The Mad Dash
Now that Thanksgiving is over, this week officially starts the Mad Holiday Dash! When I was younger, without fail, I would end up getting really sick the day after Christmas. I had emptied all my reserve tanks without even knowing. I put way too much on my plate and instead of trying to find balance, I would put more and more on, trying to do too much and try to be all to everyone.
It wasn’t until recently that I took a step back and realized, the Mad Holiday Dash is just that, a Dash, a race to nowhere. When I took that reflective step back, I realized that in order to be present for my family which is the real gift, I needed to be present to myself as well.
Each day, take a moment to make sure you are going in the right direction. Take time for whatever it is that fills your tank. Find that balance and be mindful of what really matters. When my children were young I would always tell them that is not the presents that are really important, but it is the presence ,that is what really matters.
