Let it go.
This season has been an ever constant reminder of what is important. Let me give you a hint, it isn’t perfectly baked cookies or a home made appetizer for ever party. I’ve been working this through myself and thought I’d share it with all of you hard working women who somehow manage to keep your worlds spinning in perfect order.
- Your business can take a break for a couple of days. Let it go.
This is a really hard call for those of you with huge business that seem to pile up if you go to the bathroom with out your phone. This is also hard for those of you trying desperately to build something from nothing and you don’t want to lose momentum. But, here’s the thing. You were biologically made to need a break. You’ll have new found energy afterwards and be able to add more attention after a couple days off. Your family needs you and will be thankful you put them first.
- You didn’t create all that Pinterest content (unless you did, which you probably didn’t) so let it be ok to look normal. Let it go.
Have you seen those really great Pinterest fail posts. Those are may favorites! Your family and friends just want to eat and be together. If it isn’t the most beautiful design, the prettiest cookie, the most clever packaging, it’s ok. Your tree, your decorations, your house, your love is enough. You don’t have to be Pinterest Perfect. Let the crafts be fun, the baking be a mess and the wrapping paper wait to be cleaned up. (Girls, these are words I’m writing straight to myself.)
- We Celebrate Christmas for a reason. Don’t let it go.
Christmas is the celebration of the birth of the Messiah. If you’d like to see what this Christmas thing is really all about watch this video then watch the live feed at one of the times stated.
