This time of year, it often feels as if the pace of life has speeded up and, sometimes, that there is just too much going on. In the modern world, we do indeed have a lot of assorted obligations and distractions, which can make it hard to keep track of all the details.

What’s good about it, though, is that we also have a lot of choices. We don’t have to stay in one place doing the same things forever. Instead, we can pick and choose among the many possibilities that are open to us, keeping the ones we most enjoy and letting the others go.

Word-art with many inspirational messages, beginning with "This is your life. Do what you love, and do it often."

  1. HI Meg! Good to see a post again from you. This is so true. Often we forget that we can let go. As one quote that I like says. We are not trees we can move! 🙂

  2. We really need to be grateful to live in a place and time that we can make choices, sadly many women can’t.

    • Yes, you are right Elizabeth — we are very fortunate just to be able to write and read blogs; many people don’t even have that opportunity.
