Before commenting, I went to Amazon and ordered the book you mentioned :) I love
to pitch in and serve and help... and I end up giving away time I need for me,
my home, my family. When I strike the right balance, I am happy and I am
pitching in and still taking care of me. This year (all 3 weeks of it) I've
been telling myself "put your oxygen mask on first". When there is an
imbalance the chaos from "over-giving/serving" leads to eating on the
run, skipping the gym or any exercise and weight creeps up. I wonder how much
this dynamic contributes to extra poundage seen on the pews.
Amen sister! Well said.
It's for our own safety. We have limits and boundary's all around us
but the one we have on our self. Ya don;t want to go over board and droned go
out of bounds or off sides. Dirty Harry said you have to know your limitations.
