How to survive the Christmas season.
There is no way one blog can provide the answers to that million dollar question. But here are two things to keep in mind.
Learn to say ‘no.’ Some families have many demands on them this time of year – family, neighbours, co-workers, teammates all want to celebrate Christmas with you and your family. You may have to decide if it is necessary to attend the work Christmas party when you are tired from the work week.
It doesn’t have to be perfect! Media has a way of making it look like everyone is having a perfect Christmas. It only takes a look through cooking websites to see everything that you SHOULD do to make a perfect meal. The perfectly decorated tree? That is just in the movies. Truly, is it life changing if the candles aren’t the right colour and the silverware is mismatched. Who says you even need candles?
Let Christmas be the time to STOP and REFLECT. Remember the wonderful things that have happened in the last year and let go of the things that didn’t go as planned.
