    So true! I found that In the past I felt really unaccomplished if I didn't finish my list, no matter how many things I had checked off. Now to combat that I try to make a list of the absolute must do's. That way if I get anything extra done, I feel really good about it!

    This is definitely me to a T, and I need to get better at prioritizing! Especially with the holidays around the corner, I take way too much on and then it flies by at lightning speed without being able to fully enjoy it šŸ˜›

    Usually when I try to do everything I get exhausted a quarter of the way through and give up. Not good.

    totally relate to this! i have started prioritizing 3 things to accomplish each day and if other things get done well then that's awesome but really those 3 things are where my focus is. it's been really helpful and cheers to pumpkin spice everything!

    I needed to read this today…I am at the place where I feel overwhelmed and deflated by my never complete to-do lists. I can do anything but not always everything, and that is okay.

    Saying both "yes" more and "no" more is so wise!

    I love this! I always start my morning off with an insane to-do list and high hopes. Towards the middle of the day I realize I have hardly accomplished anything. However, if I focus on the more important things… perhaps I can actually accomplish something!

    Every word of this post resonated with me. I'm completely a person who wants to do everything and push my boundaries and then I just end up being overwhelmed and not doing half as much as I could have if I just figured out what was important. It's a constant struggle of learning to reign it in and have more realistic ideals.

    Yes! This is something that I'm constantly reminding myself.

    The thing about going to school is that everything I put on my list really does need to be done eventually, and being who I am it needs to be done to the best of my abilities. But then, I don't want to give up blogging or watching TV or any of my enjoyable pastimes either.

    I am really trying to say No more this year. I tend to try to be there for everyone and end up wearing myself out. It's hard but it's worth it for your sanity.

    Amen, amen, amen. There is so much freedom to be enjoyed when we sit back and soak in life and say NO sometimes. šŸ™‚ I've been crazy frantic trying to perfect my classroom this week and after a few tears shed, I realized that it's not meant to be perfect. And that I just can't do everything. Thanks for reiterating that statement into my life! šŸ™‚
