Oooooo - that was a really pushy title for this post!!!  Hee hee!  I just wanted to encourage everyone to be brave and face one thing that is weighing heavy on their mind! 

I just pulled out of a group I was in (not a DT position or owt!) - because I really just cant commit to it fully.  AND I FEEL SO GOOD!  It is like a huge weight has been lifted!  It was a lovely group (not demanding or anything) but I was feeling so bad that I couldnt keep on top of things with it - so I just left a lickle post for them explaining that I would be pulling out.  I know they will understand (or, of course, they may just start sending me hate mail!!!  Lolx).

SO - I wanted to spread this sense of relief far and wide - please, take the time to face something that has been weighing you down and deal with it!  We all know that those big deals are often not big deals when we get on and do something about them! 

Feel free to leave a comment if you do something then I can share in your relief too!

Thanks for popping by

Hi Ruthie,
saw your post on the said blog hun - I think you did the right thing - in fact I think I'm gonna join you! I am so busy these days what with one thing and another I just don't seem to have enough hours in the day and something has to give - and I think you just made me realise that was what I needed to do.
So, off to write me post now - thanks for the kick up the bum!!

I've not done anything today. But I have in the past. The relief I felt once I'd done it and didn't have to worry about not having the time to give it that I felt I should, anymore, was huge. xxx

Hi Ruth

I also have read your post and don't blame you one bit. There is no point in overextending yourself and at least I won't miss you cos you are my teamie too.

I will put my thinking hat on to see what I need to face up to.

Good on you.

Hugs Ali x

Well said Ruthie, so very true. I have had to face a lot of things and its funny how the smaller things seem to get us down more.

I cleared out my storage room today. Mind you, I seemed to just move everything out and then put it all back in again. Needed doing thought and yup, I feel good.
