Flylady and Christmas Busy-ness

December 16, 2009

Thanks, in part, to Flylady’s Holiday Control Journal, I am not feeling at all overwhelmed about upcoming Christmas activities. Consequently, it stands out to me (much more than in previous years) when women start complaining about how busy they are this time of year and how stressed out they are. In the past, I may have agreed with them or sympathized. But, this year, I feel like asking them, “Why? Why are you allowing yourself to be overbooked with activities? Why are you succumbing to anything that makes this season stressful?” I want to assure them that they don’t have to produce some “perfect” Christmas memory for their families if it means they are stressed and upset in the meantime. I want to help them stop and examine what they are doing and why.

Wait…that’s Flylady’s job! I think I’ve been thoroughly Flywashed!
