Being Flexible

Hope you all are enjoying a wonderful holiday season! One of my best casual-wear purchases was this reversible black and red zip (fake) down vest. I can wear it either on the red or black side. Then I can wear either a white/off white turtleneck under it, or a red/black/grey/white long sleeve. So many variations! I procured it and the off-white turtleneck at Goodwill. I've definitely gotten my money's worth.

I like the idea of being flexible during this time of year. I've learned over the years that being flexible can really allow me to be so much more relaxed during the holidays. Writing a list of people for whom I'm purchasing gifts on a post-it note in my datebook with their sizes has helped me to stay organized. I tune my car radio to the station that plays Christmas music and sing along--this ALWAYS improves my mood! Also, to keep it simple, I remember my friend Abys( saying "done is better than perfect".
