Dreading Christmas already? The holidays can be overwhelming but you can have a Merrier Christmas if you’re willing to make a few, simple choices.  Expectations, family stress, grief, sickness, and financial issues are just a few of things that can derail your hopes for the holidays. I learned a few things in November—the hard way of course—that are changing how I’m doing December. I hope they help you, too.

A Merrier Christmas

I mentioned in the video that I’m a recovering perfectionist. It’s true! The “old me” would’ve definitely tossed this imperfect version of this video.

  • too many “ums”
  • getting distracted when I realized my notes that were out of order
  • the dog drinking water beside me

Just to name a few!

But I’ve had this message rolling around in my head and on my heart for a few days and I decided to share it, imperfections and all. Thanks for taking the time to listen and read.

Here are the two resources I mentioned:

  1. 5 Ways You Can Have a Merrier Christmas printable
  2. Calm My Anxious Heart: A Woman’s Guide to Finding Contentment.(affiliate link)

I’d love to hear from you! Will you leave a comment and share what you do (or don’t do) that helps you have a Merrier Christmas?

Here’s a image to pin.
