I am going to keep this post short and sweet, but I'm hopeful that it will spur some good discussion at a time where we can be preemptive about "enough." The holidays are looming and there is always so much to do. Every year I sit back in January and tell myself, "Next year I'll enjoy it more. I won't make it so busy." But each year, I somehow manage to do too much and run myself ragged in the name of "holiday." Maybe now is the time to sit down and think about the top 10 things that really matter. What do you most enjoy doing? What can you live without this season? Who do you want to spend your time with? How much shopping/cooking/crafting is absolutely necessary to your enjoyment of the season? Example. Christmas cards. Does anyone appreciate the fact that you've hand-stamped and tied ribbons on each and every one? Probably not. So unless that is something you thoroughly love and will rejoice in having done come January 1... skip it.
I try to keep life simple: love like you mean it, laugh like you are enjoying it, and stand up for what you believe in. My hope is that here you'll find laughter, passion, and a few random topics that you just might be glad you stumbled on.
