I was chatting with a colleague not too long ago and she said something to me that has really resonated with me - Working moms struggle the most between Thanksgiving and the New Year.
Society has created this image of the activities women should be doing for the holidays - baking, making extravagant dinners, shopping, wrapping, keeping track of the forced family festive fun or any other activities for any and all members of the family - it's A LOT!
Guess what?! We can't do it all - AND THAT'S OKAY! I certainly do not make extravagant dinners and in fact just the other night I threw cheese and black olives in a burrito wrap and called it a quesadilla. My girls were fed and everyone was happy! THAT'S what this is all about!
My advice to you - prioritize your and your family's needs, do what brings YOU joy, and let things go, especially when we can't control them!
Taking care of what YOU need is not selfish - it's allowing you to live your best life!
