Today I am completely aware of the fact that I am a people pleaser. I don't like saying no because I like to make everyone happy. I guess part of me finds more worth in myself when I can help give someone else joy. Sometimes I can balance the act but usually I say yes to more things than I can manage. Instead of giving 100% to one thing, I take on 10 things and only give 10% of effort to each.
I've discovered saying yes to one thing usually means saying no to something else and a lot of the time that something else is myself.
So today I'm consciously choosing to give my full attention to each moment I am in. I'm giving deep thought to what my own body and mind need. I'm choosing to keep my current appointment with life by staying in the present moment instead of planning too far ahead and for things outside of my control.
