Happy Rationalization Season!
My fabulous friend Sarah and I have discovered a new reason to love this crazy time of year. It’s Rationalization Season! You can rationalize all kinds of indulgences with a shrug and a “Oh well, it’s the holidays.” I hadn’t seen the inside of a mall since the Easter Bunny was holding court, but this month I feel perfectly justified in reaching over the mountains of work on my desk to grab my keys for a fun mall run. And if Sarah and I happen to find ourselves at a mall café sipping cappuccino at four in the afternoon (oh who’s kidding who—we’re sipping Pinot Noir) we can justify that with a ‘tis-the-season toast. I’m indulging right now in a festive Disney getaway with my kids. We deserve it! Bottom line: You can let the extra stress and holiday blues get the best of you, or you can choose to make the season a reason for tinsel-twinkling self-love! Go the Juicy Joyful route.
