Realizing that you can’t do it all frees one up to experience the moment. For two months, my plate of responsibilities has been overflowing, and as odd as it sounds, the upcoming holiday season will be a welcome reprise. I’m slowly peeling items off my “do it all” list, knowing that those commitments must be served up “family style” for others to enjoy. Some of those obligations, I brought on myself by saying “yes” to good things, but good things that I should have saved for another time. I’ve learned the hard way what happens when the plate dumps, and clean up is not enjoyable.
As the holiday season approaches, are there any items you can remove from your full plate before it dumps at an inopportune time?
