Can You Find the ME in Merry?

Almost everything will work again if you unplug it for a few minutes, including you. Anne Lamott, American novelist

If you’re a woman, particularly if you’re a mother or grandmother, you’re closing in on THE week. The week of last minute gift buying, wrapping, baking, traveling, decorating, hosting—in short, creating the best Christmas possible for those you love. 

We want this to truly be a merry time. But, did you notice that there’s a ME in merry? Yep. How do you take care of the “me” while you’re making sure the holidays are as perfect as possible? If, by Christmas Day, the ME is bedraggled you’ve done too much for others and not enough for yourself. 

Affirmation: I will keep the ME in merry.

Coaching questions: How will you unplug this week? How much is enough? What will you do to keep the ME in MERRY?
