eggnog and going on walks! ⛄ At home, I’ve been sleeping in till 8 (which is late for me), hanging out in my PJ’s till 10 and doing the bare minimum with my business.
This is SO WEIRD for me, as I am a busy-bee go go gadget 🕵 kind of gal! Typically I ramp up work, say YES to every party, volunteer as much as I can, and spread as MUCH holiday cheer everywhere I go.
But not this year. 📅
This year my primary goal is to recover, relax and enjoy. AND BOY is it needed. You might not know this, but sometimes it’s better to do nothing then it is to fill the void with something.🎉
To help you shift into a state of joy 🤗, check out this week’s Mind Right Monday (MRM) where I talk about “Doing nothing is sometimes better than doing something.”
And be sure to let me know what you think! I love 💖 hearing your comments, ideas, stories and suggestions!
Until next time, Happy Holidays 🎄!
