"You rarely have time for everything
you want in this life,
so you have to make choices,
and hopefully your choices
can come from
a deep sense of who you are."
We're all asked to do a lot of things. We probably say yes to things that we wish we hadn't, and with the holiday's approaching, it could only get worse. When someone calls and asks you to make 900 brownies in the shape of a Christmas tree, put them on hold, and make a decision right then if that particular activity will add to, or take away from what matters most to you. Prioritize. You have a choice. If you truly care about why Mrs. Cleaver needs 900 brownies for her upcoming meeting, then offer to purchase your share and drop them off. If not, kindly decline, then enjoy having more spare time for the things that matter to you. If you are saying yes just to please others, ask yourself this question....Why are we so willing to disappoint ourselves by not following through on the things that are important to us? Decide how you wish to spend your time, and stick with it. You will be amazed at how much better you feel and how much more energy you have for the things that truly matter.
"The main thing is to keep the main thing
the main thing."
