With the hectic holiday season upon us, we can get so wrapped up in all the details that we don’t enjoy life’s special moments. I don’t know about you, but I’m doing all I can this year to make this Thanksgiving and Christmas meaningful for my family.
So instead of sharing a cleaning tip today, I wanted to share some words of wisdom a friend passed on to me recently:
If friends and family are coming to your home to celebrate this season, it’s your job as the hostess to set the tone for the day!
If you are stressed, your guests will feel stressed.
On the contrary, if you are happy and relaxed, your guests will be too!
Don’t worry about the cleanliness of your home. Chances are they won’t notice that cobweb in the ceiling anyway. Don’t worry about the cranberry sauce you forgot to make. Your guests will have plenty of food anyway. Don’t worry if you feel frumpy. Put on a happy face and show your great personality. That’s why they like you anyway!
So put on a big smile, relax, and enjoy a stress-free day with your family. Just think, if you burn the turkey, at least it will be a long talked about memory for years to come!
