“Tis the Season to be…”
Tis the season to be jolly while planning holiday events for your family and friends, gift shopping, attending holiday and end-of-year celebrations, as well as attending and planning PTA meetings, implementing PTA programs and events, and carrying out all the other volunteer commitments you made. Whew! Oh did I forget to mention preparing your home for the holidays which of course includes cleaning and decorating? What? You have your own business? What? You have a job outside of the home? What? Your three-year-old child wants an IPhone, IPAD, or Galaxy just like his friends? Calgon, take me away!!
Chances are this busy lifestyle is in high gear all year round throughout all the seasons. Yes, it is accelerated during the fall and winter holiday seasons which now begins in August, and is exacerbated by pre-season Target holiday commercials airing in October and store holiday décor in September at Macys.
Our world has become extremely fast-paced, and it is ever so important that you take this holiday time when our schools are closed, when there are no meetings or regularly scheduled activities to really live in the moment of whatever it is that brings you happiness, laughter, love, and satisfaction, so that you have the energy and motivation to give your all (like you are doing now) to everyone and everything you have chosen to commit to. Time with your loved ones and time for yourself to regenerate is extremely important to the balance of life.
“In the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.”-Abraham Lincoln, 16th President of the United States
