December 2018 Newsletter: Be the Gift | Website Update | Featured Listings

This time of year we all tend to reflect a little. We try to take in life, to focus on the important things, to spend time with friends and family, and to plan for a more successful and enjoyable future.

But with that a lot of us can become stressed during the holiday season.

We’re stressed because we can’t get all our errands run, we are missing loved ones, or we are frustrated that we didn’t meet the goals we set for ourselves this year.  We can’t find the right gift, enough gifts, the house isn’t clean for guests, and we ran out of sugar for yet another batch of cookies. There’s travel, and parties, and you can’t believe you didn’t lose that weight this year.

The winter itself can be hard, but the expectations of the perfect holiday season combined with the pressures we place on ourselves for performance can definitely add to the struggles.

One thing I’m really trying hard to work on right now is to quit aiming for perfection, and to give myself a break. I’m definitely not perfect, and I never will be. But I can continue to wake up and do my best, to focus on who I want to be, and to keep taking steps in that direction no matter how often I fall.

So this year we encourage you to give yourself a break as well, because you too will not be perfect. We know you want to create the perfect Christmas for the kids, to have the house perfect for your visiting friends and family, or to get the perfect gift because it comes from your heart, but as my wife always says, the real gift is you….you are the gift, and you will always be the gift despite all the struggles you will face.

So give yourself a break and go be the gift this season. Be the gift to strangers, to your friends, family, and most importantly, be the gift to yourself.

Wishing you all the best for a wonderful holiday season in which you find time to recharge, reset, and take in all the wonderful things that truly matter in life.
