Well, the holiday season is upon us. I haven't even finished my nice four and a half day Thanksgiving weekend and I'm already dreading the week ahead and the busyness it will bring.
I love this time of year. The decorations. The music. The shopping. But there always seems to be so much going on, it's hard to really enjoy the season. In an already busy life, things seem to get even busier.
So I've been thinking about what I need to let go of to give me some peace. It's hard to choose. My writing's already suffered. I can't remember the last time I sat down and was able to put some quality and quantity on the screen. I don't see my husband enough as it is between meetings and practices and basketball games and countless other things. There's not much I can cut out of my day job...those hours are pretty much set in stone.
There have been recent articles and presentations about managing your time during the busy holiday season. Trouble is, I've been too busy to really sit down and take any of that in.
So, how do you do it over the holidays? How do you fit it all in - jobs, writing, family, friends, etc. - and still have time to enjoy this most wonderful of seasons?
Until next time,
