So how did your goal-setting going for 2012? December was an overwhelming month for me as I took on way more than I could handle, and ended up burnt out and exhausted. I could not wait for the holidays to be over and things to return to normal. I did accomplish almost everything on my “To Do” list, but not without a lot of unnecessary stress. I hope your holidays were better than mine, and that you were able to enjoy them stress-free!
