Hi SparkFriends -
It's a familiar feeling for some of us, come the holidays. In preparation for the "Busy Season," I thought this article was helpful.
My favorite passage:
I began to wake up to the idea that I actually do have choices. I can make decisions based on my preferences and needs instead of a sense of obligation.
I have a choice about how I respond to others’ demands. A choice about how I react when the tsunami of items on my to-do list threatens to overwhelm me. A choice about saying, “yes” to one more volunteer project or saying “thanks, but not now.”
