We all fulfill several roles in our lives. During the holidays, those roles can serve as vehicles to help us sink more fully into the joy of the season or as taskmasters that drive us away from the meaning of this time of year. I’m a mom, a marathoner, a mate, and a musician in addition to having an exciting and engrossing job with a tech start-up.

What are your roles and your priorities within them? This article can give you some ideas and tips to consider as you answer that question.
