There are both good and bad things that come with everything. And especially with tough choices. Do you want to skip all the hassle and get a Christmas getaway abroad or stay at home to spend time with family? In this post I explain how it feels during both of these scenarios in gifs.

This is the 4th post in my 12-Day Christmas Advent Calendar. Hope you enjoy it and happy holidays!
