Sometimes life gets so busy things fall by the wayside, tip off the edge and go rolling nowhere fast.
Last year, due to kids and work and training, I took a good look at a few things and had to purposefully cut them out or say no. I’ve learned to say no, to let things slide and to, what I call, Edit My Life.
Every Wednesday my calendar reminds me that I have to go teach swimming lessons. I left this job, that I did not particularly enjoy but it gave me things I needed in regards to training.
One day, one of my new revolving bosses came up to me and said I was going to have to teach more in order for them to keep me on staff. I told them I couldn’t give them anymore, they kept asking and I kept saying no. They wouldn’t keep me on for a few lessons a week no matter how many mommies and kids liked me, and they let me go.
Not having that job has been one of the best edits that has taken place. I keep it on my calendar as a reminder to me to stay true to what I want to do, give of my time wisely and give where it’s important.
Every Wednesday when my reminder pops up, I smile and a think, I am so glad I made that choice.Filed under Random thoughts | Comment (0)
