I'm creating a "no-need-to-do" list that includes these things:
*No need to make anything look perfect: Banish Norman Rockwell and bask in my own norm.
* No need to stop taking care of myself during the holidays: the more I take care of this body, the more I have to give to every body.
* No need to buy gifts out of obligation; give my attention and presence always. Give gifts when it feels organic and free.
* No need to say yes when I feel a "no" inside of me: listen and act from my own truth.
* No need to let the ghosts of holidays past haunt me: bring my spirit into this day, now.
*No need to save celebration for specially-marked days: do it, say it, wear it, give it, be it … NOW.
