Weekend Wisdom: How something ends up never depends on how much you worry about it.
Let’s slow down now.
Reading by the tree in the morning before the sun comes up has become one of my favorite holiday traditions. My daughter inspired me to try it and it’s become a treasured time. It happens before email, before work, before cleaning, before it all. My December morning mantra is, “It can wait.”
We put so much pressure on ourselves when it comes to productivity, perfection and trying to juggle everything this time of year (on top of all of the regular juggling). The truth is that the juggling act is unsustainable so you have to decide. Will you put a few of the balls down or wait until they fall and break?
If they can wait, put them down.
P.S. Most of them can wait.
