Do Your Part And Then Let It Go

There is only so much that one person can do in a day, in a week, and/or during the holiday season.
Do your part and then let it go....

This is a difficult concept to grasp on a long-term basis. We all seem focused on making our holidays appear awesome on social media. The emotional meltdowns, recipe fails, and/or other unforeseen events are carefully hidden from view.

We are tempted to go rogue during the holidays and handle every detail ourselves. By the time, the holidays are over...we are filled with resentment and fatigue.

Festering Resentment During The Holidays

The holiday season is upon us. Are you still  frantically buying gifts and  taking care of those last minute details?  In your heart, you know that for the majority of the people in your life, the thought means nothing. It is all about the gift.

You do not want to let anyone on your shopping list down because you will never hear the end of it. So, you go into debt or scrimp on your own household's needs in order to feed someone else's ego.

Years go by and the resentment festers within you. Until one Christmas season, you make the decision to no longer sacrifice your finances and well-being in exchange for someone else's approval.
