Free – Not Freeze

103. Free – Not Freeze

In the June 21 posting, I mentioned my involvement in a goal setting program called “Best Year Yet,” and my motto for one of my years. Another year my motto was: I Make Choices That Free Myself, Not Choices That Freeze Me.

I am a classic case of raising my hand too often. I truly get interested in a vast number of things, but there is a limit to what a person can do and do well. I have a hard time recognizing when I’m over the limit. But one of my clues is when I start getting frozen—which for me is the same as paralyzed.

When I have stepped up to the plate for too many things, I get overwhelmed and just barely slide in on deadline after deadline. When I start shedding some of those responsibilities, I find two things. One is that someone else can do it just as well or better, and number two, I am able to live with a freedom that is wonderful.

So, Ann—watch your choices!
