BUSY, BUSY, BUSY!!   

Does anyone else get so busy that they forget to breathe?

That is how I have felt over the past couple of weeks.

I have gotten so busy that I forgot to look at all the beauty around me

and appreciate the small wonders that are there everyday.

Shame on me!

By forgetting to appreciate the wonder I have let myself down.

I don’t think I let anyone else down but I know that I am disappointed

in myself for not hitting targets for myself.

Can I do better?

Yes I can.

Will I do better?

Yes I will.

The question then becomes, what can I change about what I am doing

to avoid what happened over the past two weeks?

I can learn to say no.

It might not sound like much of a change but learning when to say

no is a very important skill.

It requires thought and a level of awareness about your own time and

it’s value.

I allowed other people in my life to monopolize my time.

It was not that there needs were not important.

They were.

It was that it took time away from tasks that were more important.

So how do I say no too another persons needs and keep my needs

foremost without hurting others?

And there is the real question.

My friends have always been able to rely on me when trouble

comes their way.

I never say no when a friend comes to me for help.

But what about when I need help of one sort or another.

Most of my friends disappear.

Does that mean I have terrible friends?

Maybe, maybe not.

Who is to say.

I know that I have a couple out there who would do anything to help

me regardless of the circumstances but the rest will help when it fits

their time tables.

I am very appreciative of the few who will throw themselves in front of

the train for me.

Awesome folks.

The rest?

I am grateful to be able to share time with them when I can.

I am learning to say no to the right people at the right time and put

more energy towards myself.

Hard work it is!

So where have your challenges been the last little while?

Have you taken time for yourself?

Do you have your priorities in order?

Let me know how you are coping with saying no in your life!

I would love to hear how you meet this challenge and what

strategies you are using.

Too your health!
