"It's never too late to be what you might have been." ~ George Eliot
Do your holidays seem to be less than what you’d like them to be? Sometimes in our pursuit of the perfect holiday season, we push our pocketbooks and ourselves to the max. Then we discover we do not like who we have become in the process. And at the same time don’t seem to be able to make the transition to a simpler and probably happier way.
If the holiday season is NOT one of your favorite times, the first thing to do is identify what you DO NOT want this year. Each of us feels differently, but some things you may not want are: the stress, the constant “busyness”, the loneliness, the spending of money you don’t have, being with family, not being with family, or the extra work of entertaining and shopping. The second thing to consider is what DO you want? A vacation, time to rest, time with God, time with family? Then list 6-7 priorities and stick to them! These are the things you absolutely do want. These are the things you feel will bring joy back into your holiday season. I call this your MAP (My Absolute Priorities). Look at this MAP on a daily basis.
Here are some suggestions:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Who hires a coach? People who want to reach goals, make changes, solve problems and see possibilities.Those who know they want more in their lives than they are currently experiencing. A coach is a success partner, an advisor, and at times a cheerleader. A coach will hold you accountable so that you can realize and be all that you are meant to be.
