So when it all gets real crazy in December, find those moments in the season that bring you joy. It helps you slow down, even momentarily, to remember what this time of year is about and how to enjoy the wild ride of December.
Remember to take care of yourself during the holidays -- something I still have to remind myself to do! Time with loved ones is a gift -- don't waste it feeling stressed!

Are you feeling overwhelmed with all the work that you've got to do? There seems to be a million different things that need to be done. We feel overwhelmed and out of control because we don't know where to start. Should I start with project A? What about project B and C that need to be done as well?
