Every year I hear about how to be less stressed during the holidays, and in my judgmental way I think to myself “People who are stressed during the holidays need to re-prioritize.”
These things have a way of coming back and haunting me. I left for a week and when I came home Christmas was 12 days away.
I had such grand plans, high aspirations, big dreams. And now with each passing day some of my best intentions are crumbling by the wayside. And I am finding the holiday season less enjoyable because it is not living up to my expectations.
Now I will just judge those stressed out people not because their priorities are off, but because they didn’t plan well.
I’m glad I learned my lesson.
