▪️As we approach the holiday season, that sense of “overwhelm” rings as loud as the Salvation Army bells.🛎
For some of us, the holiday season represents stress, pressure, expectations, guilt, disappointment, pain, loneliness, exhaustion and the list goes on…
And it doesn’t have to be that way!🤷🏽♀️
✔️We can choose who we spend time with.
✔️We can choose what activities we say YES and NO to.
✔️We can choose where we go. (if you are not on lockdown )
Your holiday season can be as straightforward or as elaborate as you choose to make it, and it can be a lot of fun if you plan accordingly…
So take some time this week to think about who/ what’s most important to you this season, and then do a little planning…
📋Make a list of those you want to spend time with during the holidays:
You are NOT obligated to spend time with people who make you feel uncomfortable.
Who nourishes you:
This can be neighbors, church members, etc. remember it may not always be family, and it’s ok 👌🏾
Who brings you down:
Maybe this is not the year to get together with them! Don’t feel guilty or let them guilt you into being someplace you don’t want to be.
▪️As you prepare for the holidays, remember that the greatest gifts of all won’t be found under the gift wrap…
