Ok everyone, big sigh...it's mid November and the holiday season is quickly approaching. What better time to take a moment and think about you!
I know it's a little early for New Years resolutions and I'm not personally a big believer in them. They are always the same: lose weight, work less, and read more. The only New Years resolution I remember keeping is one I made in 1990...it was to wear my seat-belt.
Before the craziness of Christmas fully hits, take some time to think about what you want to do over the next few months...not what is expected (you already know what’s expected). Spend some time and reflect on what you really enjoy doing. Instead of running around like a crazy person, picking the perfect gifts for everyone (really, does that Aunt you see once a year, need the perfect gift or are the Girl Scout mints ok?), take a few hours and focus on you! Stop and think, read, scrap, or spend some time with someone you love. Do what makes you happy!
Now are you ready to find the time to do more of what you love?
Karen Gruenberg is teaching Reclaiming my Time starting December 3rd. In this workshop, Karen will guide us through figuring out what we really do with our time, and aligning our time with what we would like to do with our lives.
Here’s your challenge for this week. Share with us in the comments below one thing you dislike doing, but continue to do every holiday season. We will randomly pick two responses for a free seat in Reclaiming my Time to help you break that habit and enjoy your time. Winners will be announced Wednesday (11/18) at 10am PST!
One thing I dislike, that I’m not doing this year: Christmas cookies. I love making cookies but I hate the pressure of making twelve-billion-dozen for Christmas. So, I’m scaling back this year. I’m making sugar cookies (with the colored dough from the school sale), snicker doodles (my husband’s favorite) and chocolate chip (my favorite). And with my free time, I’m starting that Wally Lamb book I just bought.
