Gearing up for the Holidays

Have you ever noticed how things speed up as we get closer to the winter holidays? Rushing to get ready for holiday art shows, planning Thanksgiving dishes, traveling, shopping... It's enough to make me crazy sometimes. I'm about to enter the dreaded "chicken with my head cut off" phase, with about a week until my first show deadlines. But this year, this year will be special. This year I will make time to relax and enjoy the holiday season. Because nothing is worse than viewing the holidays with dread instead of anticipation.

Some things I plan to incorporate into my life, no matter how busy I get:

Lunch breaks
Good books
Guided meditation
Bellydance and/or yoga
Chocolate, red wine, and tea

How do you stay grounded when life starts getting crazy?


  1. Is that Promised Land State Park in Pennsylvania?

  2. It is Promised Land :)

  3. I spent my childhood and adolescence in or near that park. I love it there so much. Happy Thanksgiving, Diana!
