The only thing scarier to me than something ending is a new thing just beginning, which means I’ve been on edge since November. If you’re like me, you’re balancing holiday planning with wrapping up year-end business, while getting extremely introspective about where you are and where you want to be. If you actually ARE me, you’re running on gingerbread and anxiety. Don’t be me if you can help it.
Remind yourself that the world isn’t ending. With a little preparation, the New Year doesn’t have to be terrifying. Follow these steps with me and let’s get through this final week. –ADAMJK
