“It’s the most wonderful time of the year. With the kids jingle belling and everyone telling you to be of good cheer…it’s the most wonderful time of the year!”
For some people, this holiday song that gets stuck in our head is true, but for many people instead of this being a wonderful time of the year, the holidays are hectic, stressful, exhausting, sad, lonely, and the list goes on and on. How is it for you right now?
Here’s what I’m observing
