They say it takes a big person to admit when they are wrong. I disagree. I think just a little humility does the trick.
So I humble myself before you and admit that I was wrong. I overestimated my abilities.
This weekend was the beginning of almost three weeks of (crazy, fun and exciting) activity I have scheduled. I’m looking forward to all of it. And I thought that I might be able to keep up my blog writing schedule in the midst of all of it. That’s where I was wrong.
After being up late the last two nights – for good things – and having a very busy “day off”, I had very little opportunity to write. Honestly, I am exhausted today. I know that my activities over the next two weeks are going to leave me tired out as well.
What do you do when you realize you have over-committed yourself? Do you push through and stress yourself out, like I have had a tendency to do in the past? Or do you reassess your commitments, as I chose to do today, and see where you can de-commit?
It is important that if you have made a commitment, and you find you are no longer able to keep it, that you formally de-commit from it. It shows the Universe, and anyone else involved, that your word and your commitments are meaningful to you.
I encourage you to examine the commitments you have made recently. Which ones fulfill you? Which ones are a chore? Which ones totally stress you out? And which ones can you de-commit from, even if only temporarily?
Except for a possible surprise post, I’ll be back November 19th. See you then!
