There are many posts on Facebook and Twitter and in the newsletters of many motivational coaches lately harkening the end of the year saying things like “Oh-Oh, only this many days left to achieve your goals” “Are you where you want to be?”, “You’re running out of time”. This type of language is pretty much threatening us that if we don’t do it now or before the end of the year that we may never actually get it done. Is this true?
Does it Really Matter That It’s the End of the Year?
Frankly, I am not a big fan of ‘year-end, hurry up and get it done’ activity. I am very happy to wind down and enjoy the holiday season. I will admit that this is relatively new for me as of a few years ago. This doesn’t mean that I don’t believe in setting specific yearly goals and taking action to achieve them. It simply means that I now recognize that our lives and the years we live are a continuum that doesn’t end at midnight on New Years Eve.

Opt For a Happy, Jolly, Merry and Blessed Year End
You can do it! Let go of the pressure to perform and give yourself over to the merriment and joy that is waiting for you in the presence of your family and friends. Allow yourself to focus on the gift of holiday preparation and partying. Try a new recipe or two, sit on Santa’s lap, put up your favorite, beautiful (or even corny) decorations and be sure to reach out to those who mean the most to you.
January 1st Will Roll Around and Your World Will Still Be Well
As you allow yourself to relax into year end and the holidays or perhaps jump right in to the hustle and bustle, you will remind yourself that all IS well and that this year, just as the years before and the years to follow, is happening and passing in perfect timing and divine order. There is no other way!
Happy Holiday Season
Wishing you an Awesome Year End!
