“Evaluate the people in your life; then promote, demote, or terminate. You’re the CEO of your life!”
Wow. This resonates with me so much right now. Maybe it does with you. If so, read on and share your comments.
The older I get (Yikes! I’m starting a lot of thoughts with that phrase lately!) the more precious my time is. I’m no longer willing to give it away to just anyone or anything.
Like you, I have work and family obligations that I must meet. I’m not talking about ditching responsibilities. I’m talking about closely examining who I do life with.
I’m talking about refusing to feel guilty when asked to do extras that aren’t in Gods plan for me. I’m talking about the fact that we each have 24 hours in a day and countless obligations. I’m talking about the fact that I must face facts: I do not have enough time for every friend, every party invitation, every committee meeting-no matter how worthy.
Like you, I could tell you dozens of stories about “friends” who did me dirty. I could tell you even more about wonderful friends who blessed my socks off. The thing is most of us are doing the best we can. There are people who are awesome humans, wives, and friends, but not for me. I want to be wise enough and brave enough in this next chapter of my life to -without burning bridges-say a fond farewell to some, while carving out time for those who make me better.
So, I’m thinking and praying. I’m touching base with those lovely ladies who lift me up and make me better. I’m making plans with those that pray for me, want good for me, and make time for me.
And I’m cutting loose those others.
I’d love to hear your thoughts on this. As always, I wish you MUCH joy!
