Holidays bring up a lot for many women. It can bring back fond memories of childhood, the joy of being around loved ones, and it can also be a time of grief, past hurts, and thoughts of obligation to others. What ever the holiday time is for you may you give yourself permission to take care of yourself, set boundaries where needed (even if uncomfortable), and create downtime and rest.
