The holidays are a natural breeder for mom guilt. Really any busy season is, but there’s something about the Thanksgiving and Christmas season that seems to grow mom guilt at an alarming rate. The number of activities available to over-commit to, the pressure to make the season magical, the financial burdens, the family gatherings, and the list goes on and on. There’s always something you will feel like you aren’t doing enough of during the holidays. There will always be the fear that you are letting someone down. There’s always something to guilt yourself about.
Join me over on Just A Simple Home as I talk about how to deal with Mom Guilt through the holidays. Terryn with Just A Simple Home has organized a blog party for the entire month of November! Every day of the month a different blogger shares a different way to Simplify the Season.
My post is all about ways to deal with specific types of mom guilt throughout the holidays. I hit on financial guilt, commitment guilt, spiritual guilt, extended family guilt, and “making Christmas magical” guilt. I even added a free printable to help you let go of the guilt this Christmas! Head on over to Just a Simple Home to check it out! You can find all of the articles in the blog party on the Simplify the Season home page!
