It seems that the mental to-do lists are piling up. And with the never-ending piles, I find myself squeezing out the essentials. The other day I read a post at Rhapsody’s blog about obligations. In it she stated, “obligation is not truth it’s a choice”. Which had me thinking about all of the things I feel obligated to do because I made a commitment. I have always valued keeping my word. But saying yes to one thing is essentially saying no to another. For I simply can’t do it all.
It’s the things that matter most that often speaks the softest when you fail to do them. But it’s those those things that causes the greatest rift after continual neglect. So I am asking myself are the things I have chosen to obligate myself taking me away from the things that give me the vital nutrients my life needs.
