The first quarter of 2008 is almost over. I haven’t done everything I have envisioned this, yet. Not quite enough time if I want to live a peaceful, unhurried life.
Recently a client of mine asked how I get everything done. I had to tell her that I don’t.
The only way to live a life that you love, is to make choices. And some of them will be hard. But, in order to make those choices, we need to know what is important to us. No, not what is important to your parents, your co-workers or the PTA.
You are the only you there is. If you are not doing what you were meant to do, who is doing it for you? It’s up to you. For example, I am not a good cook. I don’t do bake sales. My kids rave about how good so and so’s mom’s puppy chow is. I smile and give some change to get me something. Now my kids are older and if they want to participate, they bake while I oversee. You have got to taste their peanut butter kisses!
It’s a hard pill to swallow, realizing we can’t do everything we are asked to do or even everything we want to do. Not all at one time.
Picture yourself at the end of this year. What is the one thing, that if you don’t do, you will really regret?
