I Will Not Feel Guilty!

I Will Not Feel Guilty!

Well, I’m admitting it.  I just burnt out.  Many difficulties, challenges, and changes have descended on my work-world that I was unable to handle.  So next week, I’ll be taking some much needed R+R and seeking whitespace.

Yet in the midst of the storm and after taking a deep, deep breath, I gave my mind and soul permission to draw a few lines in the sand regarding emotional guilt that seemed to take over.  I suggest that you do the same — for the sake of your sanity, for the sake of your leadership, for the sake of people who love you.

Each of these lines begin with the statement “I WILL NOT FEEL GUILTY FOR …”

I WILL NOT FEEL GUILTY FOR ..

  • Being who God created me to be.
  • Taking time to care for me.
  • Saying ‘no’ to people and situations that drag me down.
  • Saying ‘yes’ to people and situations that give me life.
  • Using my passion to add value to others.
  • Pouring into my strengths and managing my weaknesses.
  • Not pleasing everybody.

Draw your line.  Be your best.

Peace!
