Be True to You


You are not a superhero, so you can't do everything. There is only one of you, so you can only be at one place at any given time.  Even if you are a multi-tasking wizard, everything cannot be done all at once.

The best thing that you can do is be true to yourself. That means accepting your human limitations. Don't over extend yourself and be realistic in your offerings.  

Do not promise more than you can deliver. Honor yourself by giving only what is available and stopping when it's time. Take care in extending yourself to others and they will take care in what they ask of you.

When you are true to yourself, all is well. Being true to you means doing only what you can do, whatever that looks like for your life.

Life is so much better when we put limits on ourselves to the point that we're not stressing to do things for others. Great post.

I'm so glad I came accross your blog!! I needed to read this post,I use to struggle with trying to please everyone but myself so bad that I end up in the long run worn out!! My offerings were so on and beyond with no limitations and I feel good knowing I slowed all that down and it's good I did.Thanks for your post,It helps me to know I can limit things and still feel good.It is ok.
