In a "Nesting arrangement" children will stay in the house while parents take turns living there. With all that is changing in the children's lives, one important factor remains intact: their home.
This holiday, we challenge you to pay attention to how many critical comments vs. spoken appreciations you share. Gratitude can celebrated every day, and it will open more joy and connection in your relationship than you ever dreamed possible.
If you can start seeing your place in the emotional workings of your family, then inch by inch you'll gain the space to start making thoughtful choices that are about you rather than just reacting. And who knows, you might even look forward to next year.
This year, we're doing something different. No forcing ourselves to muster platitudes when we really don't feel like it. No mumbling half-hearted blanket statements. No, this year, we're acknowledging head-on all that drives us crazy every day.
