You don’t have to please everyone. You don’t have to say yes to everything. I’m all about being of service but when we are burned out because we spread ourselves too thin we can’t fully show up for anyone. Think carefully when someone asks you something today. Whether it’s a task or project to take on, an activity to go to or just “one little favour”.
Your time is precious so choose how you use it wisely.
People are often focused on their own agenda and they might ask you for something but it doesn’t mean you have to say yes. You might have to disappoint someone but you know what? They will survive. It’s not to say to bail out on people or be selfish, it’s to find a balance between the giving and the receiving.
Find balance between being there for others and being there for yourself.
Make yourself a priority when planning your schedule. Book non negotiable “me time”, even if it’s just 30-60 minutes. Once you replenish yourself you will feel so much fuller and energized.
Don’t forget yourself while you are serving others. That’s not what your life is supposed to be.
Cherish helping, supporting and giving but also taking care of your dreams and goals. Wishing you a wonderful Friday where you weigh carefully what you say yes and no to.
