Getting You From AARRGH! To Aahhh…
Congratulations! You’re about to start on a challenge that could change your life!! Over the next 10 days, you’ll be receiving 10 how-to holiday guides to help you simplify, save money, and celebrate in a greener, easier way.
But before you get started, take a minute to think about what a Simple, Green Holiday means to you. What do YOU want to accomplish by the time you finish the challenge? What will make YOU happier and more excited that the holidays are coming? What will help YOU celebrate the kind of joyful, meaningful holiday you crave?
Like many people, you may be suffering through a holiday season that doesn’t look at all like the one you want. Being intentional is the key to having the kind of holiday you value. If you don’t decide what’s important, others will decide it for you. So take a few minutes now to set your intent. Choose your celebration. Don’t let circumstances or stress or outside forces choose it for you!
What Are Your Priorities?
There are no “right” or “wrong” answers to this question. This Priorities check-list has only one purpose: to help you focus on what YOU want to achieve. You are welcome to share your thoughts on the Big Green Purse Facebook page. Or, keep it totally private. What’s important is that you identify your priorities, and use the Challenge to help you achieve them.
What is your top priority for the holiday challenge? If you could change one thing that would make your holidays less stressful and more enjoyable, what would it be? What is your immediate “knee jerk” response to this question? Don’t take any longer than 30 seconds to answer.
