Sustainable FAMILY!!!

The revolution starts at home…with you.

We’re starting a new tradition in our family….to celebrate all 12 days of Christmas, from December 26th to January 6th. I’d like to create something special to do each day with the hubby and kids but at this point nothing is rollin’ in the ol’ hamster wheel, so this year it might just be as simple as, understanding…

Understanding that Christmas is not about…

-being ‘Super’ parent
-buying CRAP
-1 up’ing your friends
-bitching, whining and feeling sorry for yourself
-anger, frustration, judgment and control

It’s not about you. It’s about everyone else…..anyone else…but YOU!

I encourage you to start something new this Christmas to bring your family closer together.

Maybe a day free of texting and social media?? I know…. It’s sacrilege!! But I swear it won’t kill you, I promise.

Write down all the numbers you’ll need now, then on Christmas morning turn off all the cellphones, tablets and computers, so there is no temptation to be tethered to that damn BEEP and TRULY engage with the people around you. Wether that’s family, a friend or a complete stranger it doesn’t matter….people need people.

Wish someone a happy holiday by actually making a phone call. Reconnect!! It’s a start to rebuilding a foundation.
