Oh my did I set myself up for failure planning to blog everyday during this holiday season. Obviously it isn’t going to happen. The holidays for are very busy days for so many of us, for me it isn’t so much the holiday as it is work. This is the the preparation season for my employer’s most significant event of the year. Already my days are long and most nights when I quit my stack of to-do’s is bigger than it was when I started. I am not complaining but it makes me thankful that we simplified our Christmas years ago. We participate in that which we enjoy and skip the rest.
That is my reflection today, what things can you skip? Does it take to much time and bring too little enjoyment for yourself or others? Is it money that you can’t really afford to spend? Do you do it because you always have or it is expected, what would happen if you did not do that this year? Could you skip one thing this year and would it make the holiday a little better for you?
