It is ten days from Christmas, and I am already exhausted. I decorated the house, shopped for all the groceries to make holiday candy and cookies, designed and ordered the Christmas cards, all while planning and shopping for everyone’s gifts. I still need to address and mail the cards, wrap the presents, get someone to play Santa, and plan and prepare Christmas Eve and Day dinners for both familes.
My kids are busy with school, and my husband doesn’t really get into the holidays like I do. I just wonder how I can get a little help.
I felt tired just reading about all you do for the holidays, and you actually DO it.
What would happen if you took four things off your to-do list; the four you enjoy least. I’ll bet when you look in the mirror you don’t see Super Woman. We humans have limits – we truly cannot be all and do all for everyone we love. Don’t be critical of others for not helping, it is your choice to do so much.
Write this on a sticky note and put it on your refrigerator: “Do less, enjoy more!” It could change your name from exhausted to excited!
