I am so happy that you wrote this. My pie is picked apart, tasted by sneaky hands, dug through, and what is left is cut into tiny little pieces so that there is just a taste left on the plate. I LOVE ANALOGIES!!! It's how I view life and learn. What a great one!! I am just the same way. I want to be a part of it all. I want 10 new friends every day. I want to feel accomplishment in every single possible way. So much, that I don't accomplish any of it completely. I will keep this perfect analogy in my head forever now. You're awesome. Keep writing.

I think you have enough commitments right now.

If something "special" comes up and you really want to do it, go for it. But I don't see THAT as a commitment. I think you were wise to decline something that would take fixed hours at a fixed day/time.

Probably the same or a similar opportunity will be there down the road. Maybe even a better one.

We all have to learn to take care of ourselves. Sounds like that is what you are doing.


So much to do, so little time. It's one thing to say no to something you really don't want to do (it's still hard, even then) but choices between good things are frustrating. I have a list of my priorities right on my desk, and I have to check it often to see if I'm actually giving time to the activities I've deemed most important. It's fun to be busy unless you're too busy to have fun.

Aw, no worries, Cath. Do what you have to do and what's best for you. We'll miss you, but at least I get to see you every day at work! You have probably already been tagged, but if not, here's a ready-made blog post to help you out. See our blog for details! Love you!

Ahh, good looking pie, but do you have the time to eat it, share it with a friend or relative that stops by to say "Hi" If not, no matter how good it looks, it ain't gonna cut right.

Debbie Olson

Hmmmm. . . I think my pie is in crumb stage! Perhaps if one used a spoon to get it to the plate, it might make it. Seriously though, this was timely. Thank you for something quite worthy of further thought, Cath.
