Fact: I use to hate the holiday season.
I felt as though people were obsessed with gifts rather than spending time with those they love.
Then, I learned I do not have to be part of that. I have the ability to chose who I surround myself with and perhaps, I choose incorrectly in the past.
So, if the holidays all feel a little gross for you; you are not alone. I was there too. The good news, there are people out there more obsessed with spending time with loved ones than the monetary value of the gifts received.
You just have to decide where to spend your time (mentally, emotionally, and physically).
Happy Holidays, J
