Dear Stretched-Thin Girl,

It’s okay to say no.

No matter how much you want to please and give, no matter how much others expect of you or demand of you, the fact is that there is only have so much YOU to go around. There are only 24 hours in a day, and you only have so much brain space and energy and attention to give…and no one has the responsibility to measure out your precious resources but you. Youd have to do it.

Really think about what it would be like to scrape some things off your plate, for now or for good. How you would feel if this thing or that thing were no longer your burden?  Maybe it’s time to let some things go.

If you will listen very very very closely, you will know for sure what to hold on to…and what to let go…and where to spend your precious minutes and energies.

Often we have to choose what’s best over what’s just good.  And sometimes we need reminding that we have a choice at all.
So here’s your reminder…you have a choice. You always have a choice.

You are so very loved.
