I’ve been doing the holiday hustle lately.
Its a lot like Dancing with the Stars. Except no fancy outfits. No televised appearances. No trainer teaching me the steps. Instead, it was all me, all the time, doing the hustle, fox trot and two step to the sounds of Christmas music, long lines and cash registers ringing.
I love the holidays. It is by far my favorite time of year. I love the baking, the wrapping, the holiday music, the lights, the trees, the decorations and the overall magic of the season. Yes, the magic. I hope you see and feel it too.
I don’t love the holiday hustle though. I don’t love the excessive consumption associated with the holidays, whether it is food, alcohol or presents. This time of year signifies overindulgence. In fact, it encourages overindulgence. I spent a little too much time overindulging and feeling stressed by the hustle and “things” and not enough time enjoying the magic.
I did manage to sneak some of the magic in though but next year I hope for more magic….less hustle.
Enjoy the magic. Enjoy the hustle. Enjoy the new year.
