I clearly related to this morning’s talk & It was so helpful. I also have to recharge after being around a lot of people for an extended period, and I find myself getting stressed out before the holidays because of the expectation of the family functions. I’ll watch the video again before Thanksgiving and before Christmas so maybe I can at least not dread the family functions. As a side note, I decided to look up the meaning of the word holiday. It’s definition is “a day of festivity or recreation when no work is done”. It’s origin is an Old English word meaning “holy day”... Much different from how the holidays during this time of the year are treated.

I'm excited to listen to this talk. I feel ya @Mary! It's like needing the vacation after the vacation....I need solitude after family. I love both, but so tiring!

I hope to meet you one day @Mary!
