I can’t stand too much butter on my toast. On the rare occasion when I eat a piece of bread, it has to be a certain way. It must have a perfectly thin layer of butter that has enough time to totally melt into the bread. If there are big globs of butter perched on top of what I’m eating, I just can’t stomach it.
But jelly is another story.
Have you ever been to a restaurant attempting to enjoy a tasty carb indulgence, only to be disappointed that the jelly comes in thimble-sized portions? As hard as you try, there’s only enough jelly there to tease you and not enough to enjoy its full flavor. Jelly that’s spread too thin is definitely not enjoyable.
Spreading yourself too thin isn’t good either.
Not Enough of You to Go Around
Do you ever feel like you’re running from one thing to another all day long? The obligations, chores, and responsibilities in our lives pull us in a million different directions if we let them.
On first glance, it may seem that we don’t have a choice. It all has to get done, right?
Well, maybe it does and maybe it doesn’t.
Do you really need to say “yes” to everything?
If we never slow down long enough to really evaluate how we’re spending our time, we will keep collapsing into bed at night and wondering where our day went.
You either find more jelly or eat less bread.
We can’t make any more hours fit into a day. It’s simply a matter of how we spread out our time.
Is there something you need to say no to today?
