Can you hear it – the Holiday music that sounds like the stress of cash registers, long lines, pushy advertisements, and sugar cookies?
I won’t ask WHEN the season of giving became the season of over spending, over anxiety, over over over EVERYTHING! I doubt any of us can remember a time – in our adult lives – that it was any different.
The key word here is ADULT. We get to make choices – we choose our bedtime, our dinner menu, and our television viewing. We are in charge of individual choices. Are we REALLY choosing any more wisely than we did or would have as children?
You have a few more days before the treadmill actually accelerates under your feet launching you into the holiday season of STRESS. YOU can make a different choice this year, you really can. It may be unnerving or even uncomfortable but you can choose to slow down, take a few deep breaths and consider what really matters… Blessings to YOU.
