Bakeries start stocking up, there are pies on window sills, mugs are topped with hot cocoa. Caution goes out the window and we stop fighting against the holiday spirit and put on the notorious burden we regret as soon as the New Year dawns: holiday weight.

I find it's easy to get lost in the "to-dos" and simply stay "busy" and then get stuck in the mentality of not having enough time. So, what if we instead, decided on what our priorities were and stay true to those things? What if we committed to putting our energy & TIME into those top priorities?
