"There will never be an end to the requests upon your time.
It's your place to tell the world you've got to rest a while.
And everything is important, and everything is not.
At the end of your life, your relationships are all you've got."
--Sara Groves, Just One More Thing
This is one lesson I'm continually learning. It hit home in a tough way today. Gosh, how hard it is to say no, particularly when it has to do with family, friends or a good opportunity. Being the people lover (and people pleaser?) that I am, I hate to disappoint. But as one friend said, "sometimes, it can be really freeing to say no."
Hat tip to my friend Jessica for bringing the Sara Groves song to mind.
