What Christmas Means to Me

December 7, 2011 § Leave a comment

Rushing. Annoying holiday music. Endless gifts to wrap and tips to give. Deals to close. Pushing through the crushing crowds on the streets. Social things to plan and always feeling behind. Very behind.

So now you know: I am a Grinch when it comes to the Most Wonderful Time of the Year.

I blame the culture. Expectations are impossibly high and you can’t help but feel like everyone else has figured out how to enjoy the season in ways that you could not possibly achieve. And while my Holiday Edition Excel spreadsheet does keep me pretty organized, it does not keep me in the moment. No spreadsheet can do that — only the discipline to take a deep breath and slow it all down. I am going to give it a try this year. I hope you do, too.
