One wonders why we have three major holiday’s in just over a one month window. Two of the three are known to cause headaches, stress, turmoil and are guaranteed to bring up old and forgotten family issues.
So why on earth do we put ourselves through that. Maybe that’s why New Years Eve is such a big deal. When we finally get there, we celebrate and hear resounding cheers of “Thank god that’s over”.
Each one thinking that the other is cheering for the turning of the calendar but silently we say, “OMG, it’s finally over”
But the reality is this. It never has to be this way. We let it happen to us as we dive into the turmoil of the moment. Life is too short. The rude and nasty need not apply. Take your attitude to the in-laws. Get over yourself.
Or take my advice. Take a break from the most stressful holiday season. Leave them behind and find a new tradition. Start something just for you.
Go south, go north, take a break in your own back yard. Leave the work to someone else, relax and have fun.
That is our goal here at the PineCrest. Take the hell out of the holiday. Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years. It’s all here at your finger tips.
