We all like to have things just right; and the holidays can be a time to shine.
They can also be a time to stress over the little things.
Perfection is the bane of good enough. It is almost impossible for anything to be perfect, so ask yourself why you are obsessing over things that others may not even notice. If you are trying to impress someone, is perfection worth the stress it creates? Or do you intentionally nit-pick everything so you can avoid certain people that show up during the holidays? What is behind the perfectionism? What would life look like if you did not have the need to make everything perfect? Would it ruin your holiday; or would it actually give you the chance to relax and enjoy it more?
