This time of year is traditionally the time for indulgence but lowering our guard too much can cause us to lose our way on our journey of personal growth. So before the turkey, before the lights, the trees and the mistletoe let us take a moment and remember what we are working towards.
By focusing on what we really want to accomplish in our own lives we can save our willpower for things that coincide with those goals. If we are working on financial issues we need to keep a close eye on our budget and not overspend on presents. We may have to turn down some holiday invitations or just work with what we have. If we are working on controlling our weight we need that will power to not have that glass of eggnog or rich desert. No matter what the goal we need to keep it in mind throughout the season.
