Episode #59 – Stop playing “Self on the Shelf”

The holiday season is fast approaching. The brisk weather, festive wreaths, and towering Christmas trees should top off the happiest season of all. But for many women – especially mothers – this festive period can bring on a whole new set of expectations that make the season less about enjoying fun and family, and more about pressure to create ‘the perfect Christmas’ for everyone else.

I call this silly game ‘Self on the Shelf,’ and too many of us are guilty of playing it.

So today, I want to challenge you to take yourself off the shelf, get into the holiday action, and find out what it truly feels like to fully-participate in the holiday traditions and experiences.

Here Are The Highlights:

  • How to still be the maker of ‘the magic’ while fully-participating in the fun and family experiences ([3:30])
  • How to give with generosity and receive graciously ([6:30])
  • A ‘magical’ mindset shift for effective holiday planning ([8:20])

You are not the Elf on the Shelf. You are a person. A real human being who also needs the opportunity to experience the magic of the holidays – not just create it for others.
