Tis the season to make memories! For many, it can feel like a season of stress and chaos. I wanted to share a few tips to hopefully make it more enjoyable!
- Cherish the amazing relationships in your life and worry less about who may or may not like you.
- Reach out to those you have not talked to this year and let them know that you are thinking of them.
- Have empathy and compassion for others. Don’t judge; you don’t know where they are on their journey.
- Always build people up rather than break them down.
- Be the spark that lights a fire in someone else this season.
- Stop sweating the small stuff – dirty footprints on a polished floor, grubby hands marking a crisp linen shirt as they encircle your waist in a hug, bad hair days, less than perfect make-up, expression lines deepening as your face starts to reflect life’s experiences – none of that matters in the big picture.
- Laugh more, love more, forgive often, smile, be spontaneous and, at times, even impetuous, cry when your heart is breaking, and reach out when your heart is overflowing.
Wishing you a wonderful Holiday Season!
