We’ve all been there.  We love the holidays and the bountiful goodness that comes with them.  We long for simplicity and authentic celebration.  We have great intentions of not getting swept away in the chaos… but despite our best efforts, soon we are overcommitted, behind on preparations, burned out, and forgetting to enjoy the “most wonderful time of the year” (shoutout to Andy Williams, 1963).  We can find ourselves on autopilot in survival mode, viewing the holidays as one gigantic to-do list.  

Wow.  Are we ok with this? 

This year, with Joy Coach Robin’s guidance, let’s commit to simple strategies that deliver real joy throughout the holiday season.  We will prepare our hearts and minds together so that this is our most meaningful, most joyful holiday experience.
