Downsizing Your Activities

Our society tells us the more we do the more alive we are!  However, we can reach a point were we are just running from one activity to another.  We don't even get a chance to enjoy what we are doing.  At some point we all need to stop and take time to clear that calender and focus on things we truly want to participate in.  For example do you really have to volunteer at the school for every function?  Do you have to play on 2 different softball teams, or be the leader for ever one of your kids activities.  Sure these things are important but are you stretching yourself too thin?  Look at what you are doing and ask am I giving all these things 100% of myself if the answer is no, then you need to scale back.  There are more important things than being the top girl scout leader, spend more time with the family, with your partner, and with yourself.
