I’m a single mom. People always ask me how I manage to do mom duties, work, run three blogs and publish 3 or 4 novels each year. My response? I just do it. And no, I’m not pimping Nike, or anything. Seriously, I simply get up, put on my happy face (cuz sad faces require too much effort) and roll with the program. There are folks out there having a much harder time than me. If I start thinking about how tough things could be, then I don’t get anything done that day.
What other things can you do to squash the Monday Morning Lag Hag Syndrome? I have a few suggestions to help you. You can choose to concentrate on the good times you experienced with your family. Hum Christmas tunes while showering. This is okay. No one will punish you for hanging on to Christmas after New Years.
Are you sick and tired of Christmas anything? Don’t feel bad. The spirit never really grabbed hold of me this year either. For those of us suffering from Grinch syndrome, then you can choose to talk to your significant other or your kids about the good moments you all shared during your time off. Surely there was at least one funny moment you can rehash.
Were the holidays stressful? Then talk about the trip or family outing you’ll be taking this year and start discussing how to work toward making that happen. No matter what you choose to focus on, try to make sure it’s positive and 2015 wish-oriented. Notice I didn’t say goal/resolution oriented. See my anti-New Year’s Resolution post for my explanation of how I feel about those.
Now head out into the world and remember you are an agent of fabulosity. Nothing can stop you today!
