In Pursuit of Peace
by Tracey Metzger
Saying no more than yes is the key to staying sane these days.
I want to say yes to everything.
But I can’t do everything well.
Other people seem to be able to juggle more than I can.
One of two things is probably true:
1) They actually have greater ability to juggle than I do.
2) They do a good job hiding that things are slipping.
That’s why I need to:
1) Be okay with knowing my capacity for “things I can juggle” may be less than someone else’s.
2) Stop comparing myself to others.
Comparison is the thief of peace.
