I don't know about you guys but the holidays are Stressful for me (yes, that's with a CAPITAL S).
I have not mastered the art of 'being organized' and 'making the holidays magical' or any of that nonsense.
In fact, I made a Holiday journal in 2006 and after reading through a couple entries a few days ago as I was packing it away, I realize that I wasn't even good at Christmas Joy before I had 3 teenagers and a disabled mom that requires constant care....
My favorite time of the year is actually NOW -
...when the decorations are all put away.
...when the sweet treats and fat-laden cream cheese dips are history.

I LOVE NEW YEARS!!!

I get excited to incorporate new training into my daily work schedule:
I have fun setting goals, planning/organizing, and thinking of the possibilities - it's invigorating!
Nique and I will be posting our Team Meeting Calendar, setting Goals, establishing scedules and working on becoming more effective leaders and consultants in these next few days and weeks.
It truly is the most wonderful time of the year!
