It’s Sunday night, and I’m in the middle of making cupcakes for my youngest son’s birthday party tomorrow. His birthday is later this week. Tomorrow night, I will be going to the Christmas party for my work.
Earlier today, we went to a Solstice Celebration and potluck. Last week, I went to a surprise birthday party for a close friend of mine, and my middle son’s Christmas concert. And earlier this month was my husband’s birthday.
It seems like this time of year is exceptionally busy, and not just for me. Everyone I know has multiple events, invitations and gatherings. I also happen to be a last minute Christmas shopper, mostly because of the other events earlier in the month!
While Santa day looms up ahead of me, this year I am extremely grateful that I have my meditation practice and now my Life Coach to help me keep my balance and stay centered.
The feeling of overwhelm has threatened to, well, overwhelm me several times in the past few weeks. And I have been so much more able to catch myself as I start to drift into the anxiety because I start each morning with meditation and intentions.
And in my coaching session just this morning, my coach pointed out that I am accomplishing a lot, and I have more time to work on my projects coming up very shortly. Thank you, Hazel!
Oh, and hot chocolate helps too! 😉
What are you doing to keep your cool during the “silly season”?
