How To Survive The Holidays

It's that time of year again.

If you must travel, travel light.

But, if possible, stay home.

Unless you want to exhaust yourself...

...consider leaving the cooking to someone else.

If you have to entertain, keep it small.

If you can't keep it small, keep it civilized.

If you can't keep it civilized, at least keep it civil.

Should attempts at civility fail, you may have to enlist help.

You're going to need to be able to keep your wits about you.

You may be around people you don't get along with...

...Or even unwanted guests...

So try to pace yourself.

No, really. Try.

Or maybe eat out. Nothing bad could happen there, right?

Just remember, once it's all over...

You'll be back at work; back to the grind.

So look for the good amidst the stress and the pressure.

Give thanks for the ones you love and the ones who love you.

Be grateful for the ones you've missed and the ones who've missed you.

Give comfort where you can.

Find your own reasons for joy.

And remember every day is a gift.

Happy holidays.
