Happy Thanksgiving! Although Thanksgiving was last week, I'm still hanging onto the feeling of gratitude -- I hope you are enjoying a sense of appreciation as well.  No matter what challenges we face, it is always a good idea to count our blessings to help keep things in perspective. :)

This month's newsletter has a wide variety of topics, but a lot of them focus on relationships.  This is helpful because although the holidays remind us of our blessings, they can also bring some tricky relationship dynamics.  The good news is that many of these dynamics respond very well to boundaries that are relatively simple to set-- this month's newsletter has a few articles to offer ideas!

Wishing you a safe, warm, and wonderful holiday season!  As always, please feel free to hit "reply" and share what you'd like to see covered in next month's newsletter, and let me know if you'd be interested in a free livestream on how to handle holiday stress!
