It's the Year of Evaluation

I have said it before and I'll say it again, I've been doing some re-evaluating these last couple of months and will continue to do so in 2015. I have come to the conclusion that I need to focus on a few things that are important to me instead of halfway getting involved in a bunch of things. 

I saw something this morning that reminded me that no matter what you do and no matter how hard you try, you will never be good enough for some people. I can't believe I'm saying this, but that's ok. It really stinks because the person in question is someone I had a great deal of respect for, but clearly those people just aren't worth the time and energy I have been putting in. 

So instead of going to eight various meetings a month, I'm going to finish commitments and focus on the two or three causes that are close to my heart. I'd much rather feel appreciated and not talked about behind my back and actually have time to go better myself and my health than constantly feel like I'm running ragged because I'm always off doing something. I already have one thing that I'm counting down the days until my commitment ends and I guess I now have two.

That being said, I think I'm gonna go snuggle with my son on the couch. 

How's your weekend going?


  1. Sorry you had someone treat so badly! But it sounds like things will be less hectic for you.
    Hope you had a nice snuggle!

  2. Thanks, I did :-) Snuggling with my kids is one of my favorite things to do!

  3. I think that you're so smart!! It's easy to get involved in a lot of things and basically over extend ourselves. It's also very easy to let other people drain our energy and emotions. I really like the idea of choosing what's most important and focusing on those things and ... not giving unnecessary energy to those people who hurt us. Snuggling with kids ... what could be more important than that! :-)

  4. Yes, I have quickly become overloaded! I actually said no to something tonight instead of begrudgingly saying yes. It was quite liberating!


I love comments so leave me some love!
