How are you feeling right now?
If your family celebrates Thanksgiving, you might be feeling a little stuffed and sleepy, and that's okay! Winter is a time for rest and relaxation... we just need to make room for it, in the middle of all the holiday shopping - cookie baking - eggnog sipping craziness!
In Your Holiday Bliss Plan, Step 1: How to Start the Season with Comfort and Joy, we created our vision of a blissful holiday season;
with Your Holiday Bliss Plan, Step 2: How to Make It Meaningful, we identified the people with whom we choose to celebrate;
and in Your Holiday Bliss Plan, Step 3: How to Be Happy While It's Happening, we sorted through the activities that will build our bliss-factor and released the sense of obligation and requirement that all too often permeates the season.
I think we deserve a round of applause.
Okay, now it is time to pull it all together. It's time to make a plan.
Does my saying that make you feel a little queasy? The concept of planning affects each person differently.
For some of us, a plan provides a foundation of order and statement of intent from which miracles can happen.
For others, planning feels restricting and smothering. Take a moment to connect with your body and emotions. However you feel, just accept it.
Don't worry, I haven't forgotten my promise to make this easy and fun. In this step, I am going to offer two options. Choose whichever feels good to you. Let's get started!
