We rush here and rush there trying to make sure we find the right gift, visit with all the friends and family, squeeze in holiday parties and cookie exchanges, and all while trying to keep up the “holiday spirit.” It’s no wonder that by the time the new year arrives we feel exhausted, cranky and just done with everything.

Float that Boat!

B'SD (Whoops, I'd meant to post this earlier on Monday) A friend and I were chatting the other day and she spoke of feeling frustrated at not having achieved a goal.
