Recently, I have been asked repeatedly if I am done with holiday shopping. Well as a matter of fact, I am pretty much done. I used to be the person who engaged in “last minute shopping.” Truthfully you could find me Christmas Eve or sometimes Christmas Day (hello Walgreens) at the store shopping. I never even considered this as “last minute.” What I did not realize was, I was scrambling to get it done on the 24th and 25th. If I am going to be truthful, I was stressed. I have found that when I plan better in my holiday shopping AND my life, I feel calmer.
This holiday, I am on the search for peace: inner peace and peace around me. I am planning in a way that is not overly scheduled, but is honoring of what I and my family want do. This year my plan is also including rest and relaxation.
