'Tis the Season

It's officially December, so you know what that means: 'Tis the Season! (which for many, started on Black Friday...and for others began as soon as Halloween got over!)

I have a complicated relationship with Christmas. It an amalgamation of packed wish lists and added "to do's." Trying to make everyone happy while battling the question of "do we really need more 'stuff'?" Transportation issues to try to figure out who we can see and when...especially when state lines and long distances are at play. Memories of Christmas past and people who have passed. But there's also the lights, the love, the joy in people's faces, and the deeper meaning of the season.

My guess is that I'm not alone in this holiday sleigh...regardless of whether it's Hanukkah or another holiday that's people are celebrating.

Regardless of the holiday that speaks to your heart, customs, and traditions, may this message be the one that centers you and brings you back this year and helps you embrace the season ahead with simplicity and gratitude.
