Me? Plan for Christmas? It’s too early!

Ok, I know what you’re thinking: we’re only in October and already talking about Christmas. I really don’t mean to shove Christmas in your face, but you might thank me later!

Now is the time to plan for the Christmas YOU want. That’s right, I know you have your own hopes and dreams about this holiday. Maybe you’ve turned in to more of a Scrooge lately because of some past difficulty around all the merriment.

Maybe Christmas reminds you of obligations to people you’d rather not be around. (We all have them!)

On the other hand, if you absolutely love Christmas and can’t wait to get started, this episode will equip you to be smart about your planning process and help you to make this holiday extra special for all involved.

The Best Tips to Plan for Christmas

Wherever you land on the festivity spectrum, let’s do our best to have an open attitude about the season of lights and joy and giving. Let’s stop focusing on what others want, and instead focus on what your family really needs.

Kathi and I will hit on some important points to ponder, like:

-What most women try to do around the holidays

-The 2 out of 3 things you can count on happening (and how wishing for more makes things hard)

-Why holidays are a hotbed time for worrying about what everyone else thinks

-How to get the Have-to’s before Thanksgiving, so you can do the Get-to’s.

-What not to worry about when you have small kids.

-Why getting everything on your calendar is so important

-Why tradition can be a trap

-The thing about that 7,000 foot roll of Costco wrapping paper (we exaggerate, but this one is funny!

You get to decide wear is important to YOU this Christmas. Pick up Kathi’s Christmas Project Planner and plan to have the best Christmas ever!

 “Instead of everybody else’s priorities, make sure your family’s priorities make it on your calendar.”
