*Welp, looks like the pressure is on.
Stores are opening on Thanksgiving Day and I have to say that I’m in the crowd of the outraged (well, maybe that’s a bit strong, but you get my drift).
With so much going on in our world, the need for human connection has reached an all time high in my book. We’re disconnecting by the minute and the holidays often provide a time for us to unplug and get to know the real people in our lives again. It’s a time for laughing, sharing, catching up, playing games and breaking bread together.
And to add to the excessive pressure and focus on giving just the right gift, comes the worry that our meals won’t be sufficiently tasty or otherwise enjoyed by those we are preparing it for. And, as if that isn’t enough, lob on the stress of having the house perfectly clean for the guests who are attending.
This year ditch the pressure of the perfect dish and opt for doing the best you can. Commit to just enough cleaning to make you comfortable and save your purchasing power to prepare for your financial future.
Let go of the pressure, enjoy the people and ditch the perfect dish.
