So, yeah – it usually happens right around this time of year; I’m headed into the grocery, rolling my eyes at the giant pumpkin display, because, really? With the levels of heat and humidity we experience in NC in early October, I’m surprised those pumpkins haven’t turned into pumpkin pie, baking on that hot tarmac. Then I catch it out of the corner of my eye. NO! No WAY they’re displaying Frosty the Snowman yard art when there’s yet to be even a hint of a leaf turning gold. It’s just. too. much. too. soon.
Despite the fact that I’ve orchestrated 42 Thanksgiving and Holiday celebrations for our family, spent 5 years as a professional caterer, written the ebook HOLIDAZED ~ how to slow down, spend less and restore sanity to the holidays, seeing Frosty share the stage with pumpkins still spooks me. Sadly the marketing strategy does its work; before you know it, I’ve worked my mind up into a frothy, pumpkin spice frappuccino frenzy of “not enough’s:”
… not enough time, not enough budget, not enough energy, not enough creativity
*Note to myself: you really should consider deleting your holiday Pinterest boards. They’re just adding to the stress.
Rather than flip out, I decide to flip on the AC, make a cup of coffee with pumpkin spice creamer ( for which I make an exception to my ban of all things pumpkin until October) sit down in a cozy chair and re-read my own book.
And immediately I remember what it took me all those years of holiday burn-out to learn:
I get to choose how to celebrate the holidays. And so do you. This book will help. Trust me. I haven’t bought a single present and I am totally chill. Even though it’s 85 degrees outside.
So let me ask you:
Do you begin December with high hopes and end up with holiday headaches? You’re not Scrooge, you’ve just lost your focus!
“Do MORE, buy MORE, decorate MORE, spend MORE, clean MORE, bake MORE….”
ENOUGH. IS. ENOUGH.
