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.

comparison is the thief of joy, comparing to others
