And that brings me to what I want to say about the holidays. Sometimes, it's better to save your energy for what's really important--family.
Maybe you'll make some homemade gifts this year--maybe you won't. But if making everything "just right" comes at the price of missing time with family or even worse--becoming Grinchy toward your loved ones, then it's time to throw in the towel. I'm totally preaching to myself here. I wish I could say I'm just a pleasure to be around all of the time, but that's not the truth. Especially today.
Anywhoo, I'm taking this time to sit back, sip a cup of apple cider and reflect. During this festive season, I think rather than overbooking ourselves and wearing ourselves thin (though I usually wear myself more thick than thin during the holidays, dang you delicious food) we ought to sit back and enjoy more. Love more, stress less. Hug more, shop less.
And that's all I have to say about that.
Oh, and tune in tomorrow for some real awesomeness from Sarah of Sarahndipities.
