I can’t believe it’s already December. It feels like my book just came out yesterday, not eight months ago. It’s been such a wonderful experience and I want to thank all of you for being my biggest cheerleaders. It’s honestly because of you that The Myth of the Nice Girl made Amazon’s Best Books of the Year!

I love this time of the year for so many reasons. First, the holidays. Yes, all the prep work can be stressful, but it’s also such a wonderful opportunity to hit the pause button on work and just nestle in with your family. I love watching my boys get in the holiday spirit and I love searching for the perfect gift for everyone on my list (see my picks with great discounts below!).

It’s also annual review season and a chance to reflect on everything you’ve accomplished this year. I’ve found that sharing and receiving feedback is so important on your professional journey—in fact, my latest column on Refinery29 helps one first-time manager navigate the ups and downs of delivering tough feedback. You want to be constantly learning and growing so go into the New Year with that mindset and focus on positive resolutions—don’t try to fix “bad habits” or create lofty goals that are unattainable. I have to remind myself of this, too! Celebrate the wins, brush off the losses, and give your support system a great big hug.

Happy holidays!
