It seems for the best of my intentions this Christmas week kind of snuck up on me and left me in a bit of a whirlwind and feeling overwhelmed.
The holidays can bring out the very best and the very worst in people and I am certainly no exception. When I take on too much, those closest to me tend to feel the brunt of it. Thankfully, I have a day to rest, regroup, relax and reflect today.
I think that's one of the reasons Christmas is followed by the New Year. Whether you're one to make resolutions or not, it is a time of new beginnings and fresh starts. I already have a list of things about myself that I am praying over. Ways to make myself a better person...kinder, less controlling and happier.
With all that said, I do still love Christmas and am looking forward to the next few days with eager anticipation. What about you? Have you managed to pace yourself or are you feeling the stress a little, too?
Happy Monday all!
