How to not have a stressful holiday

Oh the Joy’s of the holidays. When we were kids there was never a stressful thought running through our minds. Just the joy and excitement of seeing family and playing with cousins we haven’t seen in some time. Then we get older and the excitement slowly fades to anxiety and stress.

“Aunt Becky’s coming, I hope I don’t over cook the Turkey again.”

“Grandma will be here, I hope I can clean the house to her likings” (all while tiny human children are running through your house like a pack of wild animals)

Then, it will all be over and you may have some hair left along with a little sanity. But, not this year, this year put your mind back into your childhood self. Be excited to see everyone and don’t worry about what someone may say or think. Enjoy that dry turkey along with Aunt Becky’s look of disgust. Don’t even blink an eye when the kids come running in flinging dirt everywhere. It’s fun, let’s have fun. The holidays aren’t so stressful when when we get back to our child like minds and just having fun…. oh yea, don’t forget the wine or beer (whatever your poison) that helps too!
